3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Craft. Pours turbid deep copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny hops. Tastes rich, caramel malty at the forefront, with hops, mild tannins and brown sugary notes, and more late caramel maltiness that makes this one come off like a vienna lager mixed with a marzen.

Modest hoppy aroma, lemon grows and lightly funky yeast. 7+ Average palate is pleasantly carbonated. 3+ Enjoyable. (Edit: This was an Oktoberfest? Really? Okay.) On tap at Coles, Buffalo

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a lightly hazed orange body with a lasting off-white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are grainy, lightly citrus (lemon), lightly herbal hops. No real melanoidin character. A bit hop driven, light bready notes from the malt. Flavors are malty, a bit of caramel and sticky malt notes. I wish it was a bit more vibrant, lively and crisp in character (water chemistry changes maybe?), Medium to lively bubbles, oddly heavy/fuller mouthfeel.
