Kinda harsh, off balance. Drinkable though.

As the Bros say, clean, crisp, and very drinkable; on par with Sam Adams Octoberfest, better than average, but less than a Thomas Hooker or Otter Creek Octoberfest.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a clear gold to light copper with a two finger head, dissipates to light cap and sticky lacing. Eventually dissipates to no cap or lacing.

S - Sweet malt and a light hoppiness and citrus aroma.

T - Very sweet toffee turning to a light breadiness, minimal hops.

M - Medium body and light carbonation, semi-dry.

O - Not a bad beer, but overall lacking in depth. Almost no hoppiness is also a letdown.
