A: Pours a relatively clear dark golden yellow to amber in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of malts with hints of caramel and toffee with some very light notes of earthy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of caramel, bready, and toasted malts with light hints of caramel and toffee sweetness. There is a light amount of earthy hop flavors but almost no bitterness is discernable.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable - sessionable due to the low ABV and smooth mouthfeel.

Bright Orange color beer, not much of a head.
Mild aroma.
Sweet and malty with almost no bitterness.
Very smooth. Creamy mouthfeel.
Extremely easy to drink.

This is a beer that just anyone would like. It is mild, but has good flavor.
Worth repeating how easy drinking this beer is.

An interesting take on an Oktoberfest. A little different because this one is an Ale.
Worth checking out!

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of rings of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are very light aromas of malts in the nose.
T: The taste is malty like the smell but has slightly stronger flavors of bready, caramel and toasted malts along with some hints of earthy hops. There is a slight amount of malty sweetness; no bitterness is detectable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Even though this beer is quite malty, it is still easy to drink and has nice smoothness in the mouthfeel.
