2.9/5 rDev -27%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Serving Type: 1pt .9fl oz bottle
Appearance: Pours a "dirty"(read red) orange that starts w/ a lovely 1 finger head and quickly becomes a little round circle on top of my beer.
Smell: Caramel and alcohol(mild) hit the nose first followed by a bit of grains. Sweet to the nose.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Hmmm....not as sweet as I was expecting. A bread like malt really dominates the taste and ends w/ a touch of hop bitterness at the end. I barely taste any of the caramel that hits the nose. Don't really feel the alcohol in this beer. Very crisp though and goes down quite well.
Drinkability: Not what I was expecting(because of the smell) but still a good enough Oktoberfest beer.
Oddly enough a lot of people reviewed the beer as being sweet in taste and I'm getting more of the bready Maltyness and no real sweetness. Take it for it's worth I guess
Serving type: bottle
