Sampled 10/9/2010 at the brewpub.

Pours orange/red, clear, decent lacing but very small head and no retention.

Aroma is of sweet toffee, malt, and corn.

Flavor is fairly complex but oddly dry and bitter. I taste corn, grape, caramel, and a little cardboard.

Body is medium/light, good carbonation level, and fairly drinkable.

Tick.

Transcribed from my notebook.

1.055 OG 26 IBUS 5.6 ABV

Clear amber, two finger head without lacing, scent of caramel, graham crackers and an underlying faint whiff of generic dried fruit and nuts "trail mix." Flavor is a clean blend of malt spectrum with only a few nutty accent points and a medium thick, smooth body. Better than an average Oktoberfest, but not in the same league as the absolute best ones either.
