Draft pour into pint glass at Town Tavern, Duryea.

Easily the best American Okto I've had. Pours a lovely maroon with standard 1 finger head. It's perfectly balanced with no overwhelming characteristics.
It's hopped just right keeping the caramel in check, but certainly you wouldn't say this is hoppy. Great Lakes does their approachable beers so well, and this is another winner.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: a nice amber color with an unusually nice clarity. A finger of a tannish head that retains very well

Smell: strong malts, slight bitter hops. Slight fruitiness

Taste: starts off with a subtle fruitiness, and rich caramel malts. Stays pretty malt strong but with a nice small dose of hops for balance

Mouthfeel: slightly creamy and medium bodied. Strong clean feel but some taste left over.

Overall: I had all but given up on oktoberfest beers but gave this one a shot just for the respect I have for the brewery. This one gives me everything I want in an Oktoberfest and works well on a way too cold summer day
