This is a very tasty, lightly complex, highly drinkable oktoberfest.

Copper, it has a smallish, off-white head that steadily shrinks to a ring and wisps and leaves no real lace.

The aroma is fairly mild, slightly weak, but nice and I can notice some fruity maltiness, hints of caramel, bread crust, and leaves.

The taste is stronger and more full-bodied. It has caramelly bread, a hint of bread crust, leaves, a little citrus (mostly grapefruit, just just barely dominant and not too strong), flowers. It's light but full-bodied in taste, has nice light complexity that remains interesting, zesty, quite juicy, lively, and overall highly drinkable.
