Draught @ Brewpub: this one pours a dark, hazy amber color. There was minimal head and some lacing. The nose is OK. Earthy and some malts. The taste is OK. Earthy flavors overcome the malts. It could be better balanced.

Pours a hazy amber/copper color with a thin light tan head. Poor retention and no real lacing.

The aroma is ok. Some sweet caramel and some bread. Really not that fragrant.

The taste is ok. Some caramel, citrus, nuts, bread, and some hay like features. Slightly bitter on the finish.

Mouthfeel is fairly thin, kind of watery. Slight carbonation up front but goes flat before you're halfway through a pint.

Drinkability is moderate. Decent flavor and presumeably low alcohol make for a sessionable beer. However, it just wasn't working for me as an Oktoberfest.
