650ml bottle. Wow, it's nice to have an Oktoberfest brew, when, ya know, the actual Oktoberfest is going on - jawohl!

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with three zaftig fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat fizzy off-white head, which leaves a bit of stringy and sudsy lace around the glass as it evenly retreats.

It smells of bready and biscuity caramel malt, a hint of earthy smokiness, some rustic picnic table-top nuts, and plain leafy, floral, and grassy noble hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy caramel malt, an ephemeral free-range ashiness, wet breakfast biscuits, an oily nuttiness, some mild pome fruity notes, and more understated herbal, weedy, and floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its palate-pinging frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing really getting in the way of a rocking good time here. It finishes trending dry, the sneaky hop character showing the most lingering moxie.

Overall - this comes off rather well in its attempt to emulate the real deal, with the biscuity malt, gentle off-setting bitterness, and just north of average alcohol content. Maybe I should have procured two of these, so that I could fill one of my dusty 1L steins, but I suppose I am just as happy with what I have left in front of me. Prost!

Nice pint to drink when it's pouring with rain on a cold November afternoon. Full flavour, sweet with hits of caramel but with a bitter finish. Very nice.
