It pours a dusky, harvest orange with a generous, barely off white, soapy head. Taste is smooth and balanced; with malt, grains, some mild bittering hops and roasted character. Accents of lemon come through, but the caramel is pronounced.

The mouthfeel of this beer had a medium body with a bit of dryness. It's not quite a traditional Octoberfest style, but still a damn good beer.
