Pours clear, of course, with a virgin white, tightly packed, three inch foam. Frothy she becomes as the foam dissipates. Lacing is minor as it quickly retreats back to the glass.
Aroma is caramel, toasty, bread/cereal malt; leaning toward the toasted bread. Light, stereotypical hop profile. Solid on the nose.
Taste is sweet as most in the style are. Caramel is balanced by a floral hop presence, creating a crisp beer. The toast and bread come quickly after the finish and last throughout.
Light body with a medium or better carbonation. Crisp and refreshing on the mouth.
A solid offering all the way around and one of the better Octoberfest beers I have had over the past year (and I had a lot last year). The sweetness is balanced without being cloying and the crispness of the beer allows for multiple to be had in one sitting. Enjoy!
