Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a half inch thick, creamy white head. Dissipates after a minute and leaves nice lacing.

Smell - Caramel, toasted malts, some spices, grains, and bread.

Taste - Toasted malts up front, a little bit of caramel, grains and bread, some spices I can't really point out, and leaves a strong bitter and floral aftertaste in your mouth.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - This beer isn't bad. Although I'm not too fond of floral flavors.

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.
