Westchesterco (951) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Poured from a can from total wine and more in mclean va it is a clear golden color with no head. The aroma is not noteworthy. The taste is a caramel with a bitter resonance that lingers on the palate

Clear golden color with a bit of an amber tint and an off white head. Color is much lighter than the norm for this style. Aroma is bready with toasted malt and caramel finishing with floral herbal hops. Smooth creamy feel in mouth. Caramel malty start with toffee notes finishing with herbal spicy hops. Flavor really improves as it warms.

The body has a beautiful orange amber colored body with just the slightest haze. From the aggressive pour I got a small creamy off white head. The head fades to thin covering that just hangs on to the end. On the glass it makes lots of slick spotty lace. Its aroma is very malty in a nutty sweet, bready way. There are also notes of sweet floral/spicy hops. I get a lot of bready and nutty maltiness throughout with mellow candy like sweetness. Hops add some floral spicy flavor, a little bitterness and a very slight sour note to the finish. It’s a good solid medium body with a smooth lightly carbonated mouth feel.

Bought a case of this a while back and was very disappointed as I’ve been with most offering by this brewery. Pours clear amber color with offwhite foamy head. Aroma kinda metallic biscut which reflected in the flavor. Sweet malt base with metallic burnt biscut finish. not a good Oktoberfest.

Amber pour, light tan head. Sweet and malty, not much else going on to be honest. Meh.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bronze body and sporting a lush, 2 1/2" thick head. Strong pilsen nose with a sharp, European/German hoppiness that dominates the aroma. Soft grains in the body with a some dank and crisp German hops. Dank, twangy pellet hop and tannic malt finish. Meh.
