Pours out to a half-inch off-white head that falls to a thin but permanent foam layer. Not much lacing. Color is amber-gold. Aroma is toasty Munich malt with a bit of grassy-spicy hops. Flavor is malt-forward and toasty as expected but not as round and sweet as a typical O-fest, possibly due to it being about 1.5% lower than the typical abv for the style. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, slightly astringent. Overall a solid brew but without the kick I was expecting.

My favorite fall beer but it's out way too early. Beer cola. Truthfully it's the only October beer I've ever had. I drank Coors light exclusively for twelve years then grew up by trying new beers every once and awhile. I'm sipping one now and sad that it will be in the 80's tomorrow!
