Notes/Commercial Description:
Ancient timelines talk of dark days, plagued by hardships and Kingdom demands. When hope was all but lost, a legend emerged. A plumber. With copper pipes and an uncanny wit, he battled fierce foes and saw to the brewery’s opening. Our Octoberfest is malty, smooth and exceedingly drinkable. It is perfect to celebrate and honor today’s legends. We use locally grown wheat from MA, Munich malt and noble hops.

12 oz bottle was poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bready, toasted grains, burnt bread, a little sweetness, lager yeast, and grassy hops.

Taste: Nice Munich malt, wheat, and Noble hops.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, a bit chewy, low to medium carbonation, and light bitterness.

Overall: Pretty nice Octoberfest. Would have preferred more sweetness, but I'm content with it.

500ml bottle from 4-pack poured into Founders snifter. Bottle says 5.9% abv.

A- Pours a dark reddish brown copper with about a finger of white bubbly, foamy head that has good retention and slowly recedes leaving layered lacing. About average carbonation.

S- Some light hops, pale malts, a little bit grainy. About average aroma strength, definitely nothing special.

T- Caramel malts, pale malts, some light hops, a little bit of grain, some caramel on the finish that lingers. Again nice flavors, but nothing special.

M- Medium bodied, maybe a tiny bit light for the style, nice carbonation, easy to drink, nice feel.

O- This was a pretty decent oktoberfest, nothing special- which is what I've come to expect from Jack's Abby. I enjoyed drinking it, but it wasn't something that I would drink all the time. Not too much complexity or a ton of flavor. Definitely easy to drink and far from terrible, but far from the best of Jack's Abby lagers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a deep copper color with half an inch of head that fades down to nothing

S: Get mostly graininess and a light sweetness from the Munich malts along with a light fruitiness

T: Starts off with the Munich malts, which provide a light graininess and some sweetness. This is followed by a husky fruit note. Finishes lightly bitter from the hops

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A decent American Octoberfest with a definite focus on malts. Not really all that complex, but it's very drinkable. Would be a good option at a festival

Got as an extra from someone, but can't remember who so thanks trading partner!

Pours orange with a small white foamy head. No lacing.

Smells of caramel with some earthy dirty aroma. A bit off.

Sweet caramel malts with a bit of apple and unfortunately a metallic dirty finish. Upfront flavors are ok, but the finish leaves a bit to be desired.

Thin bodied with good carbonation. I'd like more mouthfeel here.

Despite the words above I did enjoy drinking this beer. There were just little things in almost every aspect that made it average instead of good.

Pours a golden color with orange hues, small but decent head, fades at a moderate pace, no lacing on my glass.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with a subtle hop character, nothing that grabs my nostrils attention.

Taste is surprisingly smooth and slick, the body is excellent with a nice creamy feel it to, carbonation is near perfect, taste is mostly malt but does has a decent hop balance in the aftertaste which helps to smooth it out, neither flavor is overwhelming but just the right amount, very easy drinking with a semi-dry finish that keeps you refreshed and coming back for more.

Finishing up the 4-pack of 500mls, trying everything I can from this brewery.

Pours copper orange with a big ol off-white head, which eventually reduces to a half-finger and retains fine.

Smell is simple, clean, lagery. Straight up grainy, bready, caramel malt.

Taste is similar, maybe a bit too clean for an oktoberfest. A bit on the sweet side for the style. Caramel and buttery malts dominate, with some light toastiness on the finish.

Very smooth mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. Good thickness to it.

Pretty decent, but a little simple and sweet for my tastes, reminds me of alot of other American oktoberfests, great malty mouthfeel is a highlight.
