3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Deep Ellum First Anniversary Party.
The beer pours a brown color with a white head. The aroma is classic German lager, with some toffee and biscuit malt. The flavor is about what I expected. I get a lot of clean malt notes, as well as a lightest hint of grapes. There caramel and toffee notes are what comes through the strongest, as well as a hint of grass and earth. Medium carbonation and thin mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky amber color. The head is frothy and.thick and lasts a long time. The aroma is light smoke and a little spice making it somewhat bitter and sharp. The flavor is smoky and quite bitter. Only the finish has a little sweetness but is still overwhelmingly long and bitter. Not what you’d expect in an Oktoberfest so you maltheads stay away.
