Appearance is a rustic ruby red color that is clear with a white head that fades fast.
Smell is of a nice caramel malt with some dark fruit and some nuttiness I would guess from using Ayinger Lager yeast. Bready malt with some grassy earthy hop.
Taste- Sweet malt with a bite of earthy spicy hops to balance it out. A light nuttiness with a good amount of bread and cracker. Finishes dry with a light spice and earthy note.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Whaddaya mean Oktoberfest season is over!? This one pours a clear amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly buttery biscuit, orange zest, and sweet flowers. The taste holds notes of orange zest, caramel, light toast, and a bit of grass. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Overall, a pretty nice little O-Fest, nothing crazy, but an eminently drinkable autumnal brew.
