12oz bottle into DFH shaped pint. Abel, I stole this from your fridge last time I was over. Thanks muchacho.

A: Pours an even amber brown with a couple fingers of bubbly light tan head. Small patches of lace were left down the glass as the head disappeared into a faint collar.
S: Fruit juice, toasted grains, mild spiciness, and a hint of honey. Sweet, malty, fruity, and spicy.
T: Malty, bready and spicy with notes of fruit juice, toasted grains, orange peel and mild hops. The finish is sweet and the aftertaste is nutty and malty. Hints of apple juice.
M: Medium-full body, very slick and syrupy (but not cloying) mouthfeel, with low and smooth carbonation.
O: Solid all-around but not my favorite. Very affordable and drinkable though.

You can tell it's an "Octoberfest" style beer, but wow it tastes very watery to me.
