Sampled after a 16 oz. Smuttynose pumpkin ale and an ahi tuna sandwich at a local St. Augustine watering hole.
A: Poured a rich amber brown in the glass with a toasted marshmellow head. No chill haze and ready to drink.
S: Smells of rich malts and slight hints of hops and spices. Very subtle.
T: Love how this one tastes. It's a subtle beer with just the right balance of hops and octoberfest spices (anise, ginger, etc.) in the background to make you pause and wonder if they're really present.
M: Definitely a "wet" beer, has no dry finish and leaves you refreshed and wanting another pint. Very low on the hops scale, alcoholics are there but not overpowering.
O: Again, an overall well balanced octoberfestbier. This is one you could drink out of giant German beer steins and not be overwhelmed by hops flavors. A great "mass quanities" party beer.
Serving type: on-tap
