3.87/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz undated bottle poured into a.5L krug at fridge temp 6% ABV 26 IBU. The beer pours mostly bright, dark amber in color with off white head. Retention and lacing are above average. The aroma is toasted malt. The taste is nicely balanced nutty, toasted malt and noble hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. No off flavors or feel. Overall, very nice and a hands down winner against any other Indiana offering I've sampled this year. Worth a try if it's around.

Quite malty, and a good rendition of the style. That being said, there was some subtle tartness that, while deviant from the style, complimented the malts well and lent a refreshing character despite the emphasis on rich, dark malts.

Tried this one at the brewery.

A - NIce amber-orange color with nice clarity. Mild white head that sits nicely. Light lacing.

S - Strong malty aroma with some caramel notes. Also grainy tones with some light hops. Smells like an Oktoberfest.

T - Mostly malty with some grainy, caramel, and lager flavor. The craft beer quality is something that I really enjoy. This beer is sweet but not cloying with some bitterness to help balance but isn't as crisp as some Oktoberfest beers I've had.

M - Medium mouth-feel. Light to moderate carbonation. The malt sweetness is the main reason for the body but still lager crisp.

Overall, this is a really good craft lager that is great for drinking on a mild fall day. This is a good beer for the style but doesn't try for anything special and is mostly balanced.

Had this as part of my sampler flight when I visited People's last weekend and liked it a lot so I got a growler to take home and review!

A: Pours a clear orangeish amber with a good 2 & 1/2 fingers of off white head. Looks really delicious!

S: Smells Amazing! A perfect smell of maltiness with a touch of hops. Also smells of freshly baked bread. Really appealing on the nose.

T: Follows the smell very well. Really Bready, Caramel maltiness. With a little tinge of hops. I could drink this all day!

M: Really smooth, not overly carbonated medium body...Excellent.

O: Well this isn't a style that I've had a lot of beers in yet, but I am trying quite a few this fall season and so far this is by far the best one I've had. Solid A
