look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Two and a half fingers of head form a bubbly pillow on top of a transparent amber beer. The dense, white head leaves forms of lace all around the glass.

S: Malt is obviously the name of the game with this one, with bready, toasty, and sweet notes coming through simultaneously. The sweetness is somewhat odd, or at least unique, in that it somewhat resembles a Werther's Orginal, but ever-so faintly.

T: Up front there is lots of bread and toasty malt notes, with that light caramel/toffee flavor hidden in there as well. Hop presence is a little more dialed up than your traditional German Oktoberfest, but not to the point of distraction, and actually balances quite well, in my opinion. Finish is gentle and slightly cloying, with a tiny residual presence of hops.

M: Medium bodied goodness, with the carbonation at a near-perfect level. Bit of a slick hop feel noticeable, but mostly an enjoyable malt fest.

D: Rather drinkable, as the style often lends itself to, but also rather different. This interpretation is a little bolder than expected, which I came to admire. Went nicely with a serving of swiss cheese and water crackers.
