Sweet and full of malt. Toast and warm, yet cool and spicy. Apple flavor, to my nose.

Golden orange, pretty good clarity. Little head, but he’s a persistent little devil.

Toasty malt with roasted sweetness. A little alcohol noticeable. Sweet apple flavor. Medium-full body malt. I don’t really detect any hops – they’re subtle.

Good clean Oktoberfest. I like it.

Pours a clear, copper color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, pale malt, grain, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, grain, slight hop, hint of yeast, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, hops and sweet malt are background flavors compared to the pale malt and grain.
