Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest

Leinenkugel's has been brewing in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin since 1867.  They are now owned by Miller.   This is Leinie's take on the German-style Marzen beer. 

The beer pours copper colored with a short head of white to off-white foam.  The aroma is somewhat sweet, with lots of malt, a bit of caramel and some fruitiness.  The taste is slightly sweet with a firm malt background, toasted and caramel, but with an astringent, moderately bitter hop finish.  Fairly decent, but not great as Oktoberfests go; overall rating: "Meh."
