3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden straw in color. A really, really big foam head with really nice carbonation.
Good lacing around glass.
Sweet toffee malt aroma with a slightly spicy hop bouquet.
A sweet toffee caramel malt taste with just a little bit of roastiness. I also taste butterscotch. Biscuit finish.
Hops are present but just for bittering and balance, I don’t really pick up any hop character.
I deem this beer good tasting and would enjoy a few more but, alas, I have not.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The body has a deep golden to light amber color with very good clarity and lots of carbonation. Its head is just off white in color and fades down quickly to just a wispy thin layer which makes very little lacing. In the nose there are notes of pale light malt, biscuits and a very light touch of herbal/floral hops. There is also a light sweetness and something that reminds me of smartlys candy. It has a base of light roasted malt, grain and some biscuity flavors with mild sweetness. Hop flavor is light, mostly floral with some leafy and citrus notes on the finish. The finish also has the mildly sweet malt turning dry and crisp with more of a raw grain and husk character. The body has a light to medium feel and its carbonation is quite lively and a bit fizzy on the palate.

Bottle at home. Pours clear copper with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates, and light spicy hops. Flavor is melanoidin malt dominant, light hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate white head that disappears quite quickly. I get very little smell off this, just some hints of some corn and grains. This tastes more like a lager than most Oktoberfests to me, with some slight sweetness. Not a huge fan.
