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

Bottle. Pour is lively with carbonation, but that may have just been opening it 2 minutes after lugging it down the block. Color is a perfectly clear deep orangish red color with a fair amount of carbonation bubbles working their way through the beer. Flavor is mild, very soft on the palate with just a hint of caramel and roast. Finishes crisp and clean with that herbal German hop finish. Light bodied. This is a delicious beer for the style, goes down a little too easy. Would drink again.

Pours with a frothy head with good retention. Bright amber hue that shows very well to the light. Aromas of doughy bread and herbal hops. Medium body laying down a slick and crisp mouth feel. Toasted malt and soft herbal hop runs across the palate. Chewy with a hit of caramel in the middle. The sweet maltiness with nutty toasted grain dominates this extremely tasty brew. Herbal hops are noticeable with an ample bitterness and long lingering delicious , semi-dry, faint toasted grain finish. My new favorite for the style.

12 ounce bottle. Mid brown with a beige layer of foam. A holiday spice aroma with some earth and rich malts. Lager yeast. The flavor begins with all of the above. I taste figs and tangerine with bready malts and yeast. Light spices.

Fatehunter (2213) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is lots of grain, hay and earth. Taste has a malty sweet, but balanced bitter. Fresh bread. Texture is thicker.

Pours a medium amber with two finger head. Smells of light malt and a touch of wood. Flavors of malt, a little wood, and a touch of fruit.

A bold wonderfully smooth Oktoberfest style with a slight honey finish. Something good to sit down next to the campfire with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Aroma of caramel and oak. Flavors of caramel, vanilla, oak and maybe even a bit of cinnamon. Lots of good flavors, but, as other commentors have noted, is a bit watery, mineral on the palate. Otherwise excellent.
