Bauhaus Brew Labs Schwandtoberfest

This is a "seasonal curiosity", a 5.7% ABV seasonal limited release Bavarian-style Festbier. It is from Bauhaus Brew Labs of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The beer pours a deep copper and dark amber in color. There is a half-inch of light tan head. The aroma is malty, caramel, lightly nutty, floral, spicy. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes. There is a solid malt base, but it drinks light and spicy, with some grassy bitterness on the finish. The beer drinks smooth with moderate carbonation.
