Great Lakes - Oktoberfest
Bottled in Cleveland, Ohio. This has been one of my favorites too. It poured a decent head and a ver nice amber, redish-golden, perfectly clear color. The head didn't last very long in the mug, but neither did the beer :)
It had all the maly taste along with a hint of some hoppy spice, but I couldn't taste the 6.5% ABV at all. I've had a few that tasted a bit thicker somehow, but this was just about perfect.
I'll definately have to add this to my "must remember" list and look for it again.
My bottle has a "please enjoy by:" date of 10/25/12, puchased and consumed on 9/24/12. There's also 10203DE stamped below the date, no indication of what that's for though.

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.
