3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Deep orange-amber beer. Gorgeous deep malty aroma, bread, light caramel and kettle caramelized/decocted richness. Herbal/spicy hop flavour over a soft toastiness. Flavour is well-balanced and very clean with sweet bready malts and softly spicy noble hops perfectly mingling. Perfectly quaffable... I could drink about a dozen of these.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured orange with slightly off white head. Aroma had notes of some grass, pine, moving into some biscuit and very slight spice note. Taste was a bit watered down, but had notes of grass, biscuit, some slight caramel and spice, finishing slightly bitter. Needed more maltiness for the style, but wasn’t bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bright and clear golden orange color with a just off-white head. Light nose of fall leaves, grains, whole wheat bread, a little bit of overripe apples and pears. A bit of a bite of hops near the finish, after a decent presentation of semi-sweet apples, wheat, slight vegetables and honey.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Hazy amber body. Sweet fruity alcohol dominated malt caramel aroma and flavor with hints of almonds and a suitable amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little above your average ’average’ Octoberfest brew, and gets tastier after a while, but not a market leader.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orangish-amber and slightly cloudy with a big off-white head. Aroma is of slightly toasted malts. Flavor is a rich malty, but very smopoth and not heavy - somewhat nutty with a bit of spice. This is easy to drink and I'd be willing to drink a lot of it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a orangeish hue, with a powerful frothy head that dies down after a few minutes. The taste is smooth and easy; a soft malty sweetness, some bitterness and floral hops, and some spice. A good drink. Easy and tasty.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Toasty and sweet malty aroma with some light nutty notes. The flavor has sweet malts, toffee, nuts, toast, and a light floral hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.
