12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent copper; small white head that fades quickly. It doesn't leave much lacing and retention, but the color is great. The aromas are extremely grainy. Lots of bread notes. Hints of caramel, butterscotch, and cherries. There's something off with the aromas, and I can't quite put my finger on it. The flavors are nice. I'm picking up alot of cherries. More caramel in the mix with subtle hints of toffee. There's no alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is awesome! It's extremely fluffy and creamy. It's medium-bodied; active but subtle carbonation. Mouthfeel makes this dangerously drinkable. Nice brew.

This is a very solid Oktoberfest. It's pretty straight forward, but there's enough to keep you interested. Nice flavors.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Clear amber with 1/2 finger of off-white head. Decent retention and heavy carbonation.

Nose
Sweet brown breads and caramelized brown sugar.

Taste
Sweet brown bread, banana bread and caramelized brown sugar. Candy-like sugar notes and some earthy, leafy hops. Touches of lemongrass.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, silky, crisp and refreshing.

Overall
This is definitely one of the better Oktoberfests! Don't miss out on it.

Pours a clear auburn to burnt orange hue. Nice thin white head. Balanced mouthfeel. Pretty much perfect taste for a Marzen style. No real heavy aroma to speak of. Who doesn't look forward to mid-August every year? Fall and Winter Seasonal's is when most breweries get to expand their horizons without being "weird". This offering from Left Hand is for sure a good one to get your hands on.
