This is a wonderfull Oktoberfest, with a nice raisiny- spicey alcoholic quality and zesty complexity along with a creamy feel.

Bright gold and somewhat bubbly, it has a very large faintly off-white head that shrinks very slowly to a thin, lasting top. It produces sme decent lace in foamy rings.

The aroma is wonderful, full-bodied bread crust quality with raisiny sweet alcohol, grass, herbs, hints of lemon and butter.

The taste is similar, zesty, sweetly and spicly alcoholic raisin and grape with a creamy butter quality, a lot of bread and some hay and grass, hints of grain, grass, herbs, lemon zest and pear. It's zesty, with great balance and a finish that's tingly, zesty, lightly bitter with warm alcoholic bite.

$1.79 for a 11.2oz green bottle @ BevCo. Pours out to a sparkingly clear golden, forming a voluminous creamy white head no thanks to it's brisk carbonation. Retention and lacing are superior. Great looking beer. The nose is that of Heiniken...fresh hay and skunk. The mouthfeel is pleasantly fizzy, crisp, clean and with a medium-light body. The taste is that of a Munich Helles Lager more than an Oktoberfest, as it is light in color, with a more pronounced hop bitterness and bite, and no toasty munich malt flavor. The hop bitterness is well-balanced and spritely. My GF thought it tasted like a strong Heiniken as well.

While I wouldn't quite call this an Oktoberfest, it is a delicious beer, and I would buy it again.
