11/24/2010: My first beer back! I actually drank this a while back, but took a mini vacation from updating. I have about 6-7 beers to update, just need to get around to editing the pictures and getting everything up on the site. About the beer; this is classified as a Rye Beer on BA, but I am convinced that has to be a mistake. It HAS to be an Oktoberfest just check out the design on the can.

The nose is Pale malt dominant with some noble hop action. The flavor is just amazing as far as an Oktoberfest goes; some caramel, nuts, noble hops, and even a bit of citrus. The rye is there but I would not call this a rye beer. Interesting combo of flavors, but they work amazingly well. Mouthfeel is super creamy for a lager, medium body and super drinkable. I really wish Surly would distribute to PA. Maybe someday!

Picture of the day: A Genie does not let you wish for more wishes …butttttt.
