This beer is obviously from the october, november months, but I don't think it should change the taste that much in 3-4 months.
App.-Very light and pilsner looking in appearance. This beer has a nice white foamy lacing.
Smell- Very basic. Light barely malt, a tad bit of hops and a little boozy smell. Not much there.
Taste- Similar to the smell. Sweet pilsner malts dominate throughout most of the drink. Hops come to balance half way through to balance. Barely noticable though.
MF- I am disapointed with a lack of carbonation. Medium mouthfeel that doesn't swim well in the mouth.
Drink- Dry finish. Very quenching. I do not think this should be an octoberfest beer but instead a summer release. It would serve me much better on the hottest of days.
My biggest issue is the price of this beer. I think it cost me about 11.99 or 12.99 (It's rare I forget how much beer costs because money is a big issure for me) I think you can get a much better 6-pack of pils or summer beers for 5 dollars less.
You can skip this one. I'll give this brewery another chance when I have the money because it seems like there could be potential.

Another beer I'm shocked I haven't gotten around to reviewing.
On tap at The Seehund. Pours a translucent light amber color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is malty with some honey, sweet bread, caramel and floral hop notes. The taste is floral hops followed by the malts. Caramel and honey towards the end with a bit of floral hops. Medium bodied. Overall, great representation of the style.
