look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance : A amber color shines brilliantly as a steady stream of carbonation rises to the slightly off-white head.

Smell - Delicious malts are abundant in the rich aroma; toasted bread with biscuit undertones. It has a moderate sulfur character.

Taste - Is a pure malt pleasure that's toasty, but lightly and very well balanced.

Mouthful - Medium-bodied, it starts sweet and fuller but finishes light and refreshing with a good crispness to it.

Overall- Brewed perfectly for what it's meant for; sheer drinkability. Excellent. Can drink these all night. A solid brew, in a great season.

This is a world-class beer that's incredibly well done and as close to the epitome of an oktoberfest as possible. A malt-lover's dream, this is devoid of hop flavor and bitterness, letting the deep maltiness really shine.

Appearance: Copper. Very thin lace of head.
Smell: Vanilla, butter biscuits, light citrus.
Taste: Butter biscuits, light citrus.
Mouthfeel: Smooth carbonation.

I think this is excellent. The butter biscuit rules the day here in both smell and taste. It's a smooth drink, very refreshing; perhaps it's too easy of a drinker. I would definitely get this again.
