Code dates to July 9, 2012. Consumed August 2, 2012.

A - Brilliantly clear deep orange with large off-white head that settles into a rocky appearance. Carbonation appears moderate. Lacing very prominent. Beautiful.

S - Strong aroma of toasted sweetbread obvious immediately upon opening the bottle.

T - Complex melanoidins on bready malt with intricate dark sugars. Very faint hint of... smoke? Transitions into a modest german-type hop middle with the faintest tingling spiciness of rye. Fades into a bone dry finish with a subtle lingering dark fruit.

M - Medium to heavy body, medium carbonation. Excellent.

O - I want more!

12 ounce bottle, cap say's "Life in a hurry makes everything blurry"

This is called "Ourtoberfest" by Magic Hat. Orange/amber in color, sweet malty scent, slightly citrus in smell and taste!
Head wasy creamy/frothy white, laced glass nicely.

A good autumn time brew, not actually like a regular German Marzenbier/Oktoberfest, but very drinkable.

Perfect Autumn Brew.
Had this at a nice dinner potluck with friends in Early October.

Straight From bottle, has a nice thickness and warm taste. very much like a toffee and cinamin with a slight malted hoppy finish, goes down so smooth. Perfect for a Crisp autumn night with friends.
