3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a copper hue with a thick head which quickly dissipated. Smelled of malt and spices. Tasted slightly malty with hints of spices. Very smooth with a slight bitter finish. Overall a very well made Oktoberfest.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
16 oz. can purchased in Barron, Wisconsin. Pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head with good foam retention. The aroma is of yeast and sweet malt. The flavor is also very sweet with low bitterness. The website says that it has 15.2 IBU´s which is way too low. Not bad and drinkable enough but not great and somewhat thin tasting despite the amber color. I am willing to bet that they are using cheap Canadian grown barley malt to make this. You will not create authentic German beers using cheap barley malt. Spend a little more any buy some Durst/Weyermann/Schill base malts and you will produce a German beer. There is nothing German about this except the Bavarian blue and white colors on the can. Once again, all show and no substance.

Pint can. Pours amber-ish, white head. It’s a shit macro in a different can. Not much oktoberfest other than the Bavarian blue and white. Blech.

Can shared by Skyview - thanks Bob! Hazy amber pour with a nice white head. malty marzipan nose. Big malt taste, caramel and sweet finish. This went well with a sausage with spicy mustard.

Orange color. Moderate malt flavor and dry. An average quality oktoberfest, but it is very drinkable. I didn’t taste the hops. Thanks to skyview for sharing.

Many thanks to Skyview. Coppery color with faint hop aroma and faint burnt malt on the nose. Malty body. Not bad for an Oktoberfest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pre-opening sample from a growler, courtesy of the one and only Skyview. Light copper color with no head. Slight aroma of Noble hops. Much stronger hops in the flavor. Oddly light on the malt taste. A little caramel. Not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a growler. Pale orange. Pear, watery caramel, dirty hops and minerals on the nose; slight and sticky. Flavor of bubblegum, bananas, and soft nutty tones. Pasty and bright, replacing the reserved, comforting sweetness of firm munich malts with something more abrasive and forward. Slick, medium bodied palate; finishes with thin maple syrup and grassy hop. Different, and reasonably nice.

Thanks for the advance tasting, and best wishes to a new brewery! There’s some life here, though perhaps a bit less silky than average, and a range of malt flavors though adversely affected, to my thinking, by a bubblegum note. Still, very promising--long may they brew. Growler.
