3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, light amber body with a thick, lasting white head. Sweet, inviting aroma with notes of caramel, malt, and a touch of earth. Smooth, sweet, and delicious! Caramel and malty sweetness up front fades only slightly to a mild alcohol warming. Finishes smooth. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Bulldog Uptown. Special Octoberfest celebration pimping the style of beer. A copper, maybe orange color with a basically non-existent head. Aroma is faint with a slight lean towards a hop/malt combo. Taste, at first, is actually better than expected. It doesn’t attempt anything original but pays homage to the style well. More malt than anything else. Probably worth ordering in this month but not otherwise.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straightforward for the style, with a sweet caramel malt flavor that turns a but thin and watery at the back of the palate, showing an intense lagery dryness, lingering on an unpleasant bitter note.

"surprised at the lower marks...this one is a definite standout in the style. rich inviting aroma before i even poured it. pretty spot in traditional with the style, but much richer and more flavorful than your average Octo. Well done!"
