4.08/5 rDev +11.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Geaghan's Pub pint glass.
A--2 finger foamy head, most of which disappears but leaves enough for some lacing. Beer pours a reddish amber--reminiscent of the oncoming fall season
S--I'm terrible at this category, but this beer made it easier on me with big toasted malt smells and a faint honey sweetness in the nose.
T--Follows the nose for the most part, with a lot of roasty toasty malt up front with plenty of caramel and a little what almost tastes like rye spiciness, followed at the end by a bit of hop bitterness. This beer is pretty front loaded though, like a well built Bavarian beer wench in a dirndl. If anything it's a little watery toward the middle and end of the taste spectrum.
M&D--Mouthfeel is chewy with a lively carbonation to balance it out. Eminently quaffable at five and a half ABV.
I don't know anything about this style and this is the first Oktoberfest I've reviewed, but I could be fully satisfied with a giant mug of this before me resting on a wooden table under an outdoor tent with only my lederhosen to keep me warm.

Review from notes
Auburn colored, nice lacing. Mildly nutty with a good dose of malts. Slight touch of metallic. Flavor is malt forward with delicate hop finish. Mild bitterness. Smooth carbonation, crisp. Pretty good overall. Not something I want to seek out but if it's there I'll drink it.
Serving type: on-tap

3.13/5 rDev -14.2%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: 1" cream colored head fades fairly quickly leaving faint soapy looking lacing. Amber color and somewhat cloudy with moderate carbonation
Aroma: toasted bread, caramel, a bit of hop spice
Mouthfeel: mostly light but not as light as a pale lager, just slightly sticky, somewhat dry finish Flavor: toasted bread, caramel malts, a definite hop bite in the middle and finish.
Overall: very good, but not the best Oktoberfest.
