New for Oktoberfest 2013; a dry-hopped German pilsner

This one looks the part. It's a mildly hazed bright gold color with a head reaching one finger tall and staying there, and it's about the creamiest I've ever seen. It recedes very slowly and, ultimately, not much at all, while leaving chunky, creamy rings of lace plentifully on the sides of the glass.
The nose is initially quite grainy, but that backs down to allow lots of grassiness, a little spiciness, and a raw, green stem sort of note with some crackery dry, pale malts to balance. There's just a touch of some sweetness, almost "estery."
The flavor begins with an interesting sort of woody bitterness that's difficult to place. I suppose it could be an effect of the dry-hopping, or how it works with the overall profile. Regardless, it eases back and ultimately it's nicely malty but well-hopped as well, dry and crisp with a firm grassy, leafy bitterness. There's a bit of earthy dustiness in the middle.
It's bright, clean and crisp. The body is light, almost medium, with a good heft but not too heavy for the style. Carbonation is moderate and allows for a creamy smoothness that doesn't take away from the crispness. The finish is semi-dry and lingering.
