3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes (10/15/15). A middle-of-the-road Oktoberfest that seems to be made with more love than a lot of fall "seasonals" that get pumped out every Autumn. The malt sweetness is definitely present, but in an appropriate way for the style, and it finishes clean, slightly sweet, and with a hint of lager sulfur.

Bottle at America on Tap
Slightly hazy deep golden color. Aromas of sweet bready malt and plenty of diacytyl. A bit too sweet and the butterscotch doesn’t do this style any favors.

Nutmeg and smoked almond add more depth of flavor than most amber Oktoberfest beers have, really blending well with the semi sweetness. Just enough hop to bring about a clean finish. Unique. I may sound like a homer but this is a nice take on the style and is the best I’ve tried.

Yeast alcohol aroma, deep orange-amber color. A little thin on the pallet but smooth. OK flavor but not outstanding.

Orange hint to pour, think head. Sweet light brown sugar nose, biscuit. In the mouth, fairly sweet, a bit mores so than others in the style. Mild but notable bitterness in the finish. Decent but doesn’t blow me away.

Bottle from Meditrina. Clear amber with flat head and lace. Mild aroma of caramel leaves hay booze. Medium toasted caramel nuts and biscuits with mineral woody bitterness. Sweet without cloying. Quite dry for style (probably a little too cold). Medium body. Very good.

Draugt at Bukowskis in Boston. This is a great Marzen with lots of malty sweetness.

Draft. This is a surprisingly sweet and refreshing oktoberfest. This beer provides a nice off-white head that laces throughout the entire beer. Light to moderately bodied, this beer has extra character from a grittiness that feels as if there’s a slight unfiltered aspect to this beer. With the flavor being mostly malt based, there is a nice sweet texture to the taste, with notes akin to Fruity Pebbles. While there is a high level of sweetness, it’s not too sugary. Solid beer.

Tap. Slightly sweet flavor with apparent alcohol notes. Ok overall but not my favorite Oktoberfest beer.
