Bottle into Sam Adams sensory glass.

Pours a crystal clear deep copper venturing into amber, with a one-finger creamy white head on top. Decent retention, and some light lacing. Loads of streaming bubbles.

Nose is sweet, almost intensely so, with a sharp fruity edge. A bit of an herbal hop note

Taste is big and malty; big, fruity caramel sweetness with just a bit of toasty underlying breadiness, even a hint of breadcrust in there underneath the bright fruit. Herbal hop character provides an interesting and unexpected balancing aspect on the dry-ish finish, turning earthy and lingering awhile on the palate.

Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied, sharpish carbonation, surprisingly dry on the finish.

Nicely drinkable and balanced, though I tend more towards the Ayinger-model of paler, grassier oktoberfests as a personal preference. Does nothing to take away from the fact that this is a pretty nice beer.

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis

Appearance - Clear copper colour with an average size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, hay/straw/grass

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and light hops. There is also some tea, straw/hay and a grassiness.

Overall - Not my favourite style, but a pretty decent effort. Not something I'd seek out again, but worth a try.
