pours a slight orangey golden color. decent head and solid retention. good lacing. smells like a malty macro. but balanced. i thought this wasn't going to be as good as it was. the taste is very balanced, the malt nice and the brew fairly filling. pretty much what i'd expect from a octoberfest offering. i guess i'd just like to see everything kicked up a little bit fuller. all in all a good option.
