Lakefront Oktoberfest Lager

This 5.8% ABV seasonal release is from the Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The beer pours a deep, but clear, copper in color. There is a medium head of off-white foam. The aroma is malty, toasted and roasted, caramel and toffee, a tad nutty, a hint of spice. The taste follows the aromas. It is slightly sweet, but with enough hops to control the sweetness, lightly bitter and grassy on the end. This makes a fairly solid Oktoberfest beer.
