Brew Review-Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest

This Munich-style lager has a medium body and amber appearance.  My pint from the tap was very carbonated with a lot of head, but the head dissipated very soon afterwards.  The aroma is both sweet and bread-like.  Flavor-wise, caramel is the most prominent with additional flavors of toffee, fruit (my guess some tart apple variety), butterscotch, maple syrup, earthy (the hops), and notes of some nut I couldn’t quite place.  The finish is crisp and bitter-sweet.  Not among the top Oktoberfest brews I have had, but it is very drinkable and reasonably priced.
