Bottle not dated

This beer poured a crystal clear well-carbonated liquid that was orange/brown/amber in color. The head that was created off white to light toupe in color, fairly thick and creamy to the taste ant touch, some stickiness was noticed. There was some spotty lace throughout the glass, not like a true lace but more left over spots that drug to the bottom. The aromas that came from the glass were on the light side, but roasted malts and nuts were noticeable, some dry leafs, earthy ash, light fruit in the later aromas and finished off with a yeasty appeal to it. The flavors from this beer seemed to be bolder and more pronounced then the aromas. Tastes of cocoa, nuts, dark roasted malts, some leafs and ash were present all through each sip. Some sweet fruits were noticeable as it warmed in the middle of the sip, as well as some light herbal hops and dirt. But one thing was consistent was the all end sips were of yeast and yeasty nut bread. The aftertaste that was left was of bread yeast and a dry feeling on the tongue. The body was on the light to medium side. Interesting beer seemed to have lots of malt and earthy flavors that were pronounced and consistent all through each sip. An enjoyable beer and real easy to drink.

12 oz 2013 bottle served in an SA lager glass.
Pours an orange-amber color with a high amount of visible carbonation and a very good head..

The aroma is rather fruity for style, with hints of peach and citrus in addition to the solid malt base. The hops are not so fruity in tasting but do result in a good, bitter-sweet balance.
Medium-light body with well-chosen medium-high carbonation.

O: a solid, slightly Americanized Octoberfest.
