One of the best beers I've ever had. Could drink it year round.

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
