From Sac Brew's Oktoberfest a few days ago.

A - Dark red to auburn in color, little, off-white head, dissipates fast.

S - Malts, light nuttiness, and light earthy hops.

T - Malts, and moderately earthy hops.

M - Spicy hops linger, but don't mingle as well as planned with the malts.

D - Not bad, but a good first attempt for Peter and crew. Would advise to drop the hop content and use a little less grain to get a lighter, truer alt color.
