Pours to a deep golden/copper color with moderate head that (unfortunately) fades away to nearly nothing with little remnants on the glass.
The aroma of this beer is malty and pleasing. I find a few hints of caramel in the aroma as well.
This is a tasty beer with nice malty characteristics balanced by some gentle hops finish. Not overly bitter, but certainly not a sweet beer. After giving this beer a chance to warm up a bit and breathe, more character and subtlety appears. Very late, the hops fades in favor of malt and caramel hints.
Mouthfeel is smooth with acceptable amounts of carbonation. Not overly creamy, but not watery.
Drinkability is also good. I want another one!
This is certainly a decent example of a domestic Oktoberfest beer. Very drinkable, refreshing, and enjoyable overall.
