Initially surprised by the ale in a lager dominated specialty. Nice color and great mouth feel but after that it fads. I'll stick to lagers for Octoberfest.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a sudsy 2” cream colored head that recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Color is a clear amber with moderate carbonation streaming.
Aroma: rich yeast bread malts, caramel, and some floral hop.
Mouthfeel: light bodied, crisp, with a mostly dry finish.
Flavor: caramel and toffee are dominate, with a bit of nuttiness as well. Bread dough and enough hop bite for some balance.
Overall: well done and appropriate to the style.
