Appearance - 3.75/5
A fairly nice light orange-brown. Fairly clear. About 1 finger of head when initially poured, then dissipates down to minimal hea presence (but still some). Can see a small amount of carbonation rising at average speed.

Smell - 3.4/5
An slightly hoppy malt character. A little bit of alcohol smell

Taste - 4.2/5
A very nice balance between sweet malts and fresh crisp lager taste. The malts are slightly fruity, slightly earthy, and moderately sweet. The lager taste is at first perhaps a little strange, but I think it's just that I'm not used to oktoberfest beers being this lager-y (even though this is more what an actual authentic oktoberfest is supposed to taste like). Once I get used to it, the taste is quite nice. I really love the balance between the sweet malts and lager taste.

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Medium to full-bodied, very crisp, even level of moderate carbonation throughout the sip. Truly a delight to the mouth.

Overall - 4/5
I love all things authentic, so knowing this is a quite authentic Oktoberfest beer earns some automatic points for me. I have come to really love the taste, and the mouthfeel is great as well. It would be nice it the aroma was a little stronger, but overall this is a great beer, and definitely one of the best oktoberfest beers I have tried.

Woo. It's been awhile. Lots of life changes, sorry to let you guys down.

Appearance : Pillowy, fluffy two fingered head atop a beautiful amber tint of a body, which is mostly transparent.

Aroma : some light wet earth, crisp chlorine, caramel and roasted malts. A slight metallic smell also accompanies it, to the point of me tasting a penny in my mouth when I smell it.

Flavor : a high hop presence with a quick nip of Maltiness. I taste nut, caramel, and alkaline. Some roasted caramel, a bit of clean copper, and ends with a high malt presence.

Mouthfeel : like any other beer really. Just clean and creamy.

Overall : ill pass on it next time. It's not bad but whatever, it's okay.

500ml bottle. 04/15. Pours a bright, golden amber colour with a frothy, off white head which reduced to a collar and left a trace of lacing. Pleasantly malty aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Mildly sweet with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Smooth, medium bodied and quite easy to drink. Decent enough but didn't leave me craving more.

A: crystal clear; amber colored; 1 finger off white head that receded to a thick cap; light lacing;

S: toast; earthy hops;

T: graham crackers; sweet malt at mid-palate; a touch of bitterness at the end, but it's almost unnoticeable;

M: medium bodied; creamy carbonation;

O: right on for the style;
