Really like this batch of this beer. Much better than Ska's ...

The first one was a dark, balanced, almost sweet brew with a decent ABV. It was sort of a dunkle munich style ale. 2010 is closer to a traditional Ocktoberfest lager without any Mr. Beer ingredients.

FG was 1.007. Not real clear. I wonder if this is because of the low boiling rather than the yeast. The lallemand website says "Flocculation is very high producing clear beers without filtration or use of process aids". Maybe it just needs to cool down. Anyway, the flavor is good.
