3.5/5  rDev -12.1%

A- big foamy ivory white head that lasted a long time and left pretty decent lacing. Clear, amber, honey gold. Most appealing.

S- clean, malty, bready, (slightly) spicy.

T- toasted malts, biscuity, caramel. Very, very pleasant.

M- light, smooth. Excellent balance.

O- very nice. A solid brew. Never used to be a big fan of Marzen/Oktoberfest, but starting to enjoy more and more. Would have again (and again) and definitely recommend.

500 ml bottle, the beer pours a mostly clear dark gold/amber color with about an inch frothy off-white head that sticks around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel and bready malt, honey, and light earthy hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of apple and dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good Oktoberfest brew, I'd buy this again in the future. $3.49 a bottle.

500 ml bottle.
pours big pillowy head-about 3 fingers worth. very carbonated, golden amber in color. scent is of big toasted bread maltiness.
big flavor-caramelized malt is pronounced, toasty, warm, creamy mouthfeel. a great fest bier. this has gotta be one of the better examples of the style.

Good amount of lacing which disappears quickly. Clean and spicy smell. Caramel and honey taste with medium carbonation. Pretty smooth beer. My first real oktoberfest and I am impressed.
