COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

Deep, rich amber color.white head. Aroma is very malt bitter aroma like rye. Flavor is pretty balanced. A good barley beer. The sweetness is minimal, which is nice. The finish occasionally has that medicinal taste. Otherwise it’s ok.

Beer starts off with a slight bitterness but finishes pretty smooth. It seems to leave a slight yeasty after taste. Will drink again.

Aroma of sweet caramel, some bread. Nice deep orange color with a tan head...fades quickly. Sweet malt up front. Toasted caramel/toffee flavor. Bitterness is uneven, till the end and comes hard. Bready flavor throughout, a little off putting. Average.

Pours a copper color. Not a great head, better lacing. A little hazy. Eh, it’s okay on that part.

Aroma is very malty. Very toasty, very roasty. Caramel and maybe some roasted nuts.

Taste is pretty darn good. Sure, you’ve got your roasted malt, caramel and toffee, yeah yeah. It fits the style well, but hey, I’m also tasting some surprising tobacco flavor. It’s rich and smokey, and it’s very tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied. It’s somewhat bitter finish. There’s also some of that tobacco in the finish.

Overall, I like this a lot. Particularly because of the tobacco flavor. Yeah, that’s tobacco. Like Levi Garrett. But other than that, it would still be pretty solid without it. But yes, you should certainly try it. I would absolutely have it again.

12oz bottle pours a clear bright Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of spicy rye like caramel and toffee malt. Nice balance of fruity hops and caramel malt with some spicy yeast in the finish. Well balanced, flavorful, and drinkable.

Pours copper. Aroma is toast, honey cookies. Taste is caramel, toffee, toast. A wisp of hops. Bottom line - smooth, elegant, balanced lager.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of some grassy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of caramel, grassy hops, grain and spices. Finish is long and spicy. Nice malty brew.

Lightrider (344) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pour is a light brown. Aroma is of nuts and malts. Taste is bold and rounded very well. Finish is very clean for a dark beer.

bubbleflubber (2156) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours a clear copper-amber into the glass, with a light head that dissipates to trace wispy lacing. The nose is very multi with a touch of subtle grains. Flavors are of caramel, toffee, a burnt candy note, light bitters and a burnt toffee finish. The medium body and semi–zesty mouthfeel make for a decent Oktoberfest. On the lighter side of a harvest Vienna, it does enjoy decent quaffability, and provides a nice tribute to the pure German fest style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (1345) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Deep copper color with a small creamy beige head. Toasted malt nose with notes of caramel, cooked beets and toast. Flavor is more of the same with a hint of toasted nuts and brown sugar. Slightly metallic notes in midtaste. Cloying mouthfeel with a smooth spicy hop finish. Quite tasty and a worthy example of an American style Marzenbier.
