Great Lakes Oktoberfest

Round 2 with an Oktoberfest brings us back to Cleveland and the Great Lakes Brewing Company.

This marzan style beer is close to the top of the field when it comes to the Oktoberfest brews. Maybe I am a bit biased, but Great Lakes brews almost all of their beers exceptionally well, and this one gave me the same impression.

Pours a nice light orange with an off white head. A nice mild spicy and earthy smell with caramel subtlety. The caramel becomes more apparent in the tasting. A very balanced combination of malts and hops. A very drinkable Oktoberfest and you could easily have more than a few without much thought.
