Oktoberfest, take 4

Goose Island Oktoberfest
Pours clear dark amber, with a serious light tan head. Smells of malt and bread. Mmm. 

IBU is only 17, but I should’ve guessed that given their ads Goose Island couldn’t resist the hops. And there they are. Not too offensive, and after a few sips they mellow a bit. Hint of banana in there, plus something I remember from our Japan trip, though I can’t recall if it was a beer or something else. 

Overall, better than I was expecting. I had money on tossing it after the first few gulps. Was nice to be wrong.
