2.15/5  rDev -40.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Hazy medium copperish with a very small bubbly off-white head that quickly dissipates with minimal lacing.

Yikes. Aroma is sickly sweet. Honey, toffee, and caramel. Slight bready malts and a touch of green apple hinting at acetaldehyde.

Not quite as cloying as the aroma would let on, but still very, very sweet. Very sugary with a slightly bitter lightly toasted taste. Minimal earthy hops flavor if you really look hard for it.

Light/medium-bodied and moderately carbonated.

Pretty bad. Avoid.

Pours clear amber with a creamy white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel, grain and a hint of earthy hops.

The taste is of caramelized grain, nutty malt - sweet, but with a hint of noble hops in the finish.

It has a smooth, medium body.

A true-to-style O-fest. I will get more of this next fall!
