4/5 rDev +8.7%
Appearance - Much lighter than expected, it's just a nice golden yellow. Hard poor generated 2 fingers foamy head that dropped quickly into a thin film , a little lacing.
Smell - Sweet floral and spicy hop aroma, sweet cracker malt - very clean
Feel/Taste - Crisp medium-light body, some prickly and lively carb. Taste is very much like smell: super clean, floral/spicy hop bite ending with lightly sweet bready malt, simple but good. Very drinkable.
Overall - Not what I was expecting from an O-Fest after only drinking Sam Adams O-Fest prior. Maybe this is more tradition? Anyway, it looks, tastes, and feels much more like a traditional pilsner, which isn't bad, just lacking the heavier caramel malt qualities I'm used to. It's still a fantastic beer.

3.9/5 rDev +6%
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a Red Hook pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear golden straw with heavy carbonation. One-inch bone white head.
Aroma: Big malt presence up front. Also some interesting woodiness and nuttiness in there. Some grass, toast, and a small hint of lemon.
Taste: Taste follows the nose - big malt presence up front. It has a nice lingering malt flavor and finishes clean and dry.
Overall: Great all-seasons beer. I love that big malt flavor. Great in October, but also great in every other month.
