4.13/5  rDev +15%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 5 liter mini-keg, same blue colour as the bottles with good directions on how to dispense and a freshness date printed on top.

Appearance: Pours out a light and bright glowing golden hue, the white froth shows an impressive head and the lace is to die for. This is certainly lighter in colour than all of the Oktoberfest beers I have seen.

Smell: Peppery herbal hop, big cracker like malt sweetness and a clean alcohol are all in the nose.

Taste: Flexed medium body, smooth carbonation … it feels like it just came out of a real keg. Big fresh noble hop bitterness and flavour, lots of herbal and peppery notes. The malt backbone is very sturdy with mild biscuity, doughy and cracker like flavours. Faint warming alcohol that tells you that it does have some strength. Touch of yeast and a flake of husky grain in the mix also. Finishes clean with a light steely malt sweetness.

Notes: Duly awed on not only the stellar looking head but the flavours and the ease of putting it down. Add all this together and offer it in a 5 liter mini-keg and there is no stopping, just don’t try and polish off one of these by yourself.
