3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Toasted, but somehow green (perhaps pistachios), marzen aroma. Absolutely terrible label - looks like a clown got thrown into a blender and the remains were sprayed on the entry sign to some German berg. Clear copper beer, tannish head. Clean, toasty, nutty-sweet and well-hopped flavor profile - very true to style. Drinkable and good. This would be a good pairing with any red meat or Italian pasta. Finishes out with a light sweetness and a woody bitterness. A strange but decent ride. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Sixes for Sunday NFL games. Pours brought copper with nice head. Tastes malty, of caramel, earth, with nice combination. Slight stickiness on palate but a decent Oktoberfest.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: reddish orange, with bronze to gold highlights; one-finger of tan head quickly shrinking to a collar; minimal lacing. Aroma: sweet toasty malts, with a hint of roast nuts and a whisper of metallic funk. Taste: sweet and toasty, with caramel and brown sugar over a bit of fresh-feeling hops. Finish: clean, short, crisp, slightly bitter, with a pleasant lingering toasty-sweet flavor remaining. Notes: A decent example of the style. Pretty to look at, with a good palate, average flavors, average aroma, and excellent finish.

Pours a nice, deep bronze with a light tan head. Yummy candy malt aroma with herbal hop backbone. Palate is extremely soft--I maybe want a bit more "teeth." Flavor is light, with the typical festbier sweetness kept in check by a strong malt backbone. Well brewed, if subtle.

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.

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.
