Growler from the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a nice white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty, with a strong caramel presence. Flavor is a nice blend of sweet malt and hops. A solid offering in the Oktoberfest style. No wonder this is considered by many to be the best of the style in the country.

Poured on tap at the brewery.
Pours a deep caramel red, with a medium head that doesn't leave a huge amount of lacing. Not bad though. The color is really great. Very clear, but dark.
This is a great smelling beer. Delicious caramel malts, light noble hops, faint biscuit, some sugar.
This is an amazing Octoberfest. Might be the best tasting Octoberfest I've ever had. It has the same taste profile any other Octoberfest has, but it has a much more intense taste. I'm not sure I can put it into words, other than Free State expertly lagered this beer. It's very crisp, very clean, yet very sweet with a bitterness from the noble hops that perfectly counterbalances the sweet biscuity malt.
Despite being around 6% alcohol, and despite being a darker lager - it's perfectly sessionable. A very easy, very delicious beer you can pound with ease.

Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on top of a copper body.
Smell is wet grain and a little earthy.
Taste has good malt sweetness, but not too much. Mild bitterness. Bready and malty overall.
Crisp, but still smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A good beer. If you find one, drink it.
