3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: 1" cream colored head fades fairly quickly leaving faint soapy looking lacing. Amber color and somewhat cloudy with moderate carbonation
Aroma: toasted bread, caramel, a bit of hop spice
Mouthfeel: mostly light but not as light as a pale lager, just slightly sticky, somewhat dry finish
Flavor: toasted bread, caramel malts, a definite hop bite in the middle and finish.
Overall: very good, but not the best Oktoberfest.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Roasty unfiltered caramel color with minial white/off-cream head. Matly sugars on the nose. Somewhat fishy and musty on the tongue. As well, it’s also just off-bitter with the taste. This almost comes off as a Scottish Ale (but then again, I could have had a bad bottle). It’s passable, but not one of the better ones I’ve had of Mr. Oliver’s brews. (Bottle Pour 1/28/2007)

12oz bottle purchased from Clarendon Wines in Boston. Pours a clear, rich copper with a bit of head. Aroma is a bit indistinct. Taste follows - fairly indistinct. Some malts, not a lot of hops. Nothing standing out in this one to make me want to buy it again. Yawn.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brown/copper color with just a little head. The aroma is light, sweet, and malty. The flavor is malty, with a little bit of bitterness and breadiness. I thought this was pretty good, but it’s nothing spectacular.

Pours an amber color with a thin off-white head. Quite sweet aroma with hints of fruit and butter. Refreshing flavor with a malty touch and a wellbalanced light hoppiness. Simple and clean, fresh and easely drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a bad ockoberfest but not great. It has a decent floral hops flavor with a malty finish, although it is nothing special. I found it to be somewhat boring...
