Poured bottle into glass. 5.6% abv

Appearance- Cloudy orange amber with a two finger slightly off white head that dissipates.

Smell- Lemon along with some fresh caramel malt and honey.

Taste- Rich caramel malt flavor. Toasted cracker tastes goes on to a mild bitterness as far as this style goes. A short and simple flavor profile but quite lively.

Mouthfeel- Medium-thin with great carbonation. Crisp.

Overall- A near perfect octoberfest in my opinion. So flavorful. The malt taste in this beer is great. Well done and a must try oktoberfest!

Poured from the bottle into a ghandi-bot tulip.

A: Beautiful dark orange with compact head that dissipates into a very thin ring.

S: Malty, big caramel malts. Beautiful. Yeast and hops are mild and very much in the background.

T: Follows nose and is perfect velvety creamy and very slightly slick on the palate. Roasted honey sweet like notes and some of the hops present as tea-like.

M: creamy, medium full end of the spectrum. finishes with that tea-like note and then goes creamy and sweet but never cloying.

O: very nice and perfect for fall.
