Amber colour, fairly large thick head, clear. Aroma was Munich malts was also slightly grassy. Tasted Munich malt and cranberry, finish was long and wheaty, fairly sweet but balanced. Body was slightly thick, smooth texture, moderate carbonation. Understated, not complex or as in your face as other Munich Oktoberfest beers but very drinkable.

Reviewed from notes prior to the beer dinner co-hosted with JLindros. Poured into a Kate the Great tulip.

A - Pours a nice clear copper hue with a light fizzy off white head that fades semi quickly to leave a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of light toasty malts, a hint of lager yeast fruit, and light sweet lager aromas. Very nice.

T - Taste is clean and crisp with light bready/toasty malts, little sweet lager flavor and some definitive lager yeast fruits. Slightly earthy/grassy hops along with light fruity finishing flavours.

M - Mouthfeel is good carbonation with a nice crisp finish.

O - Overall pretty standard for the style. Good crisp lager characteristics with a hint of hops. Nice.
