I got a growler of this at the brewery, it says is a Kulmbacher-style lager, i'm not sure what style it is, i didn't see it on the list.
I poured the beer into a pint glass, it has a maghoney color body with no head. The smell is kinda sweet and malty. The taste is sweet and malty, some oak flavoring also. The mouth feel is good and overall a really good beer.
