Very smooth and accessible. An oak barrel Oktoberfest that goes down easy.

Sample at Hay Merchant. Orange-amber pour with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty with a bit of hops in the background. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a grainy malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Draught at the Alamo Drafthouse - S. Lamar, Austin, Oct. 20. Pours a deep orange with an average size foamy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruit, some sugary sweetness and a hint of chocolate. Flavour of caramel malt, sweet fruit and nuts -- a bit watery as well. Average bodied. It’s fine, not really my thing though.

A bit more herbatious and caramely with a feral quality. Malts are very interesting. The yeast eaters are complex to the point of confusion. Finish is clean without much linger.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
GABF 2011. Clear light amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of dry biscuity malts and a light oak tone, some rye. Flavor has not nearly enough oak. Too biscuity and a little bland. Off-dry and almost a little burnt tasting.
