Pint on tap at the Bearden location. Clear light copper with a lasting film of cream. Mild nose of caramel malt and dry grass. Tastes of spicy toasted grain and a nice finish of earthy, dry grassy hop. Light-medium body is to the malty side as it should be, but well balanced by the finish and is an easy drinker.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Appearance is a dark copper with no head to speak of. Aroma is lightly smoky and malty with a faint hop presence. Reminds me of the smell of wet leaves. In the taste I find carrot cake, dusted with ground up cacao nibs. Mouthfeel is a bit sharp with a medium finish of bitterness and roasted malt lingering on the tongue.

draft. Very average German Oktoberfest, albeit this could have had more intense flavors. Still fresh, enjoyable, & hit the spot that day.
