3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Hazy dark brown with red highlights. 1 finger of light tan head
S - Rich toffee/caramel malt, very sweet and sugary.
T - Follows the nose with dense toffee/caramel malt. Grainy and tangy grass/straw flavors on the finish.
M - Full body, slighlty chewy feel.
Pretty one dimensional with the sweet malt dominating pretty much everything. But the sweetness works and I find myself wanting another one.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper/amber with a small white head. It smells a lot like a crisp fall morning. It have a very sharp sweetness that is almost a cider with almost no bitter. The body is light, thin, and crisp like a cider with a slight bitter finish. It’s not like a lot of oktoberfest beers I have tried with is a nice change of pace. I’m not a fan of either oktoberfest or ciders, but this is a nice balance between the two.

"Not a great reintroduction to the style in 2012. I had the Pyramid first this year, and that one was nice. This wasn’t a bad beer, but too sweet and one dimensional. Didn’t do much for me. "

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. The aroma has a heavy malty character with caramel and light roasted/toasted notes. Hop aroma is very mild. 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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 11-01-2011 (Bottle) This beer pours a small smooth fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, copper transparent body, fizzy carbonation observed, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, sweet and a suggestion of spice. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. The flavor is rather bland and lacks character and it is a beer that will not be put on my want to drink again list.
