full flavored and full bodied so the flavor is malty with a bit of rum and raisin. not quite rum but something like it. juicy and smooth the beer is a bit slick and seems sweetly sticky. some vanilla and caramel like profile. Fest on the powerful side with smooth carbonation.

In addition to what you'd expect from a typical Marzen, this year's Oktoberfest has a little pumpkin pie spice aftertaste and a little more residual sweet. Perfect color. Great taste.

Drank from a bottle.
Nothing of major note on the smell. Tastes like a standard lager with some German malts. A little bready. Overall kind of meh. There better Oktoberfest beers out there.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with long lasting, foamy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of Noble hops and nutty, caramel malt. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is sour, salty, caramel and herbal hops. Finish is long and salty. It seams to me they were trying to brew Gose but put in too much caramel malt.
