Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Lake Ella - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium-dark copper with a thin but long lasting off0white head - bit of lacing. Aroma has some nuttiness, hint of molasses. Flavor has some sweet caramel notes, a bit of date sweetness, just a hint of ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel is crisp. Overall a solid Oktoberfest.

12oz bottle pours amber with an off white head. Aromas of carmel some straw and a bit of toffee. Flavor is sweet and malted a bit of water but not to much. Body is medium and finish is evenly balanced

Pours a light amber color. Aroma of a cheaper beer. Needs much more flavor.

9/26/11. 12oz bottle. Clear dark amber pour, nearly red, with a big, creamy khaki head that lasts and laces a ton. Plain malty aroma - a bit grainy, some caramel, and a dash of metal. Sweet malty flavor with a touch of astringent citrus in there as well as more metal and some sort of off-putting aftertaste that I can’t quite identify. Meh.

Poured into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Clear golden yellow in color. Couldn’t make much of a head, but the 1/8 inch that is there sticks around pretty long.
2.5 S: Metallic and grainy. Not what I want in the style.
3.0 T: Biggest taste is buttery diacetyl. Cannot figure out if this would be a decent O-fest beer without the diacetyl because it is so strong. Nonetheless, it is decent in terms of taste, just not what I want.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good carbonation and very smooth. Easily the best aspect of the brew.
3.0 D: Decent but with many flaws.
Serving type: bottle

THOUGHTS: Nice Oktoberfest. Nothing extraordinary. A little watered down, but nice.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light orange, with a small to average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light toasted malt and caramel; light grassy hops; and light doughy yeast. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter with an average duration. There was bread, dough, toasted malt, caramel, nutty malt, slight sour malt and apple juice. The medium body was syrupy with very fizzy carbonatino and a slightly metallic finish.
