from a bottle into an imperial pint glass. (Tasted side-by-side with Millstream and Brooklyn Ofests.)

A: Pumpkin copper, 2 finger khaki head.
S: Pretty sweet, a little spice and nutmeg, some floral/citrus hops
T: Follows nose, a little more pronounced sweetness (toffee) and breadiness, a tingly buzz on the tongue toward the end with the floral and citrus hops.
M: A little heavier than is ideal for the style to me. Dry and crisp.

Overall: On its own, I think it's pretty good, and I'd drink it again. It doesn't all come together quite as well as the ideal Ofests out there...and it suffered in comparison with the Millstream.
