Poured a nice clear amber body with a one finger white head. Very nice and true to style. Scents of rich, sweet malt, a light toasted aroma and a very faint citrus. Overall impression is of a nice, clean Oktoberfest aroma, though the citrus is an odd touch, but not unpleasant. Flavor begins with a nice rich malty sweetness, moving into a nice toasted malt character with an extremely faint touch of lemonade. Middle continues these flavors but gets a little drier, with a very faint hint of alcohol present. Finish is medium-dry with a nice presence of toasted malt. Overall impression is of a clean, malty flavor that is balanced between rich malt and toasted malt. The lemonade flavors faintly in the background are not traditional, but not unpleasant. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. Quite nice and very true to style. Overall this a decent example of an Oktoberfest. It stays mostly to style in most respects and what it does differently is not unpleasant and works with the flavor profile and aroma. Nothing spectacular, but good all around.
