This is one of my favorite seasonal brews from one of my local brewers. Looks like you would expect from an Octoberfest , but with a hoppier aroma. Flavor is well balanced, and always reminds me of fall

PorterPounder (7539) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Fort Myers, Fl. - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Sparkly, medium orange pour with a soapy white head. Grainy, peppery aroma with hints of corn. Flavor has some wort-like essence to it with some peppery notes, some corniness and just a hint of ripening vegetable funkiness. Mouthfeel is slightly dry. Uninspiring.

tillmac62 (688) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2015
BBD 1/21/16. Slightly hazy amber pour. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention. Light nose of toasted biscuit with a caramel undertone. Rather bready. Heavy light body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a weak burst in the finish. The flavor profile is rather good and a bit atypical for the style. Intensity and balance are well done, but complexity is outstanding. Toasted malts yield a bready background similar to pumpernickel. The middle delivers a subtle floral bitterness and a plum/raisin undertone. As the finish approaches, the dark fruit aspect really shines as caramel cascades into the finish. The finish is clean with a subtle crispness.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber color with small beige colored head. Aroma of cereal grains and caramel malt. Sweet malt flavor with some barley notes. Straightforward but good.

Nice take on the Oktoberfest style. Crisp, just right amount of sweetness and hop bitterness. Very good lager.
