argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Big beige head atop clear light copper body. Aroma is unusual (which, in an Oktoberfest, is extraordinary) -- mildly sweet, malty, bready. Taste is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toasty. Clean, light-medium body. Pleasant beer, not at all what you generally find in the run-of-the-mill oktoberfest available in the States.

on tap-pours a thin white head and gold color. Aroma is light/medium malt-honey, faint spice hops. Taste is light/medium malt-honey, secondary earthy/spice-hops, some bite/copper. Hops is the after taste.
