Bottle (from backlog). Caramel color without much aroma. Bready with some spices. Thin and not that interesting.

Appearance: Pours with a head that doesn’t last long. The color of the beer is just what you’d expect from the usual Oktoberfest -- perfectly like Autumn. Looks nice, but lacking overall. Smell: Meh. Sweet, caramel-like, and malty. Again, average. Taste/feel: I wonder if these other reviews got a skunked bottle or theirs just wasn’t fresh ... I’m getting an above average taste here. The first sip is INCREDIBLY bready tasting. Honestly, almost TOO much so. After that though, you get a super tasty malty Oktoberfest with a very nice mouthfeel. I haven’t had many Oktoberfests (Actually, I’ve only had this and Sam Adams’ up to this point), but I like this one quite a bit more than Sam’s. The carbonation and texture and the overall taste. I don’t know about you other guys, but I enjoy this one a good bit. Would love to try it on tap.
