2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate caramel, light apple, butterscotch, and some faint earthy/nutty notes. It pours a transparent dark amber with a one finger beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outline by a thick ring; There is some spotty webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel with a hint of fruit. The finish has light-moderate butterscotch with a touches of apples and nuts. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I could certainly do without the butterscotch.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing speckling the sides of the glass.
The smell was slightly nutty and light caramel with a sticky breadiness (fresh more or less).
The taste was mainly sweet with a light bready/caramel sweetness to it.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat good.
Overall, decent Oktoberfest, was this supposed to be a blend with an Amber maybe a Brown ale? It sure is different than most Oktoberfest so I liked this one more for me.
