Poured clear into a pint glass with a tall, tall bubbly, white foam. Foam becomes a little frothy as the it shrinks down. Outstanding retention for the style.
Aroma is lemon, spicy hops. Lager yeast has a presence. Toasted, sweet malt is the backbone of the beer but doesn't take a huge seat in the sniffer, rather enough to know it is there.
Taste has the same lemon and mild spice from the aroma. Toasted and sweet malt once again play a minor roll. An ever so slight after taste of metal, not pleasing at all, that seems to build in the back of my mouth between sips.
Light carbonation and light/medium mouth feel. Possible to find some creaminess in there.
I was looking forward to this beer as I enjoy the usual unusual from FFF but this beer comes up short. First I don't find it even close to what I consider to be an Oktoberfest beer. Second, and final, the metal in the aftertaste just was a big turn off. That said, this isn't a bad beer, just a let down for a brewery that usually delivers more, much, much more. Enjoy!
