Left Hand Oktoberfest

This 6.6% ABV marzen lager is from Left Hand Brewing of Longmont, Colorado. 

The beer pours a clear and bright copper and amber in color. There is nearly an inch of light tan foam. The aroma is malty, nutty, caramel, a touch of sweet potato. The taste hits the same malty notes as the aroma, but that is immediately followed by a grassy bitterness that cuts down the malt and brings a quick finish. It has a tingling carbonation and is easy drinking. Fine, but doesn’t really stand out in any particular direction. I generally really like the Oktobefest style, but most of them were pretty blah this year for some reason.
