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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a rusty orange color with a foamy finger and a half head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing behind.

The nose is very cola-like, sugar cane, bready malt, wheat and ginger

Very thin feel in the mouth but exceptionally drinkable.

Very respectable taste to the style. Could put down a few of these if it was all that was available.

Overall; another good product from Jack's Abby that sticks true to the Oktoberfest style. Would definitely drink again.

I picked this up right at the brewery. This beer started off nice with a nice copper color with good head and lacing.

The smell was just above average with some malt. Nothing special.

Taste is average. Not bad just not tasty as I was expecting.

It gave me a full mouth feel with good carbonation.

I like Jack's abby beers and thought this would be better than other octoberfests I've had but was a little disappointed. Don't take this as a downer. This beer is good, just not what I was hoping for. A little more taste would have rated this higher.

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

Nice frothy 1 finger head fades fairly quickly light lacing, very clear amber orange copper color.

Nose light grainy toasty malts, light Munich like reddish malts with light lager crispness and hint lager fruit, light grassy leafy noble hops,

Taste dry and bready, cracker, biscuit, grainy, etc, light Munich reddish malt with hint of caramel like, toasty. Light lager crispness. Some grassy fruity hops, noble variety but earthier and more robust and bitter than I expected. Finish is dry as throughout with fairly bitter and dry bready slight lager crispness.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall eh, a bit too much cracker bready malts and toastiness, no decoction layered softness I would have wanted, a bit too bitter and earthy, but nothing really wrong, just not what I like in my German Oktoberfest beers, and not what I've come to expect of the top notch lagers from Jack's Abby.

This was an OK beer in my book. Easy drinker, nothing super special. Poured a deep gold/coppery color, nice head that lingered. Somewhat thick mouthfeel, maybe a touch of honey sweetness. A little hoppy and a little malty. Nothing extraordinary, but a very solid lager.
