I drank this from a pint glass...

The beer pours an amber/ copper color with a thick egg-shell colored head. It smells of toasted caramel malt, butter and toffee. The taste is big on toffee, with earthy hops bread and caramel and a slightly smoky bitter finish. It has a medium body with low carbonation and a bit of a dry finish. This was a decent Octoberfest, has more of a bitter side than most which I did enjoy.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Nikki's Liquors in North Providence, Rhode Island.

A- Pours a golden-orange clear body with a generous 3" head that reduces to a white film and leaves a little lacing.

S- Nutty and malty with a vanilla-caramel backbone. Fresh and inviting.

T- Starts with a sweet vanilla caramel malt flavor and ends with a nice citrus hoppy finish. Tasty and balanced.

M- Medium-heavy body, medium low carbonation. Smooth.

Overall, I enjoyed this one. Balance was the big winner here. You get a big malt character typical of octoberfests, and just enough hops to compliment the malt.
