Pours a huge, soft, soapy head that has great retention and laces nicely. Surprisingly aromatic. Bright, spicy-floral hop aroma. I think the malt is even in there. Radiant, gold color that is slightly amber. Starts off with spicy, floral hops and a touch of bitterness. A sweetness underlies it all. Then the malt moves in with big notes of biscuit. Finish is a wonderful blend of spicy hops and sweet, biscuity malt.

This tastes like autumn. It has that perfect blend of spicy hop and malt. Just excellent. I thought I remembered not liking this one, so I'd been avoiding purchasing it for awhile (plus having 2 years without being near Wisconsin), but I was wrong. This is wonderful.

Nice rep for the style. Color was a nice golden/red. The head presented itself nicely, about a half of inch but then dissipated quickly. I'm usually looking for a little more malty finish in an Oktoberfest, it was briefly there but not as pronounced as I look for in this style. Overall this is a very drinkable offering from an outstanding brewery. If you get a chance to pick up a sixpack or better yet, if you get a chance to have this on tap– I wouldn't pass it by. It'll be well worth the cost.
