Poured from a 12 Fl. Oz. bottle into a pint glass. BB JAN 31, 2015.

Look: Pours an amber body with a thin off white head.

Smell: Thin aroma of earthy nutty malts.

Taste: Biscuity, toasty, nutty. Slightly sweet caramel.

Feel: Smooth, yet relatively light. Not quite watery, but not a ton of body.

Overall: Not a bad tasting Octoberfest. Pretty decent overall.

I was expecting a better effort. Not a whole lot of flavor, lacking any malt undertones. Take the label off and it would be an average amber ale.

Not the best not the worst Octoberfest I had. Tastes like a regular amber lager. No significant notes. Lacing is not to bad. loses the head quickly
