This oktoberfest is definately on the dark side, but no less festive with a deep glowing amber-ruby hue. Clear as glass. Very respectable off-white head is perfumed with ale fruit, caramel, and toasted nuttiness.
This is one O/M with some oomph, or maybe oom-pa is more like it. Very light sweetness slides into nutty tastes and quickly darkens to deep malt/ caramel sweetness. There is an undersatated fruitiness in the forefront of this beer. Malt flavor continues to fill out as hop bitterness comes on strong in the finish. This can definately stand up to heavy food, which is important to me in this style. However, slight heaviness of this beer hurts drinkability, which is also important for this style. I wish the overall taste was brighter, but this is a special O-fest.
