3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Winking Lizard. Pours a dark gold (almost copper) with a generous white head. The aroma is quite nice with heavy notes of honey and toffee accompanying the floral hops with a mildly sweet background from the malts. The taste is also pleasing, as it is develops a fruity taste to accompany aroma. Medium bodied and finishes dry. I really enjoyed this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 0.5 L bottle purchased locally. Aroma is rich with malt with a little sweetness and maybe a hint of orange peel and something slightly mango peppery in there in a good way. Deep golden color with a big off-white head, crystal clear. Flavor is bready rich malt with some of that toasty malt from the aroma. Some sweetness but balanced with the slight hint of bitterness. Clean and drinkable. Makes me want some bratwurst.

Draft (or draught..whats the difference?)
Beautiful orange color with small white head..I could drink this all day. Lisa, working at the Flying Saucer, makes this more enjoyable.

Nice golden brown pour with a medium white head that reduces pretty fast. Not much on the nose for me. Some sweet malt. Medium body. Clean and refreshing finish. Really like this beer.

Nice maltiness to this beer. A bit too sweet
for an Oktoberfest, but still good.

Poured a deep copper color with a huge head that stuck around for a long time. Has a sweet and malty aroma that smells like caramel. Delicously complex flavor and very well balanced Marzen. I can taste the floral hops, sweet malts that taste a bit like caramel and vanilla, and some spice, citrus, and woody notes that make this beer one of the best Octoberfest beers I’ve ever had. Wonderful and highly recomended.

Pours a rich copper with tall, persistant off-white head. Nutty aroma. Good malty flavor without being unbalanced or too heavy. Smooth finish. Like an amber ale without the hops; not a complex beer but one well suited for its purpose.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is combination fruit, honey and buttered toast. Quick open head with light amber color. Flavor hoppy with pine and grapefruit predominant, some honey-fall fruit, maybe peach. Palate is light, with some caramel and tartar. This is a good October beer, saved by the hops from being mediocre.
