12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
Look: Clear brass color, excellent lacing
Smell: Clean, deep maltiness, faint taffy, loaf of bread, peppery, faint whiff of alcohol
Taste: Super clean, lots of bready tones, crust and toast, noticeable hop bitterness, herbal flavor, mild spice, nutty graininess, drying and still very clean aftertaste
Superb, one of the best of its style. Great job guys!!

Beer review from BA Mag Oct 2007.
While many beer geeks dream of one day going to Munich to celebrate Oktoberfest, many others have come to appreciate locally brewed Oktoberfest beer right in their back yard. Left Hand uses both Munich and Pilsner Malt with German Magnum and Vanguard hops to achieve their autumnal offering.
The carbonation has no problem pushing up a sizable head, which seems to take forever to dissipate. Glowing orange-amber-color shows a stunning clarity. Big malt nose with aromas of toasted bread, grainy crackers and a hint of sweetness that lays up against an herbal hop. Creamy mouthfeel with a rolling crispness that comes off the top of the medium body. Quick breath of alcohol. Biscuity flavor all around, sticking to the palate. Very clean from top to bottom. Hop bitterness shows just enough to balance and leaves a bit of herbal flavor from middle to end. Finishes toasty sweet with a light lingering hop.
We sized this one up and it came through like a champ. Not only does it have the upper hand for freshness compared to its German counterparts, but it drops a complex but drinkable malt bomb on the taste buds. Worthy of a mass ja!
