Crystal clear copper in color with 1 inch fluffy white head. Looks like a perfect Oktoberfest!
Light toasty malt is about all I get from the aroma. Maybe it's just a style of beer I don't appreciate, but I'm not impressed yet.
Lightly toasted grains with subtle hop bitterness. Fairly clean flavor over all with a bright crisp bitterness. A nice sweetness and subtle fruitiness. What impresses me most is the clean freshness to this beer.
Slightly thin body with subtle carbonation.
It's a very solid Oktoberfest beer with a nice toasted malt profile and slight hop character, but unfortunately I'm not a huge fan of most lagers. Crisp and clean and well constructed.
