I did not plan on this one sticking around for Oktoberfest, but the early ones that I drank mid-Sept. were quite interesting with Sorachi Ace intensity -- not so much lemony as marketed, but more like juniper berry.  After another month of conditioning, that bitterness has mellowed significantly leaving me with a respectable pale ale.
