Bottle purchased at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a clear light amber, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Doesn't smell like a whole lot, a little bit honey, some toasted bread, and lager yeast.

The taste is pretty similar. Just not a whole lot going on here, a really pedestrian Oktoberfest. Doesn't necessarily taste bad, just boring. All of the notes mentioned in the aroma are present in the taste.

This one is fairly light bodied, with a lower amount of carbonation. Fairly drinkable.

Not bad, but not really that good, either.

The absolute, unrelenting eradication of my back inventory continues. I just want to return to The CANQuest (TM), but the bottles glare at me for ignoring them. This one came from The Fridge and went into my fridge.

From the bottle: "Craft Brewed [-] Extremely Fresh [-] Micro Brau"; "Long Island's Brewery".

Another surprising screw-top! I used a heavy-handed pour, which resulted in a pseudo-cascade. This settled fairly quickly into two-plus fingers of dense, rocky, tawny head with good retention. Color was solid-gold (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and of course Mammon, Croesus and Midas showed up, clamoring for a taste. I watched, bemused, as the head fell, leaving behind sticky lacing in its wake and I was thinking about some gelt for me. Nose was very biscuit-like, quite malty, but not overly sweet. Mouthfeel was medium with a pleasant amount of carbonation on the tongue. The flavor was both biscuity and grassy, a nice combination of malts and hops that proved to be eminently drinkable. The finish evinced a slight honey-like sweetness, something often found in the quality lagers, but overall, I would still classify it as semi-dry.
