The beer pours a clear copper and amber in color. There is an inch of thick off-white foam. The aroma is toasted and roasted malt, nutty, caramel, straw, fruity, with a grassy edge. The taste follows the aromas, lots of caramel and nut from the toasted malts, sweetness in the background pleasantly beat down by a dry, grassy, bitterness. It drinks crisp and refreshing. This is simply a great Oktoberfest style beer.
