3.95/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.
A Great Lakes bottle with no 'Best By' date marked? Weird.
A: Pours amber in color with a thin white soap-bubbly head that leaves light lacing.
S: Not much of a smell to speak of. A bit malty and toasty.
T: Light malt sweetness and a bit of hop bitterness in the aftertaste, well balanced. Finishes sweet and a bit dry, as well as a bit of diacetyl buttery-ness, but not offensive. The toasty malt character is enjoyable.
M/D: Nice medium and creamy body with just enough carbonation. Goes down easy and is extremely drinkable.
A very nice fall time beer.

I know it's almost to early to think about the leaves changing colors, but this beer does just that. The amber color was clean and head great with nice lacing on the glass. Smell was nice and malty. On the front end the taste was smooth for a 6.5% beer and finished just as smooth. Overall a very nice for anyone looking to drink a good beer. I will get another six pack of this one.

Great Lakes Oktoberfest from Great Lakes Brewing Co., a seemingly early start, but whatever. Poured from the bottle into a liter glass drinking boot, this brew's got a 3 finger thick pale tan head, knockout lacing& a body that is the textbook definition of amber. What a sexy beer!
I smell gloriously roasted malts; perhaps a dash of caramel. A satisfyingly full aroma.
Tastes nearly identical. Full as they come and still crisp! Earthier hops balance this brew out JUST enough. I love the taste
Mouthfeel is smooth and clean. No lingering elements here.
Overall, a fist pumping 4.25 is given to Great Lakes Oktoberfest from Great Lakes Brewing Co. I implore you to give this brew a chance. It blew me away, obviously. This brew will be a staple in my fridge during its circulation period.
