11.2 oz. bottle

Pours clear golden yellow with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like big apples, pear, grape, some caramel, honey malts, crackery toasted crusty white bread, mild spice, with floral earthy herbal grass. Tastes like apples, pears, grape, some caramel, honey, big rich crusty toasted white bready malts, sweet crackery grain, mild spice, with floral earthy herbal grass. Feels medium bodied, thick and creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really great Oktoberfestbier.

I don't really like Oktoberfests, but I love this beer. One of my Fall favorites. Doesn't really match the style, though. Probably why I like it so much!

This is a wonderfull Oktoberfest, with a nice raisiny- spicey alcoholic quality and zesty complexity along with a creamy feel.

Bright gold and somewhat bubbly, it has a very large faintly off-white head that shrinks very slowly to a thin, lasting top. It produces sme decent lace in foamy rings.

The aroma is wonderful, full-bodied bread crust quality with raisiny sweet alcohol, grass, herbs, hints of lemon and butter.

The taste is similar, zesty, sweetly and spicly alcoholic raisin and grape with a creamy butter quality, a lot of bread and some hay and grass, hints of grain, grass, herbs, lemon zest and pear. It's zesty, with great balance and a finish that's tingly, zesty, lightly bitter with warm alcoholic bite.
