Pours a darker amber color with good clarity. Darker for style but ok. A light fizzy head with good retention but next to no lacing.

The nose has a stronger note of caramel. Some hints of biscuit notes. Very limited Vienna notes and next to no Munich. A bit dry, would like to see more sweetness. There is a strong nutty aroma. Just not right for an ofest. Closer to an amber lager than ofest. Some minor hop and phenols. Some minor bubblegum as well.

The taste is similar. More of a caramel flavor with some bready notes. Noticeable nutty but not as bad as the nose. Some hints of Vienna and Munich. Really looking for this to be the outlining character and it really is lacking. Some minor earth hop notes. Bubblegum comes out more in the yeast but other than that mostly clean.

The body is light. A bit dry for style. Overall really disappointed. IMHO this is more of an Amber Lager and lacks the malt structure for an Ofest.
