The Real Ale Oktoberfest poured a deep amber with plenty of malt on the nose which is in keeping with the style. The taste had a loads of caramel malt with a slight nuttiness and a little bitterness on the end to keep it from being overly sweet. The Real Ale Oktoberfest is an exceptional local take on the style and I found it highly drinkable and refreshing. This brew from Real Ale really hit the spot.

After having their Altbier I'm expecting them to tackle German styles well.

Pours a clear deep orange with an off-white head. Retains well and leaves some lacing.

Breadiness upfront with some sweeter caramel in behind with some spicy and herbal hop.

Lightly toasted bread and caramel. Low bitterness with some herbal and earthiness to it.

Sturdy bodied with plenty of carbonation to move pleasantly along the palette.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Slightly hazy dark amber with a tan-colored head, which soon fades to a slight dusting on the surface. The lacing is thick, glass-coating, and fine-beaded.

Aroma: Rich dark bread aroma is paired with moderately spicy hops and caramel.

Taste: Strong malt backbone with crusty dark bread and caramel notes, these carry the taste from start to close. There are also moderately spicy, earthy hops, and a bit of alcohol. Late in the taste there is a little wave of herbal hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, pleasant, with little carbonation noted..

Drinkability/notes: A very pleasant and drinkable example, which compares favorably to native German examples.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck style bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
