Stopped by FFF in Munster, IN and picked up a few assorted bombers. Nice to obtain a fresh bottle of this Oktoberfest I've never sampled.
Pours a dark amber brew with a 3 finger semi creamy head. Quickly settles down to a thin film with no mentionable lacing.
Aroma is malty sweetness and the taste is the same.
A really smooth lager with a pretty abundant malt quality. Very similar to many of the American Oktoberfest beers I've sampled but a solid example and a pretty high quality beer in general as are all the FFF beers.
Overall a high rated beer in my opinion and something I would pick up every season.

Pours a translucent copper-amber color with a short-lived, a light caramel/eggshell colored head. The head disappears way to quickly. Bubbles constantly migrate from the bottom of the glass. Mouthfeel is slick and wet, with very little carbonation. So little, that I wonder if this bottle is old. Not much going on on the nose. The obligatory toffee, but on the very light side. Some notes of dark red fruit. Flavor is pretty lacking. Not bad, just not 3F. The flat flavor and the flat mouthfeel are certainly not complimentary. I'm so familiar with 3F, it's hard for me to believe that this bottle is not old.
