3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location/Date:Bottle on November 7th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a nice dark caramel clear.
Aroma: Aroma is of nutty malt, with some hay and faint caramel.
Taste: Faint bitterness, faint caramel sweetness more on the end, hay.
Palate:Light body, a little bit of fizz.
Summary: I have been slow to start out November - need to kick it up a notch to hit 1000 total ratings before January 1st. Per usual I mostly defer for this style to the imports from Germany. Not a bad beer for the style and drinkable, but nothing that would make me choose this over others, even within American options.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
BBD 1/12/15. Clear amber pour with a very nice dark ruby cast. Slightly above normal head volume, average retention and superior lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel notes over a light herbal/floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice slick texture. Above normal carbonation with a good bit of effervescence in the middle and on the finish. The flavor profile is reasonably intense, somewhat complex and well balanced. It begins with toasty biscuit malt then flows into a mild caramel sweetness. The middle is slightly bitter with a nutty/spicy note. The finish is a bit crisp and leaves you with a lingering toasted grainy note. A good Oktoberfest.
