This was kind of disappointing. It wasn't a bad beer, and it wasn't a bad Oktoberfest, but Oktoberfest is a pretty recognized festival in Milwaukee, and I would have hoped that Lakefront would have put their best effort into this. What they came out with instead was a fairly easy-to drink lager, albeit one that is slightly darker slightly maltier, with slightly more alcohol. It's certainly not something you would drink to celebrate the harvest, or an epic wedding (I did buy it while in Wisconsin for a wedding in early October, but it wasn't an epic wedding....so maybe this WAS a fitting beer to drink).
