Smoked malt is subtly incorporated and lends no harshness. Munich malt imparts an ideal level of sweetness. Brilliantly balanced.

One of the most drinkable smoked lagers out there. I don't pick up any Hallertau hops, but the one-two punch of Munich malt and smoked malt is effective and elevates this above most Marzenbiere.

B- / WORTHY

Live Oak Smoaktoberfest

Look:
Pale copper/amber color with bright white head and nearly brilliant clarity. Poor head retention with a very small bubble texture.

Aroma:
A nice melding of Munich malt breadlines and slight caramel with beechwood smoke. Low level of noble hop aroma. Clean yeast character.

Taste:
Beechwood up front with some subtle bread crust notes following behind. Low level of noble hop flavors and bitterness hit you last but provide a nice balance to the beer.

Feel:
Medium bodied with some residual sweetness but not sweet by any means. Medium-low level of carbonation.

Overall:
It’s a smoked festbier. Well made but nothing mind-blowing
