look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: a nice amber color with an unusually nice clarity. A finger of a tannish head that retains very well

Smell: strong malts, slight bitter hops. Slight fruitiness

Taste: starts off with a subtle fruitiness, and rich caramel malts. Stays pretty malt strong but with a nice small dose of hops for balance

Mouthfeel: slightly creamy and medium bodied. Strong clean feel but some taste left over.

Overall: I had all but given up on oktoberfest beers but gave this one a shot just for the respect I have for the brewery. This one gives me everything I want in an Oktoberfest and works well on a way too cold summer day

Serving type: bottle
