The first two stores I tried to buy this from had sold out, was happy to find it at the third. Poured in to a stein.

A: Finger and a half of bubbly, dense head, amber/copper appearance with a decent lace throughout

S: Toasted caramel nose

T: Big doughy, malty taste, a little more than medium bodied, with warming spice in the aftertaste

O: Great beer, from start to finish, a prime example of the style.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A - Rich, creamy 2 finger khaki colored head that is somewhat slow to dissipate. Some noticeable sediment with a moderate carbonation. Brownish copper in color. 3.75/5
S - Malt, malt, and more malt with a hint of earthy hops. Caramel sweetness with a bit of white toast. 4.25/5
T - Malt forward. Caramel. Grainy. Floral hops. Toast. Honey. Every so slight spicy/peppery note. Just a touch of bitterness on the finish. 4.5/5
M - Medium body in the beginning and middle with a very dry finish. Leaves the mouth feeling very dry. Lingering bitterness. 4/5
O - Excellent flavors out of this Oktoberfest. Taste follows the nose nicely and more complex than most Oktoberfests that I have tried. 4.25/5

Very vibrant Oktoberfest. More flavor than I expected, it just popped. I got almost a fruity sweet vibe at first and then settled on a toffee and bready character. Pours a gasoline color, but very refreshing!

Nice copper color, with foamy light tan head.

Smells malty and bready.

Lots of malt flavor, with the right amount of hop bitterness. Clean, but bold. Drinks nice.
