Wow! I am surprised I like this beer now. I first tried it a year ago and was unimpressed. However, I have tried many beers in that year and can now say SA Octoberfest will be in my fridge all season. I've had this beer many times this year so I think this is accurate for me:
Poured into my Friar Tuck pint glass
A.Pours a copper-red color with a 1/2" off-white head. Very fine lacing. Head retention is about 30 seconds.
N. Smells malty with some hop aroma although I can't place the hops (my nose is not that talented yet). Smells like other Oktoberfest beers.
T. Initial taste is malty and bready and some hop bitterness is present at the finish which refreshes the palate for the next drink.
M. Moderate carbonation and medium body make this beer enoyable.
D. Overall a solid beer in my opinion. Certainly an Oktoberfest that has earned a place in my fridge. The SA website lists the ABV at 5.3% which helps make the beer very drinkable and sessionable. That being said I'm off for another!
