Poured into a glass from a can.

A - Pours a clear straw, with good carbonation, forming a thin white head. Light lace on the glass.

S - Slightly sweet, cereal, and a hint of fruit aroma from the hops.

T - Very light flavor. A bit grainy and biscuity from the malts. Very low hop presence, only the slightest hint of fruitiness in the finish.

M - Not medium bodied, but heavier than thin. Very smooth and clean.

O - Awesome German lager! If I had the opportunity, I would drink several glasses of this and love every second! Having said that, this does not resemble a Marzen/Oktoberfest as the style suggests, as the color is wrong and this beer does not highlight the strong malt body and flavor that Oktoberfest is known for. Much more like a strong Helles. Whatever it is, I love it, but around $6-7 a can, my consumption will be limited. My rating of this beer is based more as a Helles rather than an Oktoberfest. Although the style characteristics are off, this is still a fantastic beer.

Looks like a good German example of what it is, a big frothy head and a bubbly golden liquid (and in an oversized mug due to this being the anniversary special I poured). Head drops slowly.
Smells nice of pilsner malts. Some graininess.
Plainly refreshing, some zest and mild bread. Somewhat sweet with a dry finish.
Stays carbonated well, feels crisp.
While lacking complex flavors, this Oktoberfest brew was just a highly drinkable brew as far as what you would expect if you were in Germany at the real deal. I kept forgetting this was 6% abv. Kudos for that. I wish i had a brat with this.
