Flavor: Nutty, malty, caramel, subtle earthy note, spice. Creamy "lingering toasty sweetness" as one expert put it.
Comment: Liquid bread in the best of all ways. Brilliant balance, texture and creamy finish.

Smooth with a little bite of caramel. Pretty darn tasty. Has a slight nutiness. Apparently, it's supposed to be THEE best Octoberfest. I don't know about that, but it's good.

Oh if it only had that slightly dry roastiness that I crave so much in the finish. Oh well, still an exemplary beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweaty honey color, not a lot of head at all. Looks more like the German version of a lager than the American version.
Aroma has some sweet candi sugars and cereal grains. A little corn syrup, with a hop-nose of pollen and hay. It’s mostly sweet, with just a touch of Euro-bitterness.
The flavor is corn syrup and. The hop is there, but it is very mild and is more like pollen and hay. Pretty consistent between aroma and taste. It’s a very mild, pleasant flavor. Buttery/biscuity notes. That flowery hop comes out after a few minutes.
Slick and buttery consistency. It’s a very pleasant beer, that gets better as you let it aerate and spread out a bit. Really changes as you get further down into the glass.

From a German beer pub a while ago, not many notes, sorry.
Bottled. Aroma: Caramel, hops, hay, malt. Appearance: I think I am reading "darker color with amber/some gold." Taste: Hops and malt but there is good balance with some underlying honey. Palate: Easy to drink but quite flavorful. Nice stuff.
