Look: light, slightly orange-y Caramel color
Smell: caramel, very light hops
Taste: lightly malty flavor, sweet but not too sweet, hops perfectly balance the beer
Aftertaste: can definitely taste the malt with the aftertaste but it doesn't linger terribly long
Overall: I always eagerly anticipate this beer release in the fall. It is my favorite octoberfest brew. I am so looking forward to this years release!

I dont think there can be better. Felt the hint of fall in the air and cracked open one. Ahh just like last years flavor. Almost like dinking that Fall feeling. Sweet flavor of spices and a very pleasant lingering after taste. Thumbs up Sam!!

I love this brew. It has a dark caramel color with medium carbonation and light lace all the way down. The smell has a nice balance of sweet malts and hops. This is a smooth beer with a light mouthfeel which leads to a superb drinkablility. I highly recommend trying this brew you will definetly not dissapointed!

One of my favorite beers. When September rolls around I am going from store to store waiting for it to hit shelves. This beer is perfect for almost any time, drinking sitting on the porch in the cool air or enjoyig a slice of pizza with a nice glass at your plate's side.
