Pours a beautiful golden hue. Really pretty. Just enough head on it, laces the glass nicely. First hit is a wonderfully strong malt, seriously tastes exactly like dme smells, really nice. Warms to a mild spice/herb finish. Really great in my book

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint, 6oz bottle into a mug. The bottle has nice list of ingredients use including the malts and hops. The IBUs are listed at 29 but there is no ABV% or freshness date. Appearance: It has a deep slightly orange golden color with lots of carbonation and a good two and a half finger tall head. The head is creamy white and quickly settles to just a thin covering. This thin cap still makes lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma has a firm bready and nutty character with a spicy/floral noble hop presence. Taste/Palate: There is a good bit of deep bready and lightly roasted grain flavor with some good nutty notes and an excellent balance of spicy noble hopes. It finishes with mild hop bitterness and a clean biscuity dryness. The palate is spot on with a firm extremely drinkable medium body and lively carbonation. Notes: To me this is an outstanding example of the style that really captures that German Lager essence. Maybe it’s the malt, maybe it’s the hops or maybe that Free Range Coastal Water they use but it works. Prost!!!

dark orange pour. bright white head that disappears quickly. beautiful malt aroma on the nose that ends up following with orange. Great Mouth feel. not the best tasting beer ever, but it has a clean finish.

Crystal clear and golden with a white frothy head. Definitely smells and tastes like a German lager. Rich, sweet and medium bodied with subdued earthy hops that sink into the tongue to balance the malt sweetness. It has a crispness like a Kolsch, but more substantial body and a heavier flavor. Very well executed for the style.

I don’t understand the low rating, this stuff is flat out delicious. A very well done oktoberfest, with plenty of the characteristic spice notes that come with the style. Very malty, no bitterness, has a medium to low mouthfeel... I could drink this all the time.
