Picked up some pounder cans tonight for a pretty expensive $3ish at Brewforia Meridian (will probably be cheaper around town) ... Poured into my big nonic glass... Fairly clear amber red brew with a lite tan head that doesn't stick around for too long.
Nose is big toasty notes with pretty nutty maltiness..
Flavor mirrors the nose... but there is a bit of fruitiness that I can grab but have a hard time identifying.. Not sure if a lager yeast was used; but if not, they did a good job making sure this was a clean rendition of the style.
Well done and obviously tastes fresh.... Was lager yeast used? I want to know.

On tap at Sockeye's (S)ocktoberfest party, 10/8/11.
A: Pours ruddy amber with golden hues and off white lace that sticks fairly well.
S: Caramel malts and roasted characters, small amounts of bittering hops and a slight floral/herbal component.
T: Mirrors the nose; more caramelly than toasty, and not overly bitter...although the finish is a touch dry. Good toasted grain presence, bits of woody/nutty character.
MF: Fuller than most Oktoberfest beers I've enjoyed this year. Moderate body, low carbonation.
O: An ok offering, holds its own for the style I believe.

22 oz. unlabeled bottle gifted by local brewer, consumed at pre-BCS party.
One finger off-white head, medium dissipation with above average lacing. Clear light amber body, multiple streams of rising carbonation. Nose is fairly bready with a slight bit of roast and caramel, floral hops. Taste mirrors the nose, a fair bit of toast, some caramel sweetness in the middle, minimal hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium, decent effervescence. Good drinkability, but to be honest, not a very memorable beer.
