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.

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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft tumbler

A- Copper with great clarity. White head. Dense. Speckles of lacing.

S- Smell is toasty malt with some nice earthy noble hops. Subtly spicy. Also a subtle sweetness.

T- Sweetness comes out more, but is fairly delicate. Hops are earthy and balance well. All backed up by a toasty malt character.

M- Medium body. Crisp finish. Carbonation is fine.

O- Very tasty. Hop profile is great. The malt character is a great balance of toasty and sweet.
