I had this with an italian dinner in a water glass. The pairing was a little odd, but it worked decently.

I get a decent amount of European hopping in the nose. There is a decent amount of nuttiness as well. It was kind of mellow with as many different smells there.

The flavor is a good example for the style in a very non-challenging way. It is perfect for the audience. This combination makes this beer an easy drinker.

Overall, this is a decent example of an Oktoberfest type beer. There is nothing different about this beer... it is very simple.
