look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: A light copper/amber look with minimal head.

S: There is a mild caramel aroma. A very crisp smell that doesn't linger.

T: There is a definite hoppiness to this beer that you don't find in most Octoberfest style beers. For those of us that enjoy hoppy beer (as I do), this is a nice note to a full flavored beer. There is a slight bitterness, but the flavor doesn't stay on the tongue for long.

M: This is very easy on the mouth. It is a full bodied, full flavored beer that doesn't hit it hard with overly strong notes. A light bitterness that disappears quickly from the tongue.

O: A nice change for an octoberfest style beer. I love the hop taste that it ads. A solid beer that I would definitely drink again, though I don't know that I would actively seek it out.
