2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drought. Light amber color with small whitish foamy head, faint grassy aroma, fizzy, very little hops, abrupt finish. Not very remarkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz t.o. bottle. Deep amber color. Thin white ring. Malt nose, toasted grains, vanilla oak. Sweet flavor. Toasted malts, white oak, vanilla, buttered toast. Light finish. Well balanced, nicely lagered. Very light hop character, lends to style very well. (3831)

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Barley husk aroma, hint of apple. Light orange or very dark yellow, very bubbly for this style. Mildly bitter, some malt sweetness. Very soft and slick all around, much too light on the malt to be a marzen beer, but an okay, sessionable product in it’s own right.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A decent but middling version, quite a bit of biscuit-y and malty goodness. Not super exciting.

rich malty aroma, there’s a creamy quality to the aroma but also a very faint phenolic note. beautifully clear copper hued color. reasonable healthy head. very malt centric. a touch of a tangibles. clean finish. solid medium body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty, nutty, slightly sweet with a hint of caramel. Smooth and full with a lingering finish and a hint of hops bitterness. Balanced overall.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, screw-top. Nose very sweet and malty with light spice, a little grassy citrus but not much, maybe some nice Munich. Pours bright clear orange with a dense off-white head. Taste floral and a bit too sweet, there’s some nice but faint hop backing, light spice therefrom, light bitterness and a light-medium body with a thinner malt than expected -- but if there’s Munich here, it’s nice, and if not, well, fooled me.

Good tasting beer, not too bitter, that leaves a slightly foamy head that quickly dissipates.

Bottle. A friend putting us up for a couple days had this in his fridge, and gave us one for the road. I find the aroma to be very subtle, almost can’t smell anything. Taste is mild, not bitter at all. Color is a light orange.
