12 oz bottle (as pictured).
Pours a clear coppery color, with a tan head, quickly fading foam.
Smell is of toasted malt and caramel.
Taste is much the same, caramel flavors and mild amount of hop bitterness to keep everything in balance. Lots of carbonation give a crisp mouthfeel.
A drinkable example of the style, no complaints.

I figured the Oktoberfest beer I could make my first would be from my favorite mainstream-brewer, Leinenkugel, and I wasn't disappointed. Not really knowing how an Oktoberfest beer is supposed to taste, I went in with no expectations, and came out with a great beer, full of pleasant caramel malt character and mildly bitter and refreshing crispness. Keep 'em coming, Leinie, and I'll keep drinking.
