Tap (Bruuveri, Helsinki) (5+:4:5:4:11=2.9)
Sticky mashy aroma. Rich orange, keggy head. Slightly metallic taste. Sweet and smooth. Does have a fairly german feel to it, but is thicker, fuller, and heavier than a real oktoberfest marzen. Then again, this is an ale, so a different type of beer. Dry peppery hop finish.
