Smooth but crisp at the same time. Hoppy for a "fest" beer. Traditional Octoberfest it is not.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 Pours a medium amber-brown color. Sweet aroma of cantaloupe, flowers, and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and creamy with moderate carbonation- finishes with a crisp rye bitterness. Flavors of melon, spice, caramel, rye, lemon, hops, and a light floral finish. Very crisp and delicious beer to close out the summer.

Nice Oktoberfest, hazed orange. Light aroma of nutty sweet malt. Slight citrus floral maybe. Very smooth fresh medium sweet not too much mineral or bitterness. Has the signature surly taste. Much better than the goose island I just had.

16 oz. can from TheHOFF43- thanks again, Kyle! Pours a cloudy darkish orange with a centimeter of off-white head that settles into a film and leaves some light lace in the glass. Looks the part. But it’s surprisingly bitter for the style, with a relatively big hop character (earth, pine, grass, light citrus), along with cracker, toast, rye, and bread. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, malty mouthfeel. Heavy and hoppy for the style.

Can @ Three Notch’d Tasting. Amber pour with a small white head. Aroma of mellow peppercorn, white toast. Some toffee and hints of chocolate. The taste is almost oaty. Plenty of grain. Mild marshmallow. A touch of pepper and caramel. Medium body, active carbonation. Decent.

Can scored through Hoff! Pours a hazy orangish/brownish color, with a thick fluffy head. Sweet light caramel malts on the nose. Some faint fruity hops. Taste is of biscuit, caramel malt, fruits, and grain. Medium mouthful, nice fruity flavor. Good beer!

Can pours a clear dark copper/orange with a medium khaki head. Aroma of floral and citrus, spicey, caramel and toffee malts, with biscuit and rye. Big spicey rye and biscuit, with hop spice and caramel and toffee malts. Yum!! My favorite octoberfest by far!
