Listed as Roktoberfest at the brewery and on their Twitter/FB pages. I'd submit an update, but, sadly, that usually seems to go nowhere on this site.

Appearance: Darkened amber body with a slightly off-white head yielding a few scattered flecks of lacing.

Smell: Bready, delicately toasted maltiness with a little sniff caramel, orchard fruit, and spice.

Taste: Bready maltiness with a light, sweet taste of toasted, caramel-dipped grains. Minute nuttiness throughout. Fruity hint of crunchy apples. Earthy, spicy hops, lightly bitter. Finishes fairly dry, reasonably crisp, and with a lingering maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Good level of flavor and overall drinkability. Sure, it may be an ale, but it still maintains the spirit of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Another gem from our friend's way out to the west, I was thrilled to be able to try a few more from them. This seasonal was new to me and I have to say it held its own. Nice pour with a could orange and amber color and a smooth, clean white head of lacing that really seemed to do the job quite well.

Aroma is light, lots of caramel and bready malts that are covered in a thin mask of sugar. Hints of light bittering throughout and a touch of spice fill the air. Very light feels here with lots of carbonation, it really does not let the flavor really jump out at you as much as I would like. Dark sugars, caramel malts and lots of grain are really the main factors here. Thin finish with a little pop of grass at the end made it very drinkable.

Overall not bad, it was not a show stopped but I would not mind it again.

Serving type: on-tap
