Similar to Sam Adams Octoberfest though not as sweet. Golden to brown in color. Nice caramel taste with some hops present. Good carbonation.

This review is for the draft version. Bought bottles to go and VINEGAR was present when I opened them at home.

It pours a nice dark amber copper color with a nice off white head that was about .5". The head cleared quickly and the lacing was alright; mostly spotty. The smell was a little odd to me, but enjoyable. This will sound weird but I got a baking soda and vinegar smell along with nutty, wheat. I also got a bit of a vinegar and baking soda taste from this beer which wasn't necessarily bad because it was very subtle, but it was odd. I also got some nutty flavors and a wheat back end. It had a decent mouthfeel but nothing overly special. I enjoyed this beer in a slightly odd way, but I don't know if I'll buy it again.
