Poured from 11.2-ounce bottle into dimpled mug. Light amber color with a fluffy white head that fades rather quickly, leaving almost no lacing and a few spotty islands of foam on the surface. This has a lot of complexity that seems to peak at cellar temperature. There is some sweetness and a little light caramel at first, then spicy bitterness and a hint of tart apple that lingers on the finish. I would love to be able to revisit this in Munich during Oktoberfest someday!

Clear golden color with light, airy foam that dissolves rapidly.Hayloft aroma and taste of bread (white bread). Not as good as I thought it would be....(or should be)

Golden color with white head. Aroma has grains, bread crust and alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet at first, grainy and bready but gets more bitter in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Easy drinking and quite refreshing.
