4.1/5 rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Copper colored and translucent. Strong carbonation feeds a small, 1/2 inch head that seems to last awhile. Condensation gleans off the sides, which adds to the look.
S: Faint herbal hops. Mild grainy sweetness. Some hints of toastiness. Good aromas, but nothing overpowering.
T: Lovely maltiness. Rich flavors with toffee and even a little caramel. Ends with a pleasant toastiness. The hops are there and balance it out with a clean bitterness. The hop flavor is mostly herbal. No off flavors and remarkably clean. Solid flavor overall, but nothing that stands out.
M: Light bodied. Finishes clean, dry and not overly sweet. Good carbonation.
D: A really nice Oktoberfest. Nothing over the top, but that's ok. Very solid flavors and a clean finish make this beer amazingly drinkable. It was hard to drink just one in a sitting. I really enjoyed this beer. Give it a try.

4.14/5 rDev +2%

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.
