look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a deep copper/orange color with a creamy head roughly 2 fingers in width; leaves nice lacing and shows good activity of carbonation.

S - Other than some mild notes of spice, there's not a lot going on with the aroma on this one; not unpleasant, but not superb.

T - What it lacks in smell, it makes up for in taste; has a sweet taste of caramel that is balanced nicely with a slight blend of hops; one of the better tasting Oktoberfest beers I have drank.

M - Nice and thick, but not too chewy; full-bodied with medium carbonation that has a clean finish.

O - This is one of my favorite Oktoberfest beers to date and I look forward to drinking more of these this fall season.
