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 wasn’t bad, but I think it’s a stretch to call this an Oktoberfest beer. Good while it lasted, but forgettable when it was over.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice maple color with less than a full finger of head. Aroma is of roasted malts, caramel, raisins, minimal hops, and a slight smell of alcohol. Taste is kinda bland, it's refreshing, but boring. Almost tastes like a watered down Octoberfest. Overall, I'm glad I tried it, but I won't buy this one again.

Not unpleasing. Doesn’t seem to have that Old Ale Strength. I would drink again. Non descript.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice fest beer. Not sure about its hybrid style, but enough caramel notes for a fall offering. I guess it has a crisp, low bitterness finish.

Pleasant enough, but unremarkable in a "Becks Dark" kind of way. Tried from a bottle - might be more interesting on draft...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The color of this beer is a nice clear deep garnet with a small white head, and the aroma has caramel malts and roasted malts. The taste of this beer is quite sour and slightly bitter, and the palate combines a soft carbonation, thin texture, medium body, and sour finish.
