Served in a pint glass.

APPEARANCE

This brew has the Oktoberfest look - caramel/rust colored and very translucent. There's just a little bit of bubbles coming up, collecting at a eggshell colored head. The head was about two fingers when first poured but disappated quickly to a sliver.

SMELL

Once again, very characteristic of an Oktoberfest. Tons of malt in the nose, along with a fair amount of banana and that crisp lager smell. There's some dark fruit character, such as plums or raisins. There's even a bit of clove in there too, sort of like other traditional German lagers. This is an excellent example of the style in the nose.

TASTE

After smelling this beer, the taste falls a bit short. Not that it is bad, but it's a little underwhelming. There is a lovely maltiness in this, which is to be expected. The banana is subtle, but still present. There's a good bit of caramel as well. That crisp lager taste doesn't appear to dominate this beer, and it drinks more like an ale. Overall, though, it tastes kind of watered down.

MOUTHFEEL

This has quite a bit of sweet body, but is in no way hard to drink. Like I said, it tastes watered down, but there is a decent amount of sweetness left. The carbonation is very minimal, which adds to the perceived body.

OVERALL

This is not my favorite example of the style. However, it is pretty tasty and is a very well-made beer. But overall, it's underwhelming and average at best. I love Three Floyds, but this one just doesn't rock my world. It was made under Bavarian Purity Law, which is slightly charming, but it doesn't make this beer any more interesting.

Cheers.
