Poured from a 12oz. bottle with another spectacular Ralph Steadman drawn label, always entertaining. Typical Marzen coppery colored amber, crystal clear with a frothy white finger of foamy head that slowly fades away to a whitish light ring of lace. Aroma is malty, sweet dark dried fruit, roasty grain and caramel. Taste is lighter than the smells lets on, a little watery in comparison to other O'fests I've sampled. Mainly characterized by a giant malty backbone with undertones of sweet toffee/caramel and the roasty malt aftertaste. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with moderate carbonation, leads the light, smooth characteristics of this beer. Smooth and silky, goes down with the faintest drying roasty malt aftertaste. Drinkability is great, just a hair over 5% abv, and an appreciative yet not overbearing complexity make this a superb session brew. Overall, another great beer from the folks at Flying Dog, but not the best Oktoberfest there is. Would purchase again, definitely worth a try.
