Ruby-amber body, fizzy tan head. Smells of light malt, toasted grain, faint fruit esters. Taste is similar; warm malt, some light grain, toast, the fruitiness could be described as a touch of white grape juice. No trace of wood flavor. Kinda smooth body, probably aided by the oak aging, but only light-moderate in heaviness.
Happy to see the oak in a very diminished role. The base beer flavor remained light and appropriate but the feel felt smooth. Happily surprised.

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A - creamy off white head that is slow to dissipate. clear amber beer in color with high carbonation with bubble rising moderately quickly. 4.25/5

S - sweet toffee and malty. vanilla and oakiness come next. herbal hops. very interesting but also somewhat subdued. focus seems to be on the vanilla. 3.5/5

T - malty and toffee up front followed by vanilla and then oaky woodiness and somewhat boozy on the back end. vanilla finish. 3.5/5

M - lighter than expected. light to medium body. leaves mouth wet with no carbonation burn. 4/5

O - oak & vanilla overpower traditional malty sweetness of the oktoberfest style. good beer, just unusual per style and somewhat out of balance. 3.5/5
