Draft pint at the brewpub in Williamsburg MA

a: An attractive clear amber, no head by the time it arrived, white foam ring and a little lacing.

s: Light malt

t: Caramel malt, lightly hop balanced..

m: Lighter than some Octoberfests but perhaps truer to the style.

o: An easy drinking, quite tasty brew. A fine accompaniment to my turkey dinner.

3.66/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, grain, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character. Then some fruit and malt sweetness comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a decent beer for there are several others in the style that I would choose first.

2.83/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Very light fizzy head fades almost instantly hazy reddish amber color.

Nose fruity hops, apple pear like fruit, light syrupy, toasty reddish biscuit malts, light fruity esters more Belgian ale like than lager, light grassy herbal fruity hops.

Taste light hint of grainy malts, light fruity esters with hint apple and pear, hint of toasty malt, little syrupy, very light on overall malt, again more Belgian ale yeast rather than lager, very little lager if at all, light herbal grassy fruity hops with light bitterness. Finish has a nagging icky bitterness, fruity vegetative like hops, hint syrupy.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall bleh, pretty poor, a sad excuse for an Oktoberfest.
