Bottle... Barely hazy, amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Big caramel nose. Malty-sweet, caramel flavor up front with a nice hop kick to follow. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes malty, but crisp. Quality brew. Pretty darn good Autumn lager!

I’ve never seen a pale lager pour like this one - deeper reddish-amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of nothing (seriously, I do not get 1 thing out of sniffing this beer). Tastes of toffee, caramel and some citrus. Thinner body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of shadey: Pours a clear copper amber with a large, frothy and lightly-lacing off-white head. Sweet toasty German caramel malty aroma is balanced with some faint noble hops and is fairly true to style. Body starts with a nice sweetness, then a strange seemingly full, yet airy palate before a bitingly bitter and lingering earthy finish. The name definitely caught me off-gaurd, but it’s a decent Oktoberfest bier.
