Good, dark copper color and an attractive head. Lacing apparent, but not sticky or much of it.
Good solid beer, with some bitterness that runs all the way through from start to finish. I didn’t get that typical, full bodied, sweetness that one can get with some Oktoberfest’s, more a medium bodied, bitter, dark beer. Slightly out of style I thought. I miss the maltier, chewier body that ought to accompany the style.
Smell brings out the grain and is not that attractive.
Drinkable, but fairly simple beer, slightly above average in my book.
