I tried this at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. $5 for a 12oz bottle served in a pint glass.
The beer poured a crystal clear red/copper/amber color with a big 3-finger white head that lasted awhile and left some tremendous lacing.
Pleasant bready malt smell with some aromatic hops and spices in the background.
This is a spicy Oktoberfest. Plenty of bready malt and traditional caramel sweetness, but this one also has a mild hop bite to it along with a pronounced spiciness. It's very good.
Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
I like what they did with this one.

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.
