330 ml bottle into dimpled mug, best before 5/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of bread, toast, cracker, honey, pear, apple, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, yeast ester, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of bread, toast, cracker, pear, apple, honey, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of bread, toast, cracker, pear, apple, honey, light caramel, light pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of malt and yeast ester flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Oktoberfest style. All around great balance and robustness of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Very sneaky beer. Low on up front flavor but nice mouthfeel and a lingering bready malt flavor makes up for it. Not as heavy as the regular ofest. Light straw color looks and behaves like budwieser in the glass only with better lacing. Compare it to hoffbrau ofest if you can't find this one. Worth a try and I will buy it again. This one will be in the late sept through November beer rotation at the uniobrew household as long as I can find it! And the 6% abv is well hidden with a mild sessionable flavor...hence the sneaky tag being hung on this one.
