12 oz bottle. SA pint.

A: Sweet tea colored with a finger of short-lived head.

S: Caramel, hazelnut, and some inviting fruitiness.

T: Caramel, plums, banana, toffee, and butterscotch.

M: Medium-light body, creamy finish.

O: It's one of the best in its style, period.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a nice dark amber color with a tiny head that dissipates and disappears very quickly. Smells of nice carimaly malts, but not overly strongly. The taste is dominated by the malt, which is a bit darker, but not that strong toward any specific flavor. Definitely tastes like an Octoberfest, but nothing too special. Carbonation seems right, and it does go down well. Overall, a slightly above average beer. One that is a beer worth drinking, but not one to seek out.
