A tasty octoberfest. Different from ones I’ve had from the states. Appears as it ought to. Smells good, malty with a little bit of a surprising little saison-ish hint. Tasted similar to the smell. The steeped grain taste really came forward the more I drank. It’s a style you enjoy, and this one is a bit above the rest. Buy it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark Amber with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of light malt but not much on the nose. Nice, bright malt and aggressive carbonation dissipating to front of the tongue bitter but mild hops and a light bready finish. I could drink so many of these on a crisp fall day, tailgating in Athens. And I probably will.

A little too sweet. Got the good caramel and a solid body/carb. It’s not my favorite style in its traditional form but it hits the marks the style dictates.
