Sample at the lodge. Slight grain aroma. Deeper amber color. Big Sweet gain malty taste. Much better than the regular October fest.

my least favorite beer i think from my little fall beer smattering last night. its overly alcoholic, this kind of strength doesnt belong in the style, and the addition of all the extra sugar to get it there is even more inappropriate in this style. this beer is orange and clear and largely flat, with a nose of sweet malt and dextrose. there is a caramel element, even butterscotch candy, and there is a fair degree of hop bitterness here too. the whole thing seems overly exposed on the alcohol front though, and with the leftover sugar its like a girly drink of some kind, not a beer. i gave this the benefit of the doubt when i bought it, but that was maybe a mistake. this is pretty bad overall, a poor attempt to be clever and different. these beers are traditional for a reason. skip this one for sure unless you want a booze bomb dipped in corn sugar.

This beer is a solid offering from leinies. It looks fantastic with a vibrant autumn hued copper color. Flavor profile is typical oktoberfest, but hoppier. Caramel and biscuit with a nice spicy and earthy hop profile. Has an orange citrus flavor as well. A touch of toasted malts.

Clean and crisp. Larger bodied. Very easy to drink for the abv.
