Poured from a 64oz growler into two pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Pours a lovely, unfiltered, deep amber color with two creamy fingers of off white head on top. Retention was fleeting with the foam quickly melting down to a thin collar that left no lace.

S: Whoa! Nice toasty biscuits drizzled with lemony hops.

T: Big flavors of toasted bread crusts, lemony hops, caramel malt, and bright fresh oak. Heather said it reminded her a little of Malt-O-Meal. Some subtle grapiness towards the finish.

M: Really quite full and spicy. Loads of sticky hops and dry toasted grains. Totally not what we were expecting.

O: A stupid good Lager. Perfect beer for a true Fall day...like today!

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Gonzo Illini!

Poured into a Half Acre glass, formed a 1/2" beige head over the slightly cloudy orangey amber brew. Head holds on well, with lasting lace. Aroma is malty yet citrusy as well.

Taste starts with nutty malt sweetness, citrus and pine in the middle, and comes home with a balnced bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and drinkability is great. Good brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Slightly cloudy dark amber in color. Forms a thin off-white head that slowly reduces down to a very thin, somewhat patchy surface coating. Leaves some light lacing.

S: Rather aromatic. Primarily caramel malts with a light toffee sweetness. Toasted malts and a blend of light grassy and citrus hops.

T: Caramel malts. Light sweetness. Toffee, toasted malts and a flavor I can only describe as "lightly peanuty." Some light hops on the finish. Flavor is very smooth with a maltiness that comes and goes quite quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium with pretty good carbonation. Very mild bitterness.

O: A good beer and a very smooth, clean representation of the style. Not nearly as malty as most O-fests. Very drinkable.

Deep saturated copper amber color, sheets of lace in the glass, lasting coverage on the surface that has a creamy texture. Bright clarity with rising trails of visible carbonation.

Clean mild hop aroma, some general yeastiness, the toasted malt character is missing however.

Smooth feel, lightly malty, earthy and toasty grain husks, light bitterness that lingers in the finish. Dry and not sweet, clean and more bitter than most traditional Oktoberfests. Nuanced hop character, not overt, though the bitterness seems to define it. Overall very drinkable, enjoyable and subtle.
