3.78/5 rDev +2.4%
12 oz bottle poured into pilsener glass.
A - Dark amber. Smallish head.
S - General hoppiness. Earthy aroma, small hints of of caramel and smoke.
T - Solid malt backbone. Slight amount of hoppy bitterness. I notice earthy hops. An ever so slight bit of smokiness. Solid malt backbone has elements of toasted wheat bread and earthiness.
D - Slightly thick. About how a Marzen should be. Definitely drinkable.
O - A solid Oktoberfest. I don't drink a lot of this style as so many seem similar to me, and there isn't much variation it seems. This is a solid Oktoberfest though. Somehwta complex, full of flavor and fairly easy to drink. I recommend it.

Poured bottle into glass. 5.6% abv
Appearance- Cloudy orange amber with a two finger slightly off white head that dissipates.
Smell- Lemon along with some fresh caramel malt and honey.
Taste- Rich caramel malt flavor. Toasted cracker tastes goes on to a mild bitterness as far as this style goes. A short and simple flavor profile but quite lively.
Mouthfeel- Medium-thin with great carbonation. Crisp.
Overall- A near perfect octoberfest in my opinion. So flavorful. The malt taste in this beer is great. Well done and a must try oktoberfest!

Poured from the bottle into a ghandi-bot tulip.
A: Beautiful dark orange with compact head that dissipates into a very thin ring.
S: Malty, big caramel malts. Beautiful. Yeast and hops are mild and very much in the background.
T: Follows nose and is perfect velvety creamy and very slightly slick on the palate. Roasted honey sweet like notes and some of the hops present as tea-like.
M: creamy, medium full end of the spectrum. finishes with that tea-like note and then goes creamy and sweet but never cloying.
O: very nice and perfect for fall.
