On tap at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati

This is my first self-titled Bavarian-style pale ale. The website explains that the use of German noble hops makes it Bavarian-style, along with pilsner and munich malts.
As a pale ale, it's not my favorite, but it's still good. Some light hoppiness as far as PAs go, but flavorful. Worth a try if you want something different.

Poured into a tulip glass as a light, hazy, amber colour with little to no head. White.
Aromas of fresh bread and light citrus fruits.
Fresh bread taste, mild Indian spices and some mild citrus.
Refreshing, dry feel.
Not a bad quaff.

Appearance - a peach-tinted straw color, a thick finger of rocky pocked head, very sticky lace.

Aroma - grain, light lemon and papaya.

Taste - crackery grain, light citrus and a pleasant hoppy bite. Dry, easy finish, slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel - refreshing, light to medium body, touch slick.

Overall - good session beer, would enjoy in spring/summer. A welcome recovery beer after a round of Punishment.
