S - Bready but a fruity happiness as well. Tangerines. Cereal. 4.25/5

T - White bread. Grassy hop finish. A hint of light caramel sweetness. Cereal. 4/5

M - Very smooth and creamy. Very low carbonation. Finishes wet. 4.5/5

O - Love this Oktoberfest offering. Very smooth and goes down easy. Lack of bitterness. Very straightforward beer. 4.25/5

Poured this one into a Sam Adams glass.

I like a good Octoberfest beer. No nonsense, just heavy enough on the hops but still balanced, makes you want to drink more than one. This one fits the bill nicely. Not much of a head, decent lacing. Light amber in color. Hops with just a bit of citrus on the nose. Not real complicated. Hops on the palate with an ever so slightly astringent finish. Almost too easy to drink. I could easily knock back too many of these in one sitting. Makes me quite affectionate for this time of year.
