Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, caramel malt, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Marzen/Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight earthy malt, slight sweet malt, slight hops, and slight pale malt. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and blend.

It's been raining off and on all day today and an Octoberfest just seemed like it would hit the spot. So when at Blind Tiger after work I was happy to learn that they had an Octoberfest on tap. Sampled it, enjoyed it, picked up a growler. I'm using my dimpled mug for this one, it seems appropriate. Pours a nice burnt orange with some hints of red in it. Very clear beer, kudos to the brewery for their process. Minimalist head that quicky fizzes away. I'm not seeing a lot of carbonation in this one. Solid malty nose with the lager yeast characteristic immediately present, though there I kind of wish that it had a little more impact. No real carbonation in the mouthfeel either, which is kind of disappointing. A little bit watery in the flavor profile, but the malt bill on this is delicious, and quite sweet. Taste reminds me of cereal, kind of like a combination of wheaties and frosted flakes, maybe even bran flakes. You could also go the other direction and say pancakes with maple syrup, though the sweetness is more like honey and less like maple syrup. The hops in this beer take a big backseat in this beer, and they're only there to keep the beer balanced, which it is, and quite nicely at that. Overall a solid, though unspectacular, example of the Octoberfest style. Fitting beer for a rainy day of football and fall.
