Surprising found this at Chameleon's in Mount Vernon, IA. "Pours a clear amber with a thin white head that disappears immediately. Smell of sweet malts, with just a hint of hops. A little watered down. Taste has malt, caramel, and some hops with just a tad of bitterness. I would say this would be a very average Octoberfest; nothing stands out.

A: Warm ambery copper with a slight orange hue. Clear with a few bubbles rising to a medium size off-white head. Settles fast, but okay retention and quite alright lace.

S: Bready malt with hints of crust & toasty grain. Ghost hint of hops. Very faint fruity esters. Light and clean aroma overall. Sweet & bready malts grow just a tad as the brew warms.

T: Quite a bit more forward on the minty & herbal hops – especially on the flavor more so than bitterness. Just a step behind is the malt backbone. More malty sweet than nose, a bit nutty too, but still bready with crust and toasty grain notes. Hops get a touch spicy in the middle and a bit of soapy resin comes out in the finish as the malts fade.

M: Medium body with balanced & finely textured carbonation. A small bit of chew & a balanced finish.

D: Looks the part & smells alright. A bit light on malts, and heavy on the hops. But hey, they are west coast brewers. And the hops do taste German. Okay for an O’fest / fall ale.
