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

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: nice orange hue with a completely clear body and a finger of frothy ivory foam. I like it.

Smell: sweet, caramelly malt aroma. Hints of nuttiness. Hops are practically nonexistent, though, and the overall effect is imbalanced.

Taste: again, sweet and caramelly malt with very little hop character and a low bitterness which only lightly appears at the end. The hops I do get are noble and earthy in character.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and concomitant creaminess. I like it!

Overall: a decent Oktoberfest, but I don't think I'd seek it out again.
