3.23/5 rDev -16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
bottle with 08/09 as bottling date, poured into spaten becker.
A - a darker amber colour with a head bigger than two fingers, which falls down to a good layer in about a minute. the body is completely clear.
S - nice subdued hoppyness. there isnt much to the nose but the caramel malts and hops blend together pretty well, slight pinch of spice behind it all. the one definitive good thing about the nose is that it is strong even when cold.
T - well, this is quite disappointing. the taste is mostly a bland hop bitterness without any really good malt body at all. this really doesnt taste notably like an Oktoberfestbier. the initial is mostly the noble hops, with a pinch of musty yeast. finish is the same as the initial, maybe with a bit more bitterness. the aftertaste is a light malty flavour.
MF&D - a light body that is coupled with ample carbonation to make a pseudo-medium. the main problem with the drinkablility is that the taste is off from the style. the brew is still good in its own right, but not something I would actively seek out.
