I’m surprised at the low rating. I think it’s by far Summit’s best regular beer (even if it is a seasonal). I realize that may not be saying much, but I never buy any mainline Summit beers except this. It’s got a real nice carmel appearance and flavor. The high ABV is kind of nice too :)

12 oz. bottle from a friend’s house. Pours a mostly clear orange with a small off-white head and some visible carbonation bubbles. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, spiced cracker, faint fruit, sugars, straw, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Well-executed Oktoberfest.
