22oz : nonic

Clear, burnt orange, brown with a foamy, off white head.

Fairly typical caramel malt base with a lightly grassy hop character.

Medium body, medium, foamy carbonation.

A fairly average, yet still enjoyable Oktoberfest.

Poured into a perfect pint at 42 degrees.

Appearance: A two finger head that is frothy and creamy. The head is off white and left a little lacing on the glass. The head has really good retention. The color of the beer is medium dark copper color with amber hues. The clarity of the beer is close to opaque; however, some carbonation bubble are visible.

Nose: A rich roasted malt and toasted malt aromas with some yeast. The hops is a bit fruity with some citrus notes.

Taste: Medium roasted malt with toasted flavors. Some bread and yeast notes. The hops is fruity and has some citrus and floral notes.

Mouth feel of the beer is carbonated, slightly astringent, and creamy.

Overall: The beer is a descent example of Oktoberfest. I would have like to seen a deeper malt character. The hops in the beer is a tad too strong for a rich creamy and smooth finish.
