look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

on-tap -> 23oz tall mugged glass

Pours a deep ambered brownish red with a small head that is gone in a flash. No lace. Carbonation appeared slight.

Nose: Sweet malts, caramels, candy

Very smooth and sweet. Malt dominated brew that had lots of caramel flavor.

A tastey brew to enjoy with grub. Probably not something i'd buy by the case, but a very good choice if in a beer challenged bar.

Served in a Sierra Nevada pint glass

A = pours a deep copper with a quickly-dissipating head.

S = slightly sweet, caramel and malt

T = malt, caramel, brown sugar, a bitterness in the aftertaste

M = smooth, just enough carbonation, a touch of alcohol at the end

D = a good Oktoberfest, very solid
