4.2/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving type - On tap at the restaurant

Appearance - Pours a dark-ish amber color, with moderate head retention.

Smell - Caramel malts and slight fruitiness. Little to no hop aroma.

Taste - Sweet, malty, and caramel-like. Very minimal hop character to it, which makes it different than some of the other Oktoberfests I've had (in a good way, in my opinion)

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, smooth, and satisfying. Nothing wrong here.

Drinkability - This borders between being a session beer, and something I'd just stick to having a couple of.

Overall, a very good offering, and now I'm looking even more forward to the Oktoberfest beer season because of it!

Classic copper color with an eclipsed head and an oddly potent, fruity fragrance that touches upon orange or perhaps Grand Marnier. Nice flush of malt sweetness with clean parameters and good balance. No lace to show for itself, but a nice drinker worth waiting for.
