Mixed six addition from Cost Plus. I've always wanted to try this but it takes a little nudge to get me into a $12 sixer.
Poured into a tulip a rust-tinged amber, 3/4" head without much retention. Leaves no lacing on the glass as it drinks down. Nose was quite interesting and tantalizing, kind of like a marzen, and has a honey element to it. Tastes of grain, malt, light hops, and is roasty. I thought the mouthfeel was outstanding; medium, lightly carbonated.
Overall, I'd like to sample this alongside Paulaner Oktoberfest and see how it fares. My brain is still trying to comprehend that this is not a lager with the similar flavor profiles and seemingly quick deterioration after pour.
Honestly, really like it, but don't understand the pricetag. I would love to try this on draught though, and will probably throw down for a sixer at some point.
