Had at BJ's Oktoberfest dinner 2017 so took no notes. I enjoyed it though.

Pretty color amber, good clarity, full inch of head to it. Solid sheet of lace. Delivered a decent amount of malt, caramel and toffee in the aroma. Some grain aspect too.

Taste was smooth, albeit run of the mill. A little bitter, not too bad. Best thing about it is the appearance. You should have seen this dumpy girl failing out of nursing school for the second time drinking this in between finals. Super desperate and depressing.

Flashback #15 - Nice little hint of spices makes this one pleasant. Had it in Orlando, FL.
