Notes/Commercial Description:
Originally brewed to celebrate the marriage of King Ludwig in 1810, this malty, amber lager is rich and smooth, with a great balance of malt and hops. Great for celebrating the crisp days of fall!

This Okey came to the table in the standard shaker pint glass, with a nice looking semi-hazy amber orange, hints of brown around the edges. Topped off with a small and quickly dying white head.

Rich, malty beer - started sweet but finished with a balanced spice and hop kick. Almost English style, with a bit of underlying woody resin.

A very good beer, this one could be session status, except there are too many other good beers to try.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the tap a deep copper-amber color with an off-white head which quickly faded. Light lacing to the end.

The smell was ripe fruit and a bit of caramel malt.

Taste was a good balance of fruity hops and malt.

Mouthfeel was rich and smooth with almost no carbonation.

This really hit the spot with my Cuban pork dinner on a crisp September evening. Enjoy it while you can.

A - Pours a brownish reddish hue with a creamy beige head the rises and then tucks itself into the corners of the glass.

S - I pick up a slight roasted note, along with an interesting fruitiness, I think its blueberry, oaty cereal like scents, some spice as well. Very nice and unique.

T - The oat plays a substantial part, roasted malts are kind of underwhelming but they are there, the fruitiness is not nearly as strong as it was in the nose but it is still evident. Really I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Really quite nice.

M - The body of the beer was a little thin, but overall it was above average. Could have used a little more weight on the palate.

D - The lack of mouthfeel on this really helps in this category, not to mention that the beer is pretty well balanced so that it doesnt fatigue your buds out. Definitely will order this again.
