Thanks to @TongoRad for this one. Poured into shaker pint glass. Poured a nice caramel-y yellow color, with an inch of white head that had good retention and light lacing.

The aroma was on the sweet side of the malt scale, with some earthy hops in the background. On the tongue, the beer was pretty similar, lightly sweet malts dominated, with a bit of an earthy hop tang towards the back of the palate.

The body was smooth, even and full, but with no heaviness. Drinkability was good, as is typical for the style.Overall, a very nice take on the style, one worth tryingshould you get the chance.

Amber color with minimal head with poor retention. Faint aroma of bready malts and a caramel sweetness that comes through more in the flavor than the aroma. Easy to drink several in one sitting. Not a bad Oktoberfest by any means but it was a little too light bodied for me.
