Mild bread, malt, kettle sugar and spice aromas. Not much hop on the nose and no diacetyl. It pours brilliant copper tinted amber under a very lightly tan tinted 3” white foam cap that fairly quickly dissipates. Rich malt flavors with slight kettle sugar sweetness, grainy spiciness, no fruit, finishing dry with a moderate hop bitterness. High end of medium on the body with slightly below medium carbonation.

S- Good carmel and malt smell.
L- Much carbonation with a nice creamy head. Nice looking amber orange color.
T- Nice malty taste with a sweet finish. Carmel taste coming through nicely. Hops come through in the end making a more complex feeling in which taste sticks around.
F- Not as smooth as many octofests due to the hoppy bite in the end.
O- A nice octofest.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Clear reddish amber in color with a thick khaki colored head that dissipates nice and slowly. Head has a bit of a creamy appearance. 4/5

S - Smells like fresh baked bread with a bit of dark stone fruitiness to it. A bit of grassy hops are present as well. Yeasty aroma comes out more as the beer warms. 3.75/5

T - Taste follows the smell with a bit more emphasis on the grassy hops. Lingering bitterness shows up on the back end. Increasing amount of granny smith apple flavor on the sides of my tongue as the beer warms, which throws me a bit. 3.5/5

M - Has a bit of a creamy texture to it. Not as crisp as expected. Lingers in my mouth for quite a long time. 3.25/5

O - The flavor was not as enjoyable as the smell but an enjoyable beer nonetheless. 3.5/5

Dark cedar with fine carbed head. Distinctive yeast. Toasted corn, balanced malt. My favorite US festbier.
