I thoroughly enjoy a good Octoberfest beer. Many Octoberfest beer I have tried lately have been a disappointment. A vigorous pour produced a half finger head with dismal results. The color of the beer is SRM 4 a pale gold. The clarity of the beer is clear, with a lot of carbonation bubbles.

The traditional aromas in a Marzen beer are present. Caramel, lightly toasted malt, crackers, floral, bready, yeast, and a touch of the earth are the aroma of the beer.

The flavors of the beer are caramel, lightly toasted malt, crackers, floral, earth, bread and a touch of earth.

The mouthfeel of the beer is carbonated and crisp. The body of the beer is medium, a medium carbonation and a medium-light finish.

The beer has the traditional flavors of an Octoberfest. The beer is just average for its style.

I love Oktoberfest beers. I feel this one is very good. Taste is a slightly on the darker, denser side. Possibly lagerish. Nice gold color. Smells of hearty, toasted bread, somewhat sweet with a finish of spice. This is one of the better Oktoberfest class beers in my opinion.

Had at BJ's Oktoberfest dinner 2017 so took no notes. I enjoyed it though.
