Pours with a nice light tan head that looks good with the deep golden-amber color of this beer. It has a decent darkness to it for an Oktoberfest beer.
The aroma on this one is way malty. Some nice subtle roasted notes as well. But mostly the sweetness of the malts comes through with some caramels and brown sugars.
Sweet, roasted malts are really what this beer is all about. Not an overpowering sweetness, but a great balance in my opinion. Although I always prefer hop dominant beers, this one has a perfect amount of malt sweetness so that it isn't overpowering but is very enjoyable. Some mild, very minimal hop bitterness finds its way through somewhere in the middle along with some spiciness. But this is all very subtle and fades to a thick creamy malt sweetness on the back end.
Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy and a solid medium body. Goes down incredibly smooth. The creaminess and sweetness from the malt leaves a good aftertaste as well. This is a great session beer. I don't know if I could drink them all night long, but certainly could have a few at a time.
Serving type: on-tap
