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.
