Poured into a pint glass.
Poured into a pint glass with about 1/8" of carbonation that dissipates very quickly. Very distinct copper color and relatively clear.
The beer is very hoppy to an almost herbal degree but yet sweet. The malts used are very quant in smell but provide an almost flowery aroma, yet are blended with the hops in the smell.
The beer provides for a seemingly balanced mix of lighter malt with mild hops. The hops are evident in the after taste to a degree.
The beer feels light but very carbonated but is very smooth. It has a bit of a dry aftertaste that slowly follows.
This beer is smooth and easy to drink. Nothing overly bountiful in terms of taste but provides a mild hop balance that is mixed in with the lighter malts nicely.

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.
