Pretty clear and mostly orange in color, this beige foamy headed beer also provides a bustling nose of nuttiness, dark fruit and crackery malt. Taste follows along ideally until a nuanced bitterness creeps in.

16 oz. can from Copper Vine (2.19) poured into a mug.

A- 1-finger, khaki head. Very clean, copper body with moderate carbonation. The head falls to the lightest foam at the edges of the glass and very light rings are left after each sip.

S- Sweet and malty. Sort of like Hawaiian bread with a touch of caramel and some spicy hops.

T- Toasted malts right off the bat. A little charred brown sugar or caramel. Hops are mild, providing a little, spicy balance. Still a little on the sweet side.

M- Clean and dry. Sweet flavor makes for a long finish at the same time. Light, spicy bite from the hops.

O- Decent O'fest. Could be a little cleaner and more refreshing for my tastes. Toasty and sweet finish just get a little overdone.

16 ounce can into dimpled mug, best before 12/13/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hops flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean in lager flavor as well, no esters present. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good oktoberfest style. Nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hops flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
