Yeah, yeah, I know - it’s November and I’m still drinking Octoberfests. Considering I was greeted by snow at 0500 this morning, it’s definitely the beginning of the end for autumn. Decent example of the style, if a little simplistic. (13/20)

Rating #1259 - 30.09.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Clear golden coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a bold earthy hop aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Excellent brew.

Thanks to presario for this. I forgot about this one at the back of my cellar and I think it’s past it’s prime. Pours a dark reddish amber with a big frothy white head. Aroma is malt, spice maybe nutmeg. Taste has a sting to it. Not sure if it’s the age but there is a bite that is a tad spicy and a little sulphurous. I’m guessing not intended. Other than that, the malt is still very well represented.

Pint on tap at Oliver Square location in Edmonton. Poured a deep amber color with a small white head and some spots of lace. Aroma of roasted malts and some floral hops. Taste is roasted malty sweetness and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Overall, I truly enjoy a pin of this beer every fall at Brewsters.

Much better tasting or at the least, I’m enjoying this much more. Tasty malts are bigger. Yes pretty vague. Hits the style well and it doesn’t have the typical brewsters flavor. Still, this is NOT a fave style of mine but I could put a couple back
Got me a nice clear deep amber beer with the usual lack of crown due to the rim-high pour. The aroma was very weak with subdued caramel malts and faint hops. This is a terrible beer when ice cold but obviously better when warmed. There were alot of toasty malts and a chunk of weakly spiced hops - very two dimentional. The hops did become more peppery and did seem to drive the flavour especially near the end. Has a short lived strong hop finish.
