4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
BBD 12/4/14. Clear amber pour with a beautiful dark ruby cast. Normal head and retention, excellent lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel hints over a faint pear like citric note. Almost medium body with a distinct creamy texture. Heavier than most Oktoberfests, which is a plus. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescence throughout. The wonderful flavor profile is intense, complex and well balanced. It begins with a burst of biscuit against a caramel backbone that effervesces into a mild bitterness in the middle. The bitterness is herbal in nature (with a bit of rind), gives the tongue a nice tart pucker, then releases into pear notes. The finish is clean and leaves you with a mild bitterness over a faint biscuit sweetness that is somewhat dry. One of best!
