12 oz. bottle, with best by date January 26, 2015 printed on the bottleneck. My second of the Big Eddy beers from Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., acquired a single bottle from the local beer store.

Poured into a Big Eddy snifter glass.

A - It pours a coppery burnt sienna orange body, almost similar to an IPA in appearance. About a finger of khaki head that recedes to a ring. Leaves behind some good sticky lacing. Looks pretty nice for what it is.

S - The aroma is pleasant also - notes of cream, vanilla, oak, wood, alcohol fumes, and some toasty caramel maltiness.

T - Taste follows the nose - notes of cream, vanilla, wood, oak, and alcohol fumes. A sweet caramel / toffee flavor, with some slight medicinal notes.

M - The feel is smooth and creamy. Sticky & viscous. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a decent expression of the style, especially given the brewery. I am once again surprised and I look forward to trying more beers in this series.

Apparently this is a 2013 Bottle?? Tastes great, so I'm reviewing it any how..

Pours an effervescent amber/copper color with 2+ fingers of tan head. No llacing or head retention

S: Faint breadyness & grassiness, metallic notes as well

T: Breadyness, a little bit of caramel & dryness up front, pear notes & jammyness, some leafy hop notes as well. Rich marmalade notes, leafy hops & toffee as this warms. Finishes bready with pears, & caramel plus leafy dryness

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation

Drinks pretty easy, I'm really enjoying this for what this is, a o'fest beer on steroids, this will serve as my place marker until I can get fresher. Will certainly buy this again!

Seem to be on an Oktoberfest quest this year so I picked up a four-pack.

Pours a lovely orange/brown color with a decent one finger head.

Aroma is of toasted malt with a hint of citrus hoppiness-quite pleasant.

Taste is quite pleasant with a nice caramel/marshmallow toasted nature and moderate sweetness quickly balanced by a little up front hops. Just enough hops to distract from the malty sweetness and finishes clean. A little light on mouthfeel, but overall a very good representation of the genre.

Definitely a standout Oktoberfest. Well above average.
