Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
The beer has a fabulous appearance. Clear and orange with a towering head after an aggressive pour. Head retention is lasting and there’s plenty of lacing to be found on the pint glass. The aroma is subtle, bordering on weak. Non-offensive, but quite mild. The taste is superb. I consumed half of the 64 oz. growler, and could’ve easily had more. Really smooth and easy drinking, with a simple and delicious malt presence. Hints of nuts, and just ever so slightly sweet. A fabulous example of an Oktoberfest, I definitely recommend this.

Not too much to this oktober. Decent color and good head but a little watery and not enough malt for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Pours a rich amber with a bare half inch of foam. The aroma is caramel in juxtaposition with some light citrus and hay. The taste is a fair amount of caramel sweetness and some lightly toasted graininess in the background. The mouthfeel was rather full, and kind of felt as though they had half dissolved lumps of jelly in the beer, slick and a bit flabby. Not bad, but half a pint was enough.
RE-RATE - much better this year, toned back the mouthfeel, making it drier and moreish.
