3.48/5 rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Nice frothy 1 finger head fades fairly quickly light lacing, very clear amber orange copper color.
Nose light grainy toasty malts, light Munich like reddish malts with light lager crispness and hint lager fruit, light grassy leafy noble hops,
Taste dry and bready, cracker, biscuit, grainy, etc, light Munich reddish malt with hint of caramel like, toasty. Light lager crispness. Some grassy fruity hops, noble variety but earthier and more robust and bitter than I expected. Finish is dry as throughout with fairly bitter and dry bready slight lager crispness.
Mouth is med to lighter bodied, decent carb.
Overall eh, a bit too much cracker bready malts and toastiness, no decoction layered softness I would have wanted, a bit too bitter and earthy, but nothing really wrong, just not what I like in my German Oktoberfest beers, and not what I've come to expect of the top notch lagers from Jack's Abby.

Poured from a .5liter bottle into a duvel glass.
A: pours a slightly orange copper with a finger and a half of creamy slightly off white head that sticks around before dissapating into a film.... Some nice spots of lacing.
S: malty wheatness, grassy/floraly hops, lightly toasted grain/bread, yeast, caramel.
T: much like the nose, slight caramel malt sweetness, with a coppery wheatness.... Lightly toasted grain.... Yeast.... Light grassy/floraly and lightly citrusy hops.
M: medium body with a creamy feel, a bit of moderate sharp
Carbonation.... A bit of a sweet and earthy aftertaste.
O: not a bad brew, but not exactly anything that knocked my socks off here, maybe it's just my personal tastes, as this beer is nicley rounded and very drinkable. Guess its just not my thing.
