An Oktoberfest in its classic form. Traditional color. Crisp clean taste and finish. To me simply best in class

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short beige colored head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose along with some hints of cracker malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out rather malty with lots of flavors of toasted malts with an ever so slight amount of sweetness but this is mostly balanced off by the underlying hops, which contribute a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer had a good balance between the malts and hops but seemed to be a little lighter in body compared to other Oktoberfest biers.
