As I soon as I spied this on the shelves in a local stop, I thought I had to have it immediately as I had been very impressed with the same brewery's other selections. The golden ale poured seemingly well, but the comparisons to the other ales ended shortly after that. The nose on the ale reminded me of a bitter- sweet mass produced lager from Holland, which many people mistake for German. The first taste confirmed it was a mix of ale and lager tastes that made me want to retreat to the IPA's and Stouts in my fridge. I thought that maybe I got either a bad bottle or that it was another attempt to cash in on the Oktoberfest theme in the American market.
