2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Sheffields, Chicago
Amber color. A bit unfair to drink this after some IPA, but it seems to be too simple, to me, with an accent on cereals, dry and not even the body of the original Oktoberfest. Boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a clear copper color with a finger or so worth of white foam.
S: Initially I get a lot of lager yeast aromas along with some grassy hops. As the beer warms up a little bit, some sweet malt aromas come through. Fairly creamy with some caramel and toffee notes, and a mild spiced quality.
T: Fairly malt forward with notes of grassy and spicy hops. The malt character is bready with some sweet caramel flavors. A slightly earthy bitterness to this beer as well.
M: The body is medium with a smooth carbonation that is lively and moderately creamy.
D: A solid Oktoberfest from a solid brewery. I really enjoyed this lager.
