2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of sweet toffee, breads, and caramel. Brown amber with a frothy tan head. Sweet caramel malt first. Off sweeness, slightly off putting. Bitterness next, mild. Finishes with toffee flavor, and surprising revisit from sweetness. Watery texture. Average.

A rounder style Okt with balanced sweet and crisp malt profile, lean edge of hops and moderately full body. Not hop forward at all and no big lager edge.

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.
