Rich toasted malt and caramel tasting. Very smooth beer that hits all of the right notes and is way above average. I could do several if I was in a marzen type of mood.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Smith pint glass. Moderate hand. Bottled 07/17/14.

A: Hazy, copper-amber body. 1 finger of coarse, off-white head. Average retention. Minimal lacing.

S: Roasted malt with an unusual peanut presence. Some hay. Bread. Indistinct fruit. Brown sugar. Light overall, but nice enough.

T: Round, moderately sweet malt and nuttiness to start. Faint corn. Slow ramping of bittering hops to a semi-dry finish. Lingering bread and noble-type hops in the aftertaste. Minimal alcohol presence.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium body for the style. Slightly prickly initially.

O: Average Oktoberfest with some decent malt notes. I'm good for a few of these, although I'd have to say it's a bit over-hopped.

Prost!
