Pours a rich golden amber color with a two-finger head of just off-white. Sheets of lacing line the mug. Active carbonation bubbles rush to the surface, making this beer appear quite lively. The nose is of roasted malt, fresh bread and sweet caramel corn. The palate is, thankfully, not over sweet. A nice roasty malt flavor is dominent, but the somewhat yeasty, bready character is assertive. Very mild hop balance, but enough to temper the sweetness sufficiently. Mouthfeel is medium witha nice carbonation "bite." Finish is smooth enough, and only somewhat dry. Maybe not my very favorite Oktoberfest for the year, but it is among the better examples I've had for 2007. I'd say maybe only Millstream is better, over all, of the 4-5 O-Fests I've tried so far. Another very solid brew from Schlafly.
