bottle. Pours bright orange with a quick little white head that settles to a ring. Aroma has nice malt and marmalade scent. Taste has a nice subtle bitterness and sweet malt marmalade mixed throughout. Palate is slick with a fizzy carbonation and a drying finish. Pretty nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great grain aroma with a bit of cookie or cake like breadieness? Great roasted malt flavor that just pores through the whole time. Even finished with that sweet malt flavor lingering. Just a little bit of tart at the end, simple, like a period at the end of sentence.
I liked the shit out of it!

Pours a clear amber orange. Not much aroma. Taste is malty & biscuity with little hop finish. Moderate carbonation. Overall a nice Octoberfest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a crystal clear, copper, somewhat gold tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is rich and bready malts with a medium sweetness, a light caramel, a touch of toast, and a floral fruitiness with some peaches and a light apple note. Flavor is similar. Rich and bready malts with some toast and a light caramel sweetness. A slight graininess and a light earthy hopping with a bit of a peachy fruitiness before this finishes smooth with a balanced, light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest. Some bready sweet malts with a light caramel and graininess balanced with a clean, earthy hopping and light toast note. Enjoyable enough.

Ok beer. Kinda sweet. Not really appealing. I look for a much bolder flavor from an octoberfest. Good color, no real aroma.

Aroma is absent but not bad, a little sweet. Color is brown and a little cloudy, with a small white head. Taste is sweet and malty, and nice and frothy on the palate.

Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is orange gold with a white head. Aroma shows a grainy biscuit/toffee malt profile with light spice and grassy hops. Flavor shows the same with additional dried stonefruit and maybe a hint of banana. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light bitterness.

Nice looking yellowish orange copper, very clear pour with some head disapating quickly to a ring ,spotty layer of foam with some lacing.Fairly typical mineral aroma but with some nut light fruit,distict grain, light carmel and an unusually pleasant yeastbready grain aroma. In taste you pick up alot of the distinct malt with a fruit-like berry,this is pretty smooth and medium to light full bodied taste finishing crisp dry and toasty with some citrus bitterness.Pretty decent.Nice aroma and flavor,no metallicyness.Good malt character and a nice mild bitterness balanced well with the sweet almost nutty carmelness.
