Sampled last night on 9/5/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled glass stein.

Pours a pretty copper-amber in color with a thin off-white head like most brews of this style. Just some spotty lacing is seen as well. The aroma is of sweet caramel malts for the most part. More going on with the taste with some toffee, yeast with a hint of nuts. Perfect carbonation and medium bodied. Lots of good flavor and goes down pretty easy. Just a very slight hoppy aftertaste that doesn't last for a few seconds. Overall, a good Oktoberfest brew.

12oz can poured into a snifter 9/4/2014.

A- Darker clear orange body, one finger white head with good retention. Not a whole lot of lacing. [3.75]

S- Grainy malt sweetness reminding me mostly of toffee, some bitter noble hops. Solid, nothing too crazy complex but it is very nice. [3]

F- Toffee, grains, noble hops, bread, caramel, nuttiness. This is what I expected it to taste like. Very solid. [3.75]

M- Medium bodied, smooth and silky but with good carbonation. Very drinkable yet very flavourful. [3.75]

O- Pretty good Oktoberfest lager; not quite GLBC but this is pretty dang good for its pricepoint. [3.75]

Final score: 3.60
