3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). A new Oktoberfest as Bryan continues his lager train. Pours a faintly hazed copper hue, bright and deep reddish hue, a decent offwhite head sits atop, laces well and stays ok sized. Aromas are crisp malts, toast, bread, faint florals. Initial is light bodied, toffee and biscuits, toast with some faint florals, grass, spice. Mellow sweetness lingers, moves into the backend, toffee and toast, with a touch of hops, faint spice. Simple but tasty, crisp and quite palateable. Finish is lightly mellow sweet, touch of hops. Not bad
