pours a rusty orange.aroma is caramel malt,raw dough and wet wood.flavor is upfront sweet malt and then progresses to a dry hop finish.medium body with soft carbonation.average octoberfest but the one downfall is the dry hop finish.kinda reminds me of a kid when you chewed on paper.thats the kinda of dryness you get from the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a clear red colored body yielding a one finger white head slowly dissipating into the body leaving a film of a head. No carbonation is seen rising and no lacing is left.
The smell had a smokey maltiness with some light nuts here and there.
The taste was basically has the same flavorings from the smell.
The palate sat a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable.
Overall, this is not a bad beer, yet nothing spectacular, standard red ale, but probably only get it again on tap.

355ml bottle. Pretty generic Oktoberfest. Some nice malts and herbal hops, but nothing that makes it stand out.
