Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Lightly hazy copper colour. Thin, tight, dirty white head. Sugary fruits. Some ripe banana. Light caramel. Taste is sweet, with a dried fruit tang. Fairly rich, smooth palate. Finishes with more of the dried fruit sweetness. Not my favourite style, but I did enjoy this.

Pours mahogany with a bit of head. Nose is surprisingly hoppy for the style, a bready malt. Taste is very balanced hop/malt profile, some sweetness, a bit of bitterness on the end. Definitely not a traditional oktoberfest, I'm missing the german lager yeast character. Reads almost like an American amber. It's ok.

12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling amber color with foamy light tan head and average carbonation. Bready and biscuity sweet malty aroma. Mostly sweet malty flavor with just a subtle note of hoppiness. Medium bodied with a somewhat sweet finish. Sessionable and tasty.

Growler from Whole Foods. Caramel colored, a bit creamy, little carbonation and a dry caramel flavor capped off by a medium long bitter finish. Decent but not outstanding for this style.

Keg at The Font, Chorlton. Deep, dark copper shade and a nice head of foam. Faintly hoppy aroma. Crisp, caramelly taste, not much sweetness. A recurring jammy fruit presence lurking beneath. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy and body is strong. Nothing extraordinary but an impressive example of this style.

On draught at the sports bar in the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY. Arrived a clear warm gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Pleasant aroma of malt with notes of caramel and mild toast. The flavor is very similar with malt, light caramel and mld toast. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Fairly smooth on the palate. Medium bodied.
