Good for style. Mire malt rye than typical. Bland smell and boring color. Ok.

I want to love this beer but something is missing that I can't put my finger on. The body is slightly lighter than I expect from this style

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Treated as an Oktoberfest, this was poured into a mug (correct use of glassware).
The appearance was a dark hazy burnt amber color with a sustaining white foamy dissipating little head. Messy lacing running here and there.
The aroma flows between the sweet and spicy rye malts to the creative use of nutty yet biscuit sweet breadiness of the entirety of it all. Subtle sweet grassiness underneath.
The flavor brings it all together nicely. Nice semi-sweet/lightly spiced flowing rye into the aftertaste and then riding fairly quick into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionable feel to it. Carbonation seems to ride fairly nice.
Overall, Oktoberfest - yes, definitely and with a nice creative ingenuity by Great Divide, this is definitely worthy to come back to.
