Clear, amber body with a thick, white head. Nutty, slightly sweet malt aroma with caramel, whole grain goodness. Just, clean malty goodness. The hop character is fairly mild for Piece, but crisp and refreshing. The body is round and full, without being thick and sticky. The carbonation is soft and mellow. If the beer were thinner, it would need to heavier to carry the flavors. The balance of clean, sweet malt and crisp, mild bitterness is great. The is one of the better beers I’ve had from Piece, it has character and rocks pretty well in the style.

Daught. Pours a murky deep copper hue with some head and little lacing. Bread yeast and malty nose. Good balanced malty flavor with a good clean finish.

Flavor is a bit sweeter than many Octoberfest beers and I really appreciate that. Definite caramel note. Much more restrained on the maltiness than many Oktoberfests as well. I usually don’t like this style but this is one I did enjoy.

On tap at piece under the name ’octoberfist’. P is a clear pumpkin orange w little head and no lacing. Nose is harvest malts , wheat and some pumpkin. Taste is similar ; light spicing over a wheaty base... A bit underwhelming.
