Who's been drinking this

Scent of apple juice, flavor is a bit sweet, wet hay, nice finish. A little more malty and less cereal than I think I was looking for, but maybe I'm just really out of practice with these fest biers.

I speak the language now! Richly malty amber lager, good mix of funk and malt sweetness. Definitely not crisp.
Strong, fruity funk immediately noticeable in the scent. Sweet and sharp rather than watery. A little more bitter, and frankly a little more character than I expected .
Sweet, roasted malt.

Nice strong funk to open. Body's a bit thin but flavor-wise it's there. And I appreciate a not-overtly-sweet Oktoberfest, for once.

Sweet mild-funky smell. Starting sweetness and a hard-to-pinpoint-sharpness exits quickly.
