A smooth caramel, toffee taste, that is followed by a toasted malted finish.

Taste Rating in Words: It's the beautiful color change of the leaves in the fall.

Poured into dimpled seidel. Fizzes, no head, faint lace. Medium amber color.

Nose: Sweet caramel malt bomb.

Similar taste, also a little nutty, even honey flavor.

Mouth is medium dry.

An overlooked example of the style, well balanced. Great example of the liquid bread end of the Oktoberfest family.

Poured into a beer mug. Light amber color with a thin head that recedes quickly without leaving lacing. Nose of bready malt and something sweet like toffee or caramel that is subtle. Definitely tastes better than it smells with spicy hops, beady malt, and a little toffee. Spicy hops leave a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, right on point for the style.
There are better Oktoberfests out there. This one got a little hop happy and deviated from what I expected. I finished it but am not going to be getting it again.
