look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours what I would imagine the color created when there are drops of red, orange and yellow bled together...nice active appearance with a very thin lacing of head

S: Grainy, somewhat sweet...but very "beer" on the nose if that makes sense...

T: definite splashes of sweetness washed across this grainy-corny-malty beer... for a Oktoberfest, pretty good

M: Light to Medium in body..somewhat creamy. But easy to drink.

O: I realize I'm late in the season, but this is one of my favorite Oktoberfests out there.. had it before, I'm sure I'll have it again-

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: A bright shade of bronze with nice clarity and a modest white head that is well retained.
S: Toasted bready malt, lager yeast and slight vegetal character.
T: Rich toasted bready malts with a hint of sweetness. Toasted malt is light but not thin. Finish is clean and dry with just a bit of citric bitterness at the end.
M: Light body with crisp carbonation.
This is a top tier lager. A very clean and precise Oktoberfest that compares well with any US-brewed versions of the style.

3.53/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into pint glass.

Pours a deep gold with almost-white head and a little bit of lacing.
Small, almost unnoticeable particulates.

Nose gives off the fruity, metallic, grain flavor typical to lighter Oktoberfest beers.

Taste is sweet, grainy, with a decent hop bitterness to balance it out.

Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied and slightly syrupy, but finishes clean.

Overall a tasty and clean beer. I'm somewhat off-put by the syrupy mouthfeel, but quickly disappears so as not to detract from the total experience of the beer. Would drink again.
