One of the best examples of the style I have had. Bready, fresh, and malty. I could definitely do a six of these.

Pours copper orange with perfect clarity and some lager bubbles wafting up to the top. Brilliant beer. Shines with fiery and golden hues. Creamy head of foam that lasts. Sweet malty nose. A bit of depth a drizzle of honey. Noble hops give the faint scent of fresh hay. Sweet biscuit. Taste is simply lovely. Smooth, crisp , sweet malt. Tantalizing with a faint bi t of honey. Small hop bit ion the back end. Perfect dryness and a light graham cracker. Faint grass in the last moments and this one is fantastic!

This was a ver nice, deep amber pour with a 1/2 finger of white head. I sensed a bit of cariander and lemon? on the nose. It was somewhat malt forward, but very pleasing to the taste. Nice balance. Medium on the mothfeel and a good carbonation throughout.., loving me some Great Lakes. Always consistently strong. Oktoberfest is not an exception.
