12oz bottle given to me by demcorhip, poured into a pint glass.
Vigorous pour produces a full 2 inches of head, retains well and leaves a little wet lace. Light orange colour, appears to be filtered. Carbonation is subtle. Aroma is very sweet with caramel and apple juice in the forefront. Lots of graininess and earth with a subtle pepperiness in the background.
Flavour is juicy and full of apples and pears then followed by a bit of nuttiness and lots of grain. Damp earth, then some peppery spice. I'm not going to lie, this is more than a little bit sweeter than I would like, a bit more balance would be lovely. Mouthfeel is very wet and almost watery with a bit of stickiness in the throat, carbonation is very mild. All in all, one will do, this is a very sweet Oktoberfest and I prefer a little more balance on the palate.
