My first Oktoberfest of the 2004 season, and if this is the worst one I have, then it'll be a very good Oktoberfest indeed. For those of you used to starting Oktoberfest off with a Spaten (like, for example, most of München), you might find this a bit smoother, and a lot more drinkable if you've had limited experience with Festbiers. It's less amber-colored than most, a lot closer in color to a standard lager, but it still has that malty texture, and it goes down oh so well. I can think of worse ways to wind down the last quarter of 2004. Prost!
