3.78/5  rDev +2.7%

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.

Bottle label data: ENJOY BY : 20 JAN 2015 1019P

Dark copper body with a thin yet lasting head. Roasted grain, nutty aroma. Charred sugars, maple, roasted nuts, and, in the background, an almost smokey character. Medium body with a semi-dry feel.

A very flavorful, full-on malt character, rich in dark malt and woody, nutty flavors.
