look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Amber with a slight dark hue with a head thats promising at first but dissipates rather quickly...

S - caramel and hazelnut are the main distinguishing smells.

T - tastes of malt, roasted and dry, with a fruitiness to it.

M - not too heavy and smooth with a light carbonation...

O - Despite having an Octoberfest in February, I can safely say that Im enjoying it. A cold night beer. I was expecting a heavier taste and mouthfeel but it has a nice balance of both to make it enjoyable. The foamy head was kinda dissapointing but the flavor really makes up for it and Im relieved when I get closer to the bottom of the glass...It could be old to which that might be why the head looses its body early but that really doesnt matter at this point. Overall, I like it and will having more in the near future, regardless of month.
