12oz. bottle served in my Harpoon Octoberfest mug. Best by February notched on the label. Poured a translucent copper with a one inch off-white cap dimpled with tiny bubbles. Head eventually dissipated into a soapy swirl. Some lacing, but weak legs. Nose is caramel malt and cereal grains. Taste follows nose with a little hops in the mix. Finish is not as sweet, and much dryer than most Oktoberfests. Mouthfeel is between light- and medium-bodied and evenly carbonated. Easy drinking and one of my personal favorites for the style.

First off, this beer has one of the best heads I've ever experienced. Very nice consistency, long lasting; it's mouth-watering creamy goodness!

The nose is a light combination of malt, hops, and a slight fruitiness.

There is a pronounced pleasant light hoppiness all through the taste on this one. Fade is a nice combination of hops and malt.

Definitely would drink this again.

A - Pours cloudy brown with a finger thick head. Head dissipates to a light lacing and cap.

S - Banana bread and caramel with a light background of hops.

T - Brown sugar to start followed by bready hops. Citrus comes in at the very end.

M - Medium body with the right amount of carbonation.

O - This is a nice easy drinker, great flavor and feel. This is a good fall season beer to have through the night with a couple of friends. Drinking this invokes the feeling of a cool autumn evening. I have also had it on tap and it was delicious then as well.
