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 Had it a bit out of date but this isn't a hop bomb so I don't think the flavor degraded much.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.
