Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of strong caramel malt, pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight nut, hint of butterscotch, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight earthy malt, slight pale malt, hint of hops, and hint of yeast. Overall, a little too sweet and the nuts are an odd characteristic, but otherwise a decent Oktoberfest.
