This outta put me in the mood for O-fest. Hangar 24's version comes with a label that pictures a zepplin and an O-fest gathering. 12 ounces here I come. On to the beer:

This takes on a color that's a darker shade of orange with a yellow hue. The head sits an inch thick on top, retains well, and leaves enough splashes of thick lace around. Bring on the pretzels, as the aroma is taking me to Bavaria. Malty to little surprise, a hint of baking cocoa, shades of grass, ummm, it's malty. And good.

So this is why those one liter steins are so popular. This isn't German, but Hangar 24 is making a good run at this style. Toasted malts and caramel lead the way, while drizzles of hops ar noted but stay in the background. Hints of orange arise. Impressing even more is the texture, which is medium bodied and incredibly smooth. It drinks easy too.

Festive beer. This will not only get your drink on, but your appetite as well. Now where's the sauerkraut and mustard?

Picked up a 4-pack of bottles from Olive Tree Market here in Ocean Beach for $8. and poured them into a Hess branded pint glass.

A: Pours a nice head that dissipates after a few sips leaving good lacing in its tracks. Pours fairly clean but darker than I expected - burnt orange.

S: Big time lager malt, toasted grains, sweet carmel nougat, and faint earthy hop.

T: On point with the nose and style - tastes like a well done small batch German lager. Nothing over the top or out of the ordinary here...but a really well done German style lager.

M: Lighter side of medium bodied, crisp and clean, but could really benefit with a little more carbonation.

Really well done and on point with the style. Tweak a few things and this could be an all time German style lager. I would definitely drink again!
