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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

Pours a hazy golden orange with nice amount of fluffy white head.

Citrus and white pepper in the nose with a touch of bread.

Nice bready characters and a good dose of noble hops. There is a subtle citrus note here. Nice Bavarian yeast character that leans somewhat toward wheat without overpowering the overall beer. Somewhat a pale ale but spicier and with more zest than it's American cousins.

Nothing wrong with this but nothing special.

A - Pours a deep golden with a one finger white head. Leaves sticky lacing throughout the glass.

S - Then aroma is of citrus fruit and subtle pine with some notes of fresh baked bread.

T - Taste follows suit of the aroma. Incredible lingering finish. Excellent balance between the noble hops and munich and pilsner malt.

M - Near perfect mouthfeel with its medium body and balanced carbonation.

O - My first go at a Bavarian Pale Ale. I thoroughly enjoyed Christian Moerlein's version and will have again. Another excellent brew out of Cincy.
