3.72/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Poured a clear copper body with two fingers worth of white head...spotty retention led to not much lacing

S - Sweet, toasted malts with caramel and buttered bread coming to mind...a hint of earthy hops

T - Starts off on the sweeter side with a load of caramel and some hints of toffee lingering...toasted malts take a little edge off the caramel...they end up adding some biscuit flavors that show off some sweetness as well...there is a brief grainy presence but that gets cut short as the grassy and floral hops come in at the end to finish the beer

M - Medium bodied...sweet with a touch of grassy hops at the finish

O - A very easy to drink Oktoberfest but it was a little on the sweet side as far as flavors go...I wish the toasted malts would have balanced things out more...nonetheless this one goes down very easy

Reviewed from notes.

A - Pours a crystal clear copper hue with a small off white head that faded at average rate to leave minimal side lacing.

S - Light sweet malts that are so common with oktoberfests, light bready grains, and some subtle spicy hops at the end.

T - Taste is close to the nose. Lots and lots of those sweet malts and bready undertones. There is a gentle earthy spice note towards the end.

M - Mouthfeel is smooth, a bit lowly carbonated and thin though.

O - Overall this is a slightly above average oktoberst. With so many good ones in this style, I'll have to pass on this again.

12 oz bottle. Pint glass.

A: Pours clear-copper color; two fingers of light tan head last for some time. Thin film remains.

S: Sweet toasted malts, caramel, some dry cereal grain, and perhaps a fruity presence.

T: All malts: caramel, grain, a little burnt toast, and a kiss of banana.

M: Medium-thin body with average carbonation.

O: Average for the style. A typical mediocre beer from Brooklyn.
