3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
had this at Sam Adams Octoberfest.
Poured from the tap into a dimpled much.
The color is a clear orange/amber with a slight foamy head and no lacing.
The smell is hoppy, with a slight toffee flavor and a pepper spice flavor.
The taste is again hoppy with some nice english hop bitterness at first. There is some nice smooth malty flavor that establishes itself with a nice pop of sweetness. An interesting peppery flavor in the back as it goes down and it leaves a nice hoppy bitterness that stays with you then goes away.
The feel of this beer is a nice light body that goes down clean. It is pretty drinkable and goes down smooth.
