3.95/5  rDev +2.3%

A: Pours a clear deep amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted, caramel, and bready malts with a slightly stronger aroma of spicy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready, caramel, and toasted malts (in descending order of strength) with minimal amounts of sweetness present. That is followed by moderate flavors of spicy hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amount of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink and sessionable, definitely a nice example of the style and a beer that I could easily have over and over again - kind of reminds me of time spent at Oktoberfest in Munich in 2000.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer poured clear amber in color with a thin white head that quickly faded away leaving a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. A moderate to high amount of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles.
S: There are light aromas of bready and caramel malts in the nose along with some hints of spicy hops.
T: The overall taste is very balanced between some malty sweetness with notes of caramel in the initial taste followed by a subtle amount of bitterness in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a medium level of carbonation.
D: Drinking this beer is a breeze; it goes down very smoothly, which makes it very sessionable.

4.25/5  rDev +10.1%

Appearance: Dark amber with a hefty white head, plenty of retention.

Smell: Malts and mellow yeast.

Taste: Slightly sweet carmel malts, lager-like yeast flavor, slightly bitter finish with a fruity taste.

Mouthfeel: Moderately thick and carbonated.

Overall: This beer manages to be balanced and easy-drinking, while still layered and rich. I would drink this regularly.
