Flyind Dog should stick to the American styles they are so great at. This German style beer is not their specialty, it’s a bit boring.

355ml bottle at home. Pours clear mid-amber with a big white head. Lots of caramel aromas, some dried fruit. Taste has more caramel sweetness then a hint of hop bitterness. Creamy texture, slightly sticky finish. Nice.

Copper colour. Aroma has some sweet caramel and malt. Flavour has a strong malty presence, a bit toasted. Sweet caramel finish with just a touch of bitter dryness coming in late in the aftertaste. I find this too sweet be a sessionable drink.

Bottle bought at The Bear and Billet, Chester. Pours an amber brown colour, with a one finger frothy head. Metallic, malt and caramel on the nose, much of the same in the taste. Good, but not the best from this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Best by date on the side: 01/22/14. Mine says 5.6% ABV. A clear copper pour with a thick and creamy antique white head. Caramel, toffee, and a toasty cereal graininess dominate the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. Toffee and caramel start things off taste-wise. Lightly toasted sweet cereal grains round things out. The slightest hint of citrus at the end. A tad biscuity and vegetal throughout. Great for the style.

Keg at Bierhaus Cork. Pours a very dark copper colour with a thin white head. Big and heavy aroma of toffee, light molasses and rich biscuit. The taste is a heavy boozy sweetness: very toffeeish and very malty. Unbalanced but quite great nonetheless. Nice sweet finish, lively and medium mouthfeel. Probably the best Oktoberfest I’ve tried, especially for a style I don’t hugely like.
