12oz bottle served in a tumbler. No dating on the bottle. Reviewed 10/27.

A- cap pops off extremely loud (louder than many corks) and gives way to some gushing, emptying the neck of the bottle. Pours with a massive, light brown head that fills 2/3 of the glass. Body is rich copper with a hint of ruby. Slightly hazy.

S- A busy mess - notes of apple or cider.

T- metallic, oxidized malty. Syrupy, almost tastes like malt extract? Yeasty, in a bad way. Cidery. Can't tell if this is infected already or not, but it seems headed in that direction.

M- sticky and overcarbonated.

O- after 2 sips I thought "I can finish this, it's not a drainpour, but it's not awful". After 2 more sips it gave me the shivers and promptly went down the drain.

Honestly there's not really much to say about this beer on the positive side. Very bland for an Octoberfest. Pours copper color, more carbonated than most micro domestics. Slightly sweet smell, very German style taste and might even use malts from there which is the only thing powerful about the beer. Watery body doesn't leave much on the palate after going down. No distinct note of hops.
