They must have gotten a new logo on their bottle; the one I got was blue and appeared to have a wild cat of some sort on it. Doesn't really scream Oktoberfest but then again I selected it based on appearance at a beer store and chose it over many more common-looking bottles based on appearance alone. So, good job there Left Hand.
Anyway, it pours a good-lookin' reddish color with a decent head, though I could have used a little more in that department. The deep copper hues definitely looked appetizing though.
The scent is toasty caramel and hints of herb. I could have used a little more here, just a bit.
It has a nice malt profile; it hits the tongue with a bready sweetness (you get just a hint of alcohol) and it finishes off cinnamon and the faintest hint of herbs. The hop balance is perfect.
The mouthfeel is flawless, really. It has a semi-dryness to it that goes perfectly with the taste and medium body.
This is a very well-balanced beer and one of the better Oktoberfests I've had.

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis
Appearance - Clear copper colour with an average size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, hay/straw/grass
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and light hops. There is also some tea, straw/hay and a grassiness.
Overall - Not my favourite style, but a pretty decent effort. Not something I'd seek out again, but worth a try.
