3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear orange/amber color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is a mix of toasted grains, caramel malt, and a hint of hops. The flavor is mainly toasted malts, light hints of caramel, some grass, and light hops. Medium bodied and easy to drink. This is a fairly average, yet clean Oktoberfest.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
It had a small creamy light tan head over a deep amber colored body with good clarity. The head fades quickly but hangs on till the last slip and make for some slick lacing on the way down the mug. The aroma is sweet, candy like, with caramel notes and hint of bubble gum, toasted malt and mild hops. It has a sweet caramel toasted and bready malt with some light buttery and nutty notes. Hop flavor is mild and adds some spice and mild bitterness as well as a slight metallic touch. It has an easy drinking medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. The finish is sweet and clean.

Smooth and refreshing when cold, but pour is a cloudy dark amber with no head. Aroma is almost non-existant and the flavor is lacking.

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Malty, bread, caramel malt, roasted malt, all on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a smidge of hop bite. Nice example of the style.

Coppery pour with a significant amount of foamy white head. Fruity spicy nose. Slightly bitter and a touch tart. Usually expect more boozyness from an Oktoberfest and that isn’t here. Not bad. .

(US 2012 backlogged in abstinence) 12oz bottle enjoyed straight out of the brown bagged bottle in Central Park, 09/2012. Enjoyable runny Oktoberfest with enough sweet-dough and crisp floral hops to detract from the somewhat watery, metallic base - flavours are less harmonically incorporated compared to Bavarian originals.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy brown body that yields a small half finger white head slowly dissipates into the body after a half minute. Some spider web lacing is left.
The smell had some earthy breadiness and nuts up front with some nutmeg and caramel slightly in the background.
The taste had an earthy breadiness that came back a bit more up front than the other flavorings.
The palate was about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. I would say this is a pretty drinkable beer.
Overall, this is a pretty good beer that I would have again.

Nice and quite thick. Somewhat too Brooklyn brewery alike and not so Oktoberfest though. Easy to drink.
