Had this at a bar with my lunch- the first time I paid attention to details on a draft beer. I did not see the pour, but the glass delivered to the table had a small head over a lovely golden brown brew. The smell wasn't powerful (but then, it's hard to smell the beer when there's lots of good food at the table), but it was good. I really liked the taste, there was a sharp note of spice right at first, that mellowed quickly. It felt lighter on my tongue than other Octoberfest beers I've had. Overall it was a very good accompaniment to my beer-battered fish sandwich and fries.

Oktoberfest brewed by Revolution Brewing, with an ABV of 5.70% This Oktoberfest pours out a nice deep golden amber color with a small white head. There is also some nice spotty lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with grains , malts and Carmel sweetness. You do pick up on some mild hop bitterness in the smell of this Oktoberfest. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with a bitter sweet grains , malts, and hops. This is a nice bold Oktoberfest brew. The body of this brew is a solid medium. There is a lot going on in this Oktoberfest. This brew goes nice with the season. There is nothing overpowering about Oktoberfest brewed Revolution Brewing, it has a super nice balance to it. This is what an Oktoberfest should be, nice color, great flavors, and good drinking. The mouth feel Oktoberfest is Bold, Rich, Smooth, Clean, and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving this Oktoberfest a 4.50 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to.Revolution Brewing, did a real nice job with this Oktoberfest brew.

Pours a copper color with verry little head. Nice crisp leveraged feel. Smell is toasty bread. Taste is sweet caramel with light bitterness on finish. Nice festbier.

Served from a 12 oz can. Not a bad Oktoberfest. It was a bit on the sweet side - almost cloying, but not quite. It's definitely worth trying, if you're into the style.
