Bells Octoberfest Beer
12 oz bottle
Moderate pour in a shaker.
No batch number, recent brewing, absorbed 08/07.

Poured a clear copper amber with a medium fizzy white somewhat diminishing head.

Smelt of moderate toffee, caramel malt, grain, dry leaves.

Taste was upfront moderate sweet toffee and or caramel malt with a light fruitiness and bitter grain followed by a strong bitter dry leaves yeast finish and more moderate to light sweet caramel and fruit on an average length finish.

Palate was light to medium bodied, creamy, lively carbonated and light to moderate astringency.

Overall, this was a very respectable octoberfest. It seemed a bit disappointing at first but it opened up towards the end. It definitely strays a bit from the authentic German style though.
