From the bottle, it pours a solid amber with a nice head which slowly diminishes to a robust ring. I get mostly bready malts in the nose, along with a sweetish caramel malty bread in the mouth, lightly bitter.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured out of a standard 330ml bottle.

Look - fairly carbonated with a solid one finger head.
Smell - mainly biscuits and toasted malts, with a slight fruity fragrance.
Taste - just as much bread in the taste as the smell, with a bit of bitterness to round out the finish.
Feel - light to medium bodied. Very refreshing at 5.9%.
Overall - nothing amazing, but not bad at all. good representation of the style, and very good value for the price.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

L: nice color and off white head that sticks around for a decent time.
S: clean malty aroma. Little hop smell and not overtly toasty, caramelly, or bready. Sweet.
T: malty and sweet. Bitter enough to not be cloying. Little noticeable hop character. Crisp and clean.
F: medium bodied, lightly carbonated, no alcohol warmth.
O: a good example of the style, although certainly not the best. Clean easy drinking. It's an all day drinking beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a gold/pale copper color, clean with a small white head.

Smell is a sweet grain aroma.

Taste is a bread and mild caramel flavor with a mild bitter finish.

Feel is a clean, maybe a little thin and watery for the style.

Overall a nice Oktoberfest. There are better and this one came in 11 oz bottles. But OK.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear golden colored lager with a medium sized white colored head. This is on the pale end of the spectrum for the style.

Smells malty and strongly of scorched sugars. Caramel and some fruitiness. Scent of roasted grain and hay. Lesser scents of wheat bran and saffron.

Starts out semi-dry. Taste of caramel and other scorched sugars and toasted grain. Mild bitterness is present that just about equals the sweetness. Taste of wheat bran. Very tame lager foe mass consumption.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall what an Oktoberfest beer should be. Light on the taste buds a not that heavy for mass consumption and the celebration of harvest time and the autumnal equinox.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A clear, dark golden/light amber, with a small amount of bubbles rising, and a finger of white foamy head that settles to a thin layer, and leaves some decent lacing. The aroma is skunky. First thing I smelled as soon as I cracked the 'brown' bottle. After a couple of minutes, that subsides, a bit, and I get a lot of grain/grassy notes, still some skunk, and it's really hard to pick up any other qualities. The flavor, is, grassy/grainy, some toasted white bread, and a smidge of caramel malt. Less of the skunk vibe in the flavor, which is good. The feel is full carbonation, medium-ish body, and dry. The flavor kind of makes up for the aroma, a bit, so not a total loss.
