2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of slightly sweet bready grain and German yeast. Taste follows, light and easy, a weak Oktoberfest in my opinion.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Arrived in a tall, slender mug with a clear, copper-toned body topped off with a finger of white foam maintained by a constant, steady stream of fine carbonation.
Smell: Sweetish, predominately bready nose of German malts. Slight hint of light caramel. Mild notes of spicy, earthy hops.
Taste: Opens with a notably sweet taste of sugar-encrusted, toasted bread crusts. Additional hint of caramel. Very small hint of grain. Clear lager yeastiness. Lightly spicy hop presence with a small measure of imparted bitterness. Bready, sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel overall.
Drinkability: Always a good choice at the 5. A pleasant beer that drinks very (sometimes a bit too) easily and pairs with a wide range of foods.

I rated this one before I saw the reviews. Frankly, I’m surprised that this beer scored as low as it did. I think this is a fine Marzen/Munich style beer. It is gold-amber in color and only slightly hazy. Excellent lace was left on the glass.
The aroma is mild--very low hop with only a hint of malted barley.
What impressed the most was the mouthfeel. This is a soft beer with a generous dose of fine good-champagne bubbles. Absolutely delightful on the tongue. The beer flavor is more typical of the style.
