look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This pours nice crystal clear ruby read, leaving a little foam ring with my slow pour.

Tastes a bit spicey, tawny, little hop - a good marzen balance.

Moutfeel is a bit thin, not bad though.

Finish is nice and creamy (after the fizz of the mouthfeel starts going down, it turns into a creamy pillow - very nice!). And then it leaves a slightly sweet clean taste.

This is an easy to find brew worth trying. Sometimes you can find it cheap enough to grab a case for a party - that would be much better than a macro!

A - Crystal clear copper body with some orange highlights...served to me with just a spotty cap (I'm not holding that against the beer)...the cap slowly faded away into a ring...left some lacing

S - Not as sweet as I was expecting...some toasted malts

T - I always forget how almost one-dimensional Oktoberfests are...initial sweetness up front with some caramel and toffee flavors...a light biscuit flavor follows in the middle...there is a faint hop bite at the end...I was hoping for a little more there...I'm also getting some metallic notes but it isn't all the time

M - Medium bodied bordering on light...a tad watery

D - I want to start getting into Oktoberfest beers since it is that time of the year...this was a decent one to start with...it didn't blow my mind but I could have had another one
