Pours clear brown with little to no head. Faint sweet malty aroma. Nutty brown flavor with sour notes and a hint of smoke. Flavor is the same. Ok, but nothing stands out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Remnants of a six pack on sale, so this was probably past its prime. Pours a deep ruby (midway between a porter and an amber) with a finger of pillowy white head. Aroma is caramel and some resiny hops. Taste is roasted malts and some hop bitterness. Somewhat thick mouthfeel. This wasnít bad, but I think itís a stretch to call this an Oktoberfest beer. Good while it lasted, but forgettable when it was over.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz into a pint. Pours a dark brown cola. No head, this may be an older brew as it was on sale for $6 a six pack in November. Aroma is malty and sweet. Taste is sweet chery cola, brown sugar, grainy suds within the carbination which is lacking a fullness. "after rakiní" autumn ale this is, nice for the late fall days are the seasons change. Its an ok brew for the season, not exceptional, but ok.

2012-11-16. Dark brown body with a small tan head. 3+ Mild aroma, light malt character, a bit sweet. Flavour is mild, malty, lightly nutty, with a not quite maple like aspect to it. Okay, not really much to it though. Bottle shared by Radek

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured deep brown with very little head. The aroma picked up sweet nutty, vanilla, and molasses notes with sweeter versions of the sugars around.. decent. The flavor found. More molasses and vanilla at the core, with malty tartness and light oxidation around.. finished tart and prickly with more molasses. Lighter-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. ok feel. This seemed to be missing something.
