On-tap at Mellow Mushroom.
First SA Octoberfest of the year for me. Appearance is deep copper, with a white frothy head. Smells of malt and very light hops. Taste is a bit watery, but very balanced in flavor. Caramel and malty with a subtle spiciness.
Overall, this one leaves a little something to be desired. It seems like SA Octoberfest is a year-to-year thing, sometimes hit or miss. I'll be trying this one up against others of this style in the next few weeks. You can always count on this one for a good session beer for the season, though not my favorite by far.
Serving type: on-tap
