look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

1 pint, 6 floz. Pint Glass.

A: Dark red with two finger off white fluffy/creamy head. Lacing is good.

S: Aroma is slightly metallic. Malts and hops are present. Almost smells burnt like.

T/M: First thing that hits me is a kind of metallic taste. After that this brew gets very malty and sweet. Burnt grains and hops are used. Also kind of crisp. Good tasting Octoberfest.

D: Very average beer in general. Their are much better octobers out there. Not bad though, just average. I actually try to have this brew a few times during the season.

Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - deep amber color with a nice fluffy 1" off-white head that receded down to a skim. Leaves decent lacing.

S - smell is very faint, but I can pick up some sweet malt, caramel and fruit. No hop presence.

T - toasted and sweet malt with a little bready taste. Also some fruit and a slight bit of hops at the end.

M - medium bodied and smooth with a decent amount of carbonation.

D - drinkability is high. Very good autumn session beer.
