A- Poured in a 1 liter beer stein at Lunar. Great amount of head three fingers that stays with the beer. Copper in color, clear, with a slight amber hue.

S- Malt, little hop character, and lager yeast. Totally can smell the Munich and Vienna malts in this one. Perfect for a Bavarian style Oktoberfest.

T- Biscut, malt, and bitter finish I'd guess Saaz or Hallertauer in their hop selection. It'd make sense to use those two for this brew.

M- Thick, crisp, and smooth.

0- This one is for a German/Czech Lager fan. Not bitter at all so I doubt a hop head or IPA only drinker would enjoy this beer. Lunar rocks!

Pours a garnet red with deep amber highlights. Great tan head that lasts about halfway through my 16 oz mug. The aroma is heavy with toasted malt, bread, rolls, and alittle roasted grain as well. Then some German hops to add a little earthy zing. The taste is a stupendous malt palate of rich malt grain sweetness. Toasted and a little roasted to perfection. Giving off tons of bready, even pretzely goodness. The palate is super smooth, a little dry, and crisp thanks to the modereate hopping of this awesome octoberfest.

A pretty good Oktoberfest. It looks orange - copper in color with a creamy white foam stand, and moderately carbonated. Aromas are of medium malt, bready, toasty, peaches, mangos, and appricots. Flavors are a bit sweet and and fruity. This over takes the toast and malt character a bit. Medium mouthfeel with a smooth texture. Lightens toward the end. Finishes slight of clean and a bit sweet with a mild alcohol note in the aftertaste.
