Like most other Oktoberfests, the rich caramel malt dominates. There are hints of tart apple and pear, with some spice. No bitterness. feels a little heavy but still crisp and drinkable. Overall: One of the better Oktoberfests, somewhere between Sam Adams and Ayinger on the spectrum of ones I've had this year. In comparison, I'd call it a little drier and less sweet than the Sam Adams, but not quite as much spice as Ayinger.
