Served this in a Green Bay Packers pint glass.

Pours an amber color with a 1 finger white pancake head that lingers around for awhile and then leaves a white ring around the edges. Notes of sweet caramel malts, fresh grapes, bread, maybe a hint of syrup. Tastes of dark bread, roasted malts, caramel, and maybe a touch of earthy hops on the backend. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean, refreshing, balanced, and light in body with minimal carbonation.

Man this is one fine Oktoberfest. Extremely drinkable during a nice fall afternoon when you want something sweet, light, and refreshing. Flavors are slightly subdued but its perfect for the style. This is perhaps the best Oktoberfest I've had.

Cheers!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a nice copper orange. A finger or more of a tannish head with pretty good retention. Leaves a good strong lacing along the sides of the glass. Strong clarity and a good brightness.

Smell: nutty. Earthy. Some slight caramel. Some grassiness. Some toasted malts

Tastes: opens with a little bit of toasted malts and some lightly sweet caramel malts. Some grassiness comes across from time to time. Some slightly spicy noble hops come through towards the end.

Mouthfeel: lighter. A little bit overly sweet.

Overall: not a bad beer but not on my list to drink again. A bit to sweet and not quite as balanced as I'd prefer.
