COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich malty reddish lager shows off a slightly sweet complex depth from the interplay of Munich, Honey, and Varamel malts balanced with a mild bitterness and delicate spiciness from German Opal and Select hops.

"fresh on tap at Buckbean. pours a deep orange with think lasting head. very malty aroma. doesn’t quite fit the style to a tee (the caramel and honey are far too pleasant) but it’s ends up being quite tasty if not textbook. "

Pours an orange/yellow. First sip is very light but then the malt takes over until the end when a dash of bitterness shows.

One of my favorite Buckbean beers , it is a seasonal , but I would recommend they consider making it a regular year round beer . I know a lot of people think the same.

Draft @ the brewery. Pours a clear, bright golden-orange color; lightly yellowed head with solid lacing. Light creaminess, vanilla, and wet cereal / malts in the aroma; soft. Medium mouthfeel: pleasant, highly drinkable texture in the mouth; oranges, candy sugar, toasty cereal grains; a crisp, solid, filled-out Oktoberfest rendition; nicely done. Medium finis: oranges, mineral bitterness, and toasted malts lingering.
