On tap. Pours orange with a short lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of earthy hops, caramel and biscuit malt, some hints of cherry. Body is medium and crisp. Earthy, herbal hops dominate bready malt and caramel on the palate. Long hoppy finish. Tasty brew but too hoppy for the style.
Serving type: on-tap

Bought this to try in a mixed six last June, so it was a leftover from August 2012. Didn't think that would make much difference since it's a low hop Octoberfest. Now I see it has been retired, so this may be one of the last BA reviews of it.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: nearly clear amber, half finger thick white head dissipated quickly to slight surface foam and traces of lacing.
s: mild caramel malt
t: Light tasty caramel malt. Dry finish.
m: Moderate, nice heft for an Octoberfest.
o: One of the better Octoberfests I have had. Always enjoyed Magic Hat's Number 9, and its the only brewery I have ever toured. Glad to see they make a fine Fall brew too. Make that "made" since it has been retired. Too bad.
