look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
11.2oz green bottle served in a pilsner glass. Batch/date stamp L165L 09:56
Appearance: Clear golden yellow. 1/8" persistent white head. Some lacing hear and there, mostly small islands.
Smell: Malt, German noble hops.
Taste: Simple malt, a hint of honey and apple, nice solid hop bitter finish which is crisp at the end. Spicy noble hop flavors.
Mouthfeel: Good and lively carbonation, nice thickness underneath.
Overall / Drinkability: A simple beer, but very solidly put together such that all the simplicity equals one very drinkable beer. I had this at the Dayton German Fest earlier this year and again now, and in both cases I could easily knock back another, and I would not mind doing so. Not a rich in flavor Marzen, nor is it my favorite as I think the malt is a bit on the weak side - but - it works as a good beer. If I cannot get some of my other favorites, I think I'll look to this one as my backup for large amounts with pork and other typical German Oktoberfest favorites.

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.
