A- Nice amber color with a weak head. Fairly good lacing. Looks pretty delicious.
S - nice blend of hops and malt, but malt is a little more overpowering. Carmely with a hint of molasses notes in there.
T - I'm getting the hops up front, but they are quickly overshadowed by the smooth malt flavor. Definitely not Spaten Optimator (Bouble Bock) malt flavor, but any idiot could taste the malts. A little salty, not particularly my taste. Coming from a fairly unbiased position (not knowing much about Marzen's or Oktoberfests, I think it's pretty nice.
O - Out of 10 I'd give this beer a 6.5. Which is not bad. I'm critical in my beer expedition. It would be hard for me to drink more than 1 or 2 of these, not only because there's so much more to try, but also because of the rich smooth flavor. I think I'm full just thinking about drinking more than this one right here.
Definitely worth a try
