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

A tall head of foam covers a super clear, light amber beverage before shrinking to a thin collar. Toasted caramel maltiness in the nose with mildly spicy hops and a sugary sweetness reminiscent of rock candy. Malty sweet upfront, maybe a little too sweet, and a light dose of earthy hops. Smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Not too shabby.

A: copper, decent, bubbly head.

S: nutty aroma.

T: Pumpkin hints and a slight bitterness, but zesty. One of the better Octoberfests in my opinion.

M: It's good but nothing overwhelming.

D: Nicely flavored and easy to drink.

There are better Octoberfests out there. But this one is still very good and it is especially nice because it is easy to find.
