The brewer said that this was more of an octoberfest/maerzen style. Didnt taste like it was 6.1%. Lots of munich malt flavors and slight european hop aromas. Not too special but very drinkable and smooth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light fruity malt aroma, little hops. Copper red-brown clear with small off-white head. Medium watery body with light-medium, smooth carbonation. Sweet malt start with no bitter or acidity. Finish is sweet with nutty bitterness. After is sweet, but not overpowering. Alcohol, malt is nicely balanced in flavor with light bitterness, though very last of the finish/after is kind of sour.
