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.
