Where the previous year's version Oktoberfest from Sierra Nevada caught flack for being too hoppy, the 2016 edition leans toward tradition. It offers a golden color and distinctly German characteristics resulting from the use of German malts and hops. There is a reserved aroma, bready malts with a hint of citrus. The flavor of this beer balances grainy malts, hop bitterness, and sugar sweetness into a clean lager with a crisp finish. It tastes very much like traditional German Oktoberfest beers, yet it provides a freshness in the US that you can probably only get by traveling to Germany.

I enjoyed a liter of this beer last night with pizza and trivia. Solid octoberfest, a little hoppy for my personal taste it definitely has the Sierra Nevada style crafted into it which fans of Sierra will thoroughly enjoy!
