Clear and bright coppery orange with a slim yet dense little capping of ivory foam. Spotty and very drippy lacing.
Aroma is light to medium in the nose with a slight nutty, bready sweetness with a edging of toast, apple, and honey.
Nice bold taster with a real stick of malt to it. It grows quickly as it slides down with ease creating a welcome slickness of sweet nutty bread, a bit of toasted grain behind it and hint to some heavier roast ghostly wafting about. Perhaps a tint to some coffee as it gets darker in character as builds into the finish with a light touch to some hops. Subtle with a very nice complexity to it long giving taste.
Body is medium with a hugely smooth malty creamy slickness with just a pinch of eager carbonation on the palate and has one very nice finish with a gradula growrth to some darker character.
A bonified exceptional drinker of an O-fest by the craft crazy awesome folks at Great Lakes. Many a mugs of this can be easily handled.

Great Lakes Oktoberfest pours a crystal clear glowing amber with hints of orange. Large carbonation bubbles rise to the two finger head that formed on the pour. The head fell to a thick creamy cap and left some lacing on it's way down. Leaves nice drink lines after each sip.
The aroma come forward with large amounts of Munich malt and lesser amounts of toasted grains. The Munich comes across chewy with a touch of caramel and a slight earthiness.
This is a glass full of malt. Munich malt. Starts off with a chewy nuttiness and leads effortlessly, mid-palate, to an earhtiness. A slightly sweet grain huskiness comes through on the swallow making this an enjoyable Oktoberfest.
The body on this octoberfest is medium with a silky smooth creamy mouthfeel. Lazy carbonation lets this beer glide through the mouth.
Lives up to the status of an octoberfest in that its easy enough to put away pint after pint.
Great Lakes Oktoberfest hits the spot on a crisp fall evening like tonight. One of the great American breweries comes along with another great American German Style beer. If that makes sense to anyone.
