A brilliant orange gold pour builds a 1” persistent cream colored foam collar while unleashing rich bread and spicy bread crust aromas. This is a malt driven beer with rich bread and bread crust flavors and a light finishing hop earthy bitterness. There is an initial sweetness that dries out on the finish. Clean and smooth, the beer has a medium body and slightly below average carbonation. A very good Alt style beer brewed with an Oktoberfest grain bill and a clean ale yeast.

Look is a bit clearer than most Octoberfests. Above average Marzen smell.
