3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beer pours a deep amber/brown indicative of a true-to-style German Oktoberfest in the same vein as Ayinger. Malt displays depth and a warm caramel note with the added bonus of a nice hops spice betraying the beers American craft origin. One of the best of this season’s American Okts.

Draught. Had this on at the Parlour in Sharpsburg with Ryan and radio star Kevin Battle after Sidney Crosby’s first game in the Burgh. Lots of malt, dough, bread, and sweetness in this beer. I like it. It has a litle more hop to it than lots that I have had, but to me, that’s a good thing. Nice full carb and good medium body. I like it.

slight malt and bread aroma. nothing usually catches my attention with oktoberfest beers but the hops are more lively in this than some. this may not be true to style though. very thin and light bodied. but decent anyway.
