look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This beer has a lovely copper color. It is not as dark as a lot of American Octoberfest beers. It does not look heavy or dense.

The smell is very dry. it is not overpowering at all. it smells like a traditional Marzen style homebrew beer, not sweet.

The taste is very dry. the malts come through in a clean pleasant way. low hop profile allows for the malty, but not sweet malt flavor. It has the dry taste that I get from saisons. I would love to know the type of yeast that they use.

Mouthfeel is light, making this an easily drinkable beer.

Overall I really like this beer. It is easy to drink and it is not sweet at all. I am not a fan of sweet beers, and find this to be a welcome relief to many of the sweet Octoberfest beers I encounter.

Serving type: on-tap
