Bottle to pint glass

A- pours a clear golden color with a foamy and creamy two-finger white head that retains nicely after the pour

S- dry grainy malt with a whiff of caramel, floral hop, earthy, metallic

T- toasted crust maltiness with some caramel malt flavors, dry grain, herbal & floral hop notes, slightly metallic finish

M- medium-light body with moderate biting carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish, pretty drinkable

O- easy drinking Oktoberfest, but I'd put it slightly below average for the style. The metallic finish was off-outing as well

Poured out a medium amber, clear and effervescent. A mildly creamy white head leaves a little lacing. The aroma is grainy and slightly astringent. The aroma is a little less abrasive, with some nice, if nondescript, malt notes. There is a decent amount of carbonation. It is truly OK.
