I got a 5 liter mini-keg for $10.99 so I'm not complaining too much. Good beer, not exceptional but solid. Pretty thin appearance for a fest beer - gold like a lager. Smells of caramel mostly and a bit toasty, cookie dough, malty, spicy. Tastes of vanilla, caramel, slight hops, alcohol is hardly noteceable, even though 6.3 is relatively strong. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy with a spiky finish. This is treating me right. I don't get any off flavors. Not the best Oktoberfest ever made, but in the class of very good beer.

A-Pours gold. Head is decently large. Leaves mild lacing. Pours mostly clear too.

S-German hops. Some skunkiness. Malt balances out the hops and the skunk. Lightly watery but there isn't much of an alcohol presence.

T-Spicy and German hoppy. Slight metallic twang along with a bit of skunk too. The negative aforementioned flavors are minimal though. Finishes malty and pretty crisp.

M-Lighter side of medium body. Alcohol masked well. Plenty of carbonation. Sessionable feel.

O/D-Pretty easy drinking Oktoberfest. Had it a bit out of date but this isn't a hop bomb so I don't think the flavor degraded much. Pretty mild; the skunk/metallic taste is off-putting but it is very minimal. Had a single, and that was enough.

Sampled from a mini-draft Keg. Not sure if that counts as a "draft" "Cask" or "Can" But anyway, here goes..

A: A slightly dirty yellow in color. Plenty thick white head on top.

S: There is a nice malty and bready smell right off the bat. Behind that there is a very sweet smell that I can’t quite put my finger on. Possibly a pancakes and syrup thing.

T: There is a toast flavor at first. There is a slight herbal note in the finish, as well as a hint of spice. The finish is more toasty malt.

M: Medium light in body, the carbonation is quite active.

O: Overall a decent beer, tasty but nothing remarkably striking about it.

The beer exits the 11.2 ounce green bottle a crystal clear golden color with a towering cap of white foam above. The aroma is mainly consists of bready notes with some husky grains mixed in. Lots of lightly toasted malt on the palate. The barley is clean and thorough. A touch of grassy hops at the end rounds it out. A fine beer, nothing outstanding, but nothing particularly to complain about either.
