This year I had several pints of Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest and on draft it really did not do much for me. The bottle on the other hand was quite nice and well done. The 6% ABV beer was packaged on 07/09/15 and tasted fresh and lively. The beer is a collaboration with Brauhaus Riegele of Augsburg Germany and when compared to other bottled variants of Oktoberfests marketed as the same as served at the festival it fits in quite nicely. I have had several friend report off kegs in the market and I know the pints I had this year were boring and average, but the bottle is worth the time to explore especially if you are a fan of the style.
