Pours an amber, orange color with a fluffy, white 2 finger head that dissipates quickly leaving little to no lacing in a 16oz pub glass.

There is not much to smell on this one, maybe making out some sweetness from the malts ever so slightly.

Taste is sweet up front then it transitions into a mild spiciness that lingers into an aftertaste that hangs around.

Mouthfeel is nice and bubbly but a little on the thin side.

Overall, a really nice beer. This is the 2nd Octoberfest that I have had this season and I like this one more. I hope to get a few more this season and see where they stack up.
