3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a sour malt scent. Color is a bright brown with good carbonation and a thin tight head. Taste is spicy and malty. Starting with a lighter medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish is malty with caramel and honey flavors and a spiciness on the end. The spiciness lingers into the after taste with a mellow bitterness. This is a good brew it has the feel of a real German Märzen like Ayinger or Paulaner.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body has a dark amber color and good clarity. The head is off white in color and foamy but fades out quickly leaving just a ring of foam on top.
Smell: The aroma has a heavy malty character with caramel and light roasted/toasted notes. Hop aroma is very mild.
Taste/Mouth feel: It has a big malty flavor that is sweet and bready with a nutty character. Hop flavor is modest and brings leafy/herbal notes and mild bitterness for some balance. Also a little metallic taste creeps into the mix. The finish is fairly quick and balanced but still a bit on the sweet side. Its carbonation is soft and the texture is smooth with a medium body.
Notes: Overall it’s a good offering for good price.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An slightly above average Oktoberfest. Aroma was a little weak. Mostly caramel malt with a wierd staleness to it. Pour was a nice standard dark amber/light brown with a one finger near tan head. Taste was very carbonated and malty with a bit of earthiness to it. Nice caramel sweet aftertaste. Nice suprise.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I’m not a huge fan of this beer. Over the top caramel flavor, perhaps Diacetyl. No hop profile, which is appropriate for style, sort of.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Body is a dark amber (almost brown with a small, tan head and aromas of caramel/toffee (very candy-like) and a bit of pie spices. Flavor is caramel and spice... but spice is like pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.) If I didn’t know better, I would say this is a pumpkin beer without the pumpkin... Pretty good, but a little weird for the style. Comes off as a bit watery/thin on every other sip.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in McKinney, TX. Pours a clear deep amber with orange hues, minimal off-white head. Aroma of caramel and spice. Flavor is semi-sweet malty, caramel, spice, subtle alcohol spice, slight bitter. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, pretty average, nothing stands out. Still tasty though....

I find this to be pretty tasty. It could use a little more of everything, but not much. It pours a beautiful burnt orange, with a nice head that dissipates all too quickly. I’d like it a bit richer, but not bad.
