Bottle poured into my Oktoberfest 1/2 marathon shaker pint.

A- A normal pour creates 2-fingers of khaki head. An initially clean, golden-orange body clouds nicely with a swirl of the yeast. Medium-light carbonation. Great head retention (1/2 finger or more) and thick bands of lace are even fluffy on the glass.

S- Classic hefeweizen. Banana and clove with hints of citrus and gum. Maybe a little "juicy fruit-like."

T- Solid again. Strong clove, lighter banana. Gum and citrus are lighter still. A little black pepper sneaks in.

M- Medium body. Creamy feel. Sips are through a significant, fluffy head.

O- One of the better American versions of the German style. Very flavorful while staying very refreshing. I'd buy a sixer of it next summer.
