Poured into a pint glass, I got a thick, off-white head that was semi-creamy. The head stays with the beer in a thin layer, and there is modest lacing with the foam.
The color is a coppery, orange that is crystal clear. There is a constant stream of small bubbles that rise from the bottom of the glass, and keep the head solid. This beer is truly beautiful to look at.
The malt dominates the nose of this brew, but I also got a bit of caramel and a hint of spice. Deeper into the beer, I started to smell more of the hops.
Upon tasting, I found a malty, caramel taste on the front end. There is a bit of bready flavor in the center of the taste, and then a mild hoppy bitterness at the end. Great taste, classic balanced Octoberfest.
This brew coats your mouth. Moderate carbonation and the smooth flavors make this a great drinking beer.
This is my favorite Octoberfest that I have tasted this season.
