Bier from a can, keep it kalt!
A: Pours a bright copper, with a 2 finger head
S: Smells like a marzen, though less sweet. A little spicy hops and rye bread. The hops beckon.
T: The nose is toasty rye bread, followed by a little honey, some earthy/herbal hops, and then more grain. Nice combination of bitterness and rye, and both linger. I get that its a lager from the taste, but its a strange one.
M: medium, carbonation is okay.
Overall: I like it. As it says on the can, it isn't intended to be a classic Ofest beer. Nonetheless, it is close in some intriguing ways, and it delivers on the rye, which is always appreciated. In the right mood and on the right day, I find this beer to be awesome. Other days, its an oddball, but one I appreciate. This year like every year, its gone too soon.
