Pours a soft, light head that collapses quickly. Slightly sweet aroma is dominated by spiciness. Great burnt umber color. Starts with spicy hops and carbonation. Froths into the mouth. As the bitterness peaks at a low-medium bitterness of spice, there is a flash of metallic and then the malt comes in. That malt sits atop the spicy hops to make for a delicious spiced bread like flavor. The finish is lingering spicy hops and malt.

This is really good if you like Oktoberfests for that spiciness. Really well emphasized in this one, but balances nicely with maltiness. The frothy, assertive carbonation works well in this one.

12oz bottle poured into a Kasteel goblet glass

Appearance- À clear orange color with a half finger of fizzy white heads that basically dissipates completely.

Smell- Lots of bread malts with a slight tart hop.

Taste- Lots of malts including bread and a rice like malt with some orange zest and bitter hops on the finish. Balances very nicely.

Mouthfeel- On the lighter side of medium but definitly not watery. A very easy drinking Marzen.

Overall- A greatly balanced Oktoberfest that is tasty and easy on the palate.

a ruby/copper pour with a finger of creme colored head, visible carbonation and good retention.
not getting much aroma from this beer... a slight hint of citrus, slight bready notes and that's about it.
a somewhat tart citrus flavor, lightly bitter, very malty.
light/medium body with high carbonation. crisp and refreshing.

nothing all that impressive. i was honestly expecting way more from this brewery after tasting their peruvian morning and bourbon barrel stout.
