3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a mostly clear, golden-copper colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted, grainy, somewhat bready caramels with a light sweetness. A light, clean, floral and grassy hopping with a bit of a fruitiness. Flavor is similar. Clean, grainy, lightly sweetened bready caramels with a decent floral and grassy hopping. A light toastiness as this finishes dry with a moderate bitterness that seems a touch high before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body with a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. Crisp and clean with a toasty, lightly sweetened, grainy caramel malt backing and a somewhat bitter, floral and grassy hopping. Not bad.

Half liter bottle - nose is caramel and yard weeds. Alsmost crisp. Hoppier than I expect from the style. Something akin to pepper in the finish. Interesting.
