That’s not to say that other Oktoberfests out there aren’t good; it’s just if you want to try some of the best, get Paulaner. Anyway, let’s hit my review notes.
Appearance: Perfectly clear amber-orange topped with smooth and creamy off-white head.
Smell: Caramel maltiness. The malt dominates the nose, not much in the way of hops.
Taste: Rich and malty… wheat/grain, grass; earthy. Light hops—very crisp and clean of the Noble variety. The "malty" has caramel, whole multi-grain bread, sweetness in a molasses kind of way (i.e., not too sweet, slightly bittersweet and thick).
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium-bodied. Creamy rich.
