3.26/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: 12oz bottle poured into a .5L Octoberfest stein. Golden in color with a medium white head. Crystal clear clarity. Appropriate for a domestic Octoberfest.
Aroma: Moderate Grainy Malts with moderate lager yeast sulfur on the back end.
Taste: Malty sweet upfront, some bread in the middle and finishes with a light noble hop bite at the end and some faint caramel. I wish I was getting more Munich and Vienna malt character.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation finishes slightly sweet, moderate attenuation but not dry.
Overall: It was an average Octoberfest beer - but not quite the Marzen profile I was looking for. I felt it leaned more towards a full bodied & malty pils. I'll finish the six pack - CHEERS!
Serving type: bottle

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.
