3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice domestic Oktoberfest-style lager. Deep amber color, light aromas, mainly caramel. Outstanding body here, exquisite balance between being not quite creamy and not quite fizzy, just perfect. Bready, caramely flavors are understated. Could be consumed for many hours on end, I think, as is fitting per the style.

Nice deep copper pour with a lot of malt aroma. Flavor backs it up with nuts, caramel and bread all interwoven on a nice hop backbone. A good festbier.
