500 ml bottle. Pours light brown sugar color with a small tan head. Smells of sweet caramel. Tastes like a caramel apple with a little crisp hop flavor. The perfect fall beer that’s refreshing and tasty while still remaining a beer. One of my all time favorites.

Bottle. Nice cap. Clear orange/amber color with big rocky head. The aroma is of toasty malt, with just a hint of hops. The taste starts off very malty, with toasty caramel notes and enough bitterness to balance. It still finishes with a bittering dryness balanced with a lingering maltiness. I like it.

cloudy orange/amber color, large frothy head that dissipates quickly, malty-spicy aroma, a bit of candy sweetness, some fruitiness; flavor is malty with touches of spiciness, a fruity background, a precise and strong sweetness - but not cloying, flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, a bit tingly with a decent texture

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really the standard by which I compare O’fests. Deep, deep gold color with orange highlights and a white head. Noble hop aroma with plenty of malt and just a slight sulfury note. Flavor is intense malt but with a clean finish and noble hop character. Beautiful balance of rich maltiness without being cloying and without the caramel flavors that so many US brewers insist on putting in their beers. What a great beer.

A very smooth and enjoyable beer. Mild malt bread aroma with a good tan head with no noticeable lacing. Flavor was very smooth and slightly silky with a nice dry finish. Nice clean easy drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Faint aroma of malts and citrus. Pours an expected amber, with one finger foamy offwhite head. Taste is very malty, with a nice bitter tinge from the hops to balance things out. Touches of caramel sweetness and grass accentuate the finish. Medium body, drinks smoothly with lively carbonation.
