I had this on-tap in a Perfect Pint at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance. medium golden hue with no haze and a strong effervescence. A finger of creamy ivory foam leaves a nice lace. Don't know how much of this is due to the glass, but it's a fine-looking beer.

Smell: sweet and toasty aroma; it's a bit low-intensity, but nice.

Taste: toasty, bready and a little bit biscuity; quite appropriate for the style and very tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a rich creaminess. Yes!

Overall: a quite nice Oktoberfest, indeed!
