S-caramel malt, earthy, spice

T-biscuit, caramel, light spiciness, hint of toffee

O-good example of the style, just a sweetness I have a hard time appreciating in these beers

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Brownish amber color, off white head. Mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, malt and some earthy tones.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste was bitter and not much else, hints of some earthy notes, but had to distinguish exactly what.

Overall: Typical Oktoberfest in my opinion, nothing special, but not bad to drink.

This beer pours a cloudy dark golden color. A thin creamy white head forms in the pilsner glass that it came in. Some small very dispersed bubbles inside the glass indicates a slight carbonation. Aromas of caramel, malt, and sweetness. The first sip gives you flavors of caramel, malt, and a hint of maple. While the beer is crisp almost dry with a pleasant sweetness. A good drinking beer.

Off tap at the lodge itself this beer was a clear/amber color with two fingers worth of khaki-colored head. The retention was good as a collar and the lacing in thin bands. The aroma was sweet with lots of caramel, toasted malt, bread and some hints of nuts. The flavors were quite similar with a sweet, malty core buttressed by toasted grains, hazelnuts, caramelized sugars, a little butter (diaceytal) and a slightly grainy, dry finish. The grainy aftertaste lingered pleasantly on my tongue. The mouthfeel was creamy, the body medium and the carbonation perfect.
