Single bottle (early October date) poured into a tumbler. Appearance - Some white foam that died down quickly and left some broad lacing on the glass - really not a lot. The color is a nice coppery orange - with just a little bit of carbonation coming up in the glass - the bubbles move up quite slowly.
Smell - quite delicious. Lots of toasted malt and a hint of something caramel - but not too much.
Taste - quite nice. Sweet caramel malt, something that reminds me of crackers (a buttery one, not a dry saltine), and a hint of bitter at the end. Well balanced and it was a taste that made me want more.
Mouthfeel - some carbonation on the tongue, a bit thick but again, not in an unpleasant way.
Drinkability - this went fast with dinner and I think if I was in an actual Oktoberfest event, this stuff would be gone fast and I'd easily be ordering another. Very nice beer with a meal in that it doesn't overpower the meal (which was a simple beef, onion and noodle dish) and satisfies at the end.
