Notes/Commercial Description:
This German amber is brewed with imported German malts, and imparts a toast and honey malt flavor. Cool lager fermentation and long aging time perfects this beer with a crisp finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: This Oktoberfest pours a clear, pure amber color. There's a couple fingers of off white head that reduces to almost no lacing.

Smell: Malty and a bit caramelly with a bit of fruitiness. Very subtle flavors in this beer. Nothing really stands out.

Taste: Caramel and malts and just a bit of fruitiness up front. A touch of hops on the backside, but like the smell nothing stands out too much. Overall, a pretty nice, balanced flavor.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and pretty smooth, fine carbonation. This is a drinkable beer and solid example of the style. Wouldn't hesitate to have it again.

on tap at the miner house in little old Colstrip, Montana. it took my by surprise to see a craft brew at this little pub. it also took me by surprise how good it is. a orange tinted brass color with a full inch of white head in a pint glass. classic looks. the nose is a little sweeter than some octoberfest types, with a medium toast on the grains as well. the flavor is smooth and balanced, drinkable as anything, honey and vanilla are present as it finishes, counteracting a german bittering hop in low dose. this is a session lager if ever there was one, being refreshing, satisfying, interesting, and delicious all at once. love the freshness, and remember drinking an oaked version at the brewery last year. this is cleaner than that one was, simple but not boring. a very well made lager, one I will look forward to having again. sucked back maybe four pints of this with no trouble.
