Slightly hazy, amber-orange with a short, yellowed head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can into dimpled mug, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and solid balance of dark/bready malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. A fair bit of yeast fruitiness, but it isn’t overpowering. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice oktoberfest style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
