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.

On tap @ Moth.
Ruddy amber brew with some off-white head. Nose is big time malts with some earthy hops - bread, caramel, and some light smoke. Flavor has a good amount of sweetness but goes down smooth, especially for the ABV.

Nose is grassy first with the malts hiding behind with a little yeasty cider. Almost cider like. With malt and hops. Good balence of yeast. Higher hops make this more interesting. A good beer.
