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

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.
