Fairly tasty. Well carbonated. Nothing overpowering. I don't think I would pay for them but would definitely drink one if offered for free.

Pours into a chalice with a deep copper color, and a big thicket of beige khaki head which forms fine even lacing…so far a pretty great looking uber O fest here. Typically in the past with Big Eddy releases from Leinenkugel they seem to be overcarbonated or too thin for the style with a lot of booze.

Aroma has sugar layered toasted malts, creamy vegetal texture something very fruity and pleasant right off the bat a hint of mild citrus the label does say “A bolder tastier take on an Oktoberfestbier dry hopped for added complexity”.

Flavor is upfront sweet, honey malts toasted malts, slight nutty character…but really too much of an all-encompassing sweetness feels like it coats the palate completely.

Mouthfeel harder to enjoy as the sweetness just seems to build, usually a crisp easy drinking style…the uber O fest beats your palate up a bit booze isn’t as ridden as I’ve seen in their other big beer releases, but it’s the unrelenting sweetness.

Overall I’m not disappointed that I tried this one, but it shows that a nice Vienna style lager/Oktoberfest style lager is so much more drinkable than something like this.
