Had on tap at the brewery.

A: Pours a clear copper with two fingers of tan head.

S: Roasted malt.

T: A hint of sweet malt upfront followed by small amount of hop bitterness. As it warms flavors of caramel and light smokiness come out. Dry finish that is crisp.

M: Lighter side of medium with great carbonation.

O: A very nice Oktoberfest.

16 ounce can into dimpled mug, canned on 8/1/2018. Pours slightly hazy dark orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, crust, dough, toasted biscuit, light nutty, and herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit of fruity/yeasty aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, crust, dough, toasted biscuit, light nutty, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, crust, dough, toasted biscuit, light nutty, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and mild earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying flavors after the finish. Nicely clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity/yeasty notes present. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is a very good Oktoberfest. All around nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and mild earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the minimally bitter/drying finish. A bit darker on the malts than expected, but delicious. Very clean and rich dark/Munich malt complexity, with mild noble hop balance against sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example as expected.
