3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear copper color with a white head. Sweetness and roasted malt aroma. Fairly dry with a caramel malt and husk flavor that seems a little stronger than you’d expect in a traditional Oktoberfest. Light and balanced hop bitterness in the finish and a very nice aftertaste that’s more reminiscent of Oktoberfest. Not exactly to the Geman style for this beer, but a tasty beer none the less.

Pours a beautiful autumn rust orange. Head was minimal, but fine bubbles and persistent. Aroma is light but malty in character. Flavor is malty sweet with a spicy edge. Body is a little on the heavy side, with a slick feel to it.
