Grabbed a few sips from my wife’s glass at the restaurant. Served in a pint glass, typical clear copper color with off-white head. Aroma is toasty and caramel malt. Taste is malt sweetness with some hop finish. Medium body. Alright for the style.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt with earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt and hop balanced with medium bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Overall, just okay... doesn’t compare to many of the Oktoberfest options available. The beer seems a bit weak and watery. Not one of BA’s best choices.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have had a couple of these on tap at the brewery over the last week or two. The aroma is a malty caramel and earthy/grainy hop blend, but is not particularly strong. It has a clear amber-copper color with a very small, foamy white head that had short life. The flavor is sweet and malty, with a light touch of hoppy bitterness. Medium-density body and mouthfeel, with a slightly watery effect and lower carbonation. A solid beer for the season.
