A: semi-hazy, deep straw-golden yellow in color with a small white head. Bubbles running up the glass.
The appearance was a pale golden to yellow color with a light transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. A slim little white cap of a head started and dissipated immediately. There was barely any lacing.
The smell had some sweet grainy malts with some toast.
The taste was basically the same but somewhat breadier and leading into the aftertaste and finish.
The mouthfeel was light bodied with a very good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt light on my tongue.
Overall, its a decent Oktoberfest, yeah I could see myself having this again.

Had a pint at the brewery on October 27th, 2014

Appearance: Pale gold with white head

Aroma: Diacetyl dominates the aroma, low-no malt or hops.
Flavor: Surprisingly bitter for the style, with a thin body. Buttery flavor from beginning to end. Just can't get past the diacetyl level. My least favorite of the beers at this brewery.
