12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Consumed in October during my own mini-Oktoberfest.
A- A bit of carbonation is visible through a transparent, dark copper body with a small off-white head that quickly dies down to a flimsy film.
S- Toasty, rich malts. Earthy as well.
T- Similarly, this brew leads with toasty malts, and then transitions to a earthy, bitter hop finish.
M- Mid bodied. Low carbonation. Semi-bitter finish.
O- My own mini-Oktoberfest consisted of a blind side-by-side-by-side tasting of Oktoberfests by Sam Adams, Saranac, and Dundee. Somewhat surprisingly, Sammy Adams didn't take the gold. I'm not very well versed in Oktoberfests, but Sam Adams seemed to be about an average Oktoberfest and only somewhat better than average overall.
