look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Crystal clear ruby tan color, little creamy head decent messy lacing.

Nose macro lager, sweet caramel, minerals, reddish malt, mild unhappy lager.

Taste big macro lager flavor, unhappy lager yeast, minerals, faint skunky like quality, big sweet caramel malts, bitter hop note but a bad bitterness somehow. Quite fruity too.

Mouth med to lighter bod, decent carb

Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest is a decent marzen-style beer. It has a bit of a watery taste, but it doesn't water down the flavor of the beer all the way.

Appearance - pours to a clear amber color

Overall - This is an average Oktoberfest. It is lighter than some Oktoberfests. This is a good beer to ease into an Oktoberfest but others are better. Needs more flavor.
