Pours a dark amber color with a modest head. Malt and rye aroma. Full bodied beer supported by a nice malt backbone. Everything you want out of the Oktoberfest style, including a toasted bread note on the finish.

Much like the big box retailers, the beer industry has caught on that they must release their seasonal beers at least 2 seasons before the actual season for that beer. Pumpkin / Fall / Oktoberfest beers have been 0n the shelves since late July around here (Thank you Boston Beer Co. for that one).

Poured into a Dogfish traditional oversized snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium reddish amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a spiral of sheer wispy surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Toasty malt that's pretty sweet-smelling. Bready, grainy.

T- Somewhat sweet at first with more toasty malt character leading to a dry finish. Very easy to drink as it's so clean and quite refreshing.

M- Semi-crisp and clean with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I'm not a fan of Oktoberfests as they can be too sweet but this one has a nice dryness to complement the biscuity sweetness of the malt. Definitely one of the better of the style that I've had.
