Surly makes it quite clear that this Oktoberfest is their own interpretation of the style instead of a classic fest bier, and that’s a beautiful thing. The dark orange color is a bit lighter than the copper shade of most fest lagers. Aroma is perfect; maybe not strictly for an Oktoberfest, but for me. Spicy rye, floral and piney hops. Interestingly, flavor does seem more traditional. Grassy rye, biscuit malt, and mildly herbaceous, tea-like hops. Medium-bodied and crisp. Delicious.
