Crystal clear bright amber/orange hue. 1/2 inch of egg shell head. Pungent nose of noble european hops. Toasted buttered biscuit with an herbal and spicy scent.

Incredibly clean for such a rustic smelling nose. Sweet buttered roll up front followed by slightly overdone toast. Rolls in a spicy herbal hop bite which balances more than it betters. Clean, smooth mouthfeel, with slightly lower than average carbonation. Very very very damn good! Better put a 6 of this away before it all sells out!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A-dark amber with a thin light tan head 

S-burnt bitter grains with a touch of dark honey. 

T-comes in with a fairly decent taste of bitter dark grains. Has a touch of honey. I like it. It's definitely darker and more harsh than I like my octoberfest styles.

M-high carbonation with a watery finish

O-well it's not a bad beer. It's just not good if you're really looking for  an octoberfest. It's a bit darker tasting
