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.

Beautiful orange color. Smells malty with a faint funk of BO (could I have gotten a dirty glass?). The taste is pretty well-balanced malt and hops, with a little more bitter on the finish than I prefer. Pretty good beer, but not best-in-class

Always a solid beer. Full of flavor. Packs a punch. Smells malty and delivers.
