A little too tart for my taste, not my favorite Oktoberfest but one I wouldn't mind having from time to time.

This Oktoberfest is a sort of coppery-brown, murky in color but fairly clear. The head is more of a wispy foam, or at least it lasts longer as that than its very original form. Mottled lace is left behind sparsely.
There's a lightly grainy edge in the nose, but more toast than anything. There's a bready element to strengthen the malt foundation and a bit of herbal hop leaf to balance. It takes on a bit of mineral, and is a little rough around the edges with minimal sweetness, but it works well.
The flavor is, like the aroma, mainly toasty with some doughier notes, but set alongside it it equal strength is some citrus, more zest (peel) than anything and more orange/grapefruit than sour or tangy. It's also balanced by leafier/herbal hops. There's a little nut, and a touch of grass lingers softly.
The feel is nice and clean with a smooth flow and a nice, strong crispness that's not too hard for the medium body.
