3.6/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a light mahogany with very little head and zero lacing. Looks very thin even for an octoberfest. Lots of active carbonation.

Smell is pretty surprising. Pleasant bready malts up front with some fruit in there. sour cherries, plum, very sweet smelling and different for the style.

The taste is a weak interpretation of the smell. Strong bready malt backbone. Some tartness but it is more from the hops in the finish than any fruit from the nose. Somewhat watery and thin.

Mouthfeel is thin and a tad over-carbonated. Prickly in the tongue.

This beer is very drinkable and goes down easy. Not the tastiest interpretation of the style I've had but decent. Due to the light body and decent taste I would say this is very sessionable but not a beer I would reach for again.
