look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
No freshness date; Poured in a pint glass.
A - One inch of off-white creamy head with good retention; Clear appearance with a slightly rustic amber color; Pretty good showing of thin lacing around the glass
S - Light aroma overall; Some sweet, sugary and bready malts with light herbal hop notes; A bit skunky as well
T - Lots of bready malts here with some moderate sweetness that increases as the beer warms; A bit nutty as well underneath the bready character with just a bit of toasted grains that come through more in the end of the taste; Hops are mostly herbal with a bit of grass and are more noticeable on the back end of the taste; Subtle alcohol does poke through now and again mid-taste
M - Moderate carbonation; Light to medium bodied with a fairly smooth mouthfeel; Finish is a bit on the dry side
O - While this is a solid German example of the style, this doesn't quite make it as one of my favorites since it struggles to distinguish itself from many others. That said, I still found this beer to be pretty enjoyable and drinkable, and a solid option to have during these cooler months of the year.

3.24/5 rDev -9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Pours translucent amber with 1/2 inch of off-white head that fades to a thin cap on top and leaves nice spotty lace.
Smell is somewhat muted and consists of grainy malt, Autumn spices and faint citrus.
Taste is of grains and malt with accents of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg with faint tart citrus on the finish.
Texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.
A decent, if not remarkable, effort. Easy drinking and sessionable.
