4.13/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Copper with slight amber hues. A nice, white head sits on top initially but dies quickly. Moderately strong carbonation.
S: One of the more aromatic O-fests I've tried. Lots of toffee and toastiness in the nose. Some breadiness as well. Tons of caramel in the end. Floral, herbal aromas from the hops. Very nice.
T: Solid O-fest taste with more of the toffee and toastiness that was in the nose. Some caramel sweetness, but nowhere near what you'd find in a bock. The hops provide ample bitterness, but well balanced. The only hop flavor I can detect is a light herbal flavor. Maybe a little light on the malty flavors when compared to some, but nice.
M: Light bodied. Stonger carbonation. Finishes pretty dry. Slightly astringent, but not bad.
D: A really nice Oktoberfest. Not my favorite, but still quite good. The lighter body and flavor make this extraordinarily drinkable. A 12 oz bottle is not enough. I could go through a stein very quickly.
Serving type: bottle
