Poured from bottle. Amber color with a thin white head. Herbal hop and spice notes on the nose with a bubblegum aroma that won’t fade. Malty, toasted overtones, with hints of corn and herbs. Finishes bright and dry.

(bottle code 012A15 - poured into a Chouffe tulip)

L: near crystal-clear, tawny-colored liquid with a modest, khaki-hued foam that collapses into a thin cap in about a minute

S: malt-forward, with some notes of wet earth and ripe, perhaps oxidizing apple skin... definite overtone of caramel(ization) in the malt - maybe Munich and a cara-Munich used here?

T: smooth, bold maltiness, with a subtle toasty/roasty edge... grassy-bitter finish that I would expect more from an industrial (Euro) pale lager... clean and somewhat stiff, lacking depth

F: soft and smooth with a tiny bitter bite in the aftertaste... quite easy to knock back, with only a small hint of heavy-ness

O: not all that bad for an American version of this... I could drink a few of them... but, for being one of the better domestic takes, what are they missing? the water? the process (decoction)? proprietary yeast? freshness of ingredients?

Clear dark copper colour. Wheaty, cereal malts, earthy slightly skunky smell to it. Tastes like it smells: slightly sweet cereal malts, slightly wheaty. Clean, not much to it. Light-bodied, no aftertastes.

Would I buy it again? No.

BBD 1/12/15. Clear amber pour with a very nice dark ruby cast. Slightly above normal head volume, average retention and superior lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel notes over a light herbal/floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice slick texture. Above normal carbonation with a good bit of effervescence in the middle and on the finish. The flavor profile is reasonably intense, somewhat complex and well balanced. It begins with toasty biscuit malt then flows into a mild caramel sweetness. The middle is slightly bitter with a nutty/spicy note. The finish is a bit crisp and leaves you with a lingering toasted grainy note. A good Oktoberfest.
