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.
