cgmees (32) - Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2010
On tap at the Idle Rich pub in Dallas in a 1/2 liter mug (Spaten) First off, I like slightly sweet October beers. This one was served with a nice 1 inch head (space in the mug for 1/2 liter beer and 1 inch of head) very amber with golden hints from the sunlight. The aroma is strong with spicy malt and fruit. Lots of malt, richness and sweetness layered in with a roasted caramel flavor to the tongue. Medium to full body with a touch of lingering sweetness and hint of carbonation. Very Drinkable. Notice I used sweet frequently, it is not a sugary beer, but balanced and likely to be considered more of a desert beer by most drinkers. I like the overall presentation and drinkablility. Will miss it once the kegs are gone and look forward to next year.

Pours a copper color with off-white head. Caramel malt and toast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some malt character.

For the style, not a bad beer. Malts are king here on the aroma with some grainy sourness and bread. Copper color that simply had an autumn feel to it. Weighty palate with a thicker feel than expected. The flavor started off with a sour malt but finished with a roasted nuttiness that I really liked. This made it stand out for me. One of the better Texas offerings for this style.

Draught at the Franconia Brewery, McKinney, TX. A big thank you to Eric!
Hazy brown colour with an average sized tan head. The aroma is grainy malty with some bitterish notes. The flavour is strong grainy malty. Very German like brew. Tasty.

One of the best oktoberfest beers that I have had this season. On tap at Mongoose versus Cobra in Houston. Very tasty fall beer with caramel and toffee notes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muddy amber color. Smell is malt, earth, and a little old grain. Medium body. Taste is toasted malt, woody, caramel, and copper. Finish is clean and smooth. A decent fall brew from my local brewery.

Mora2000 (5677) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2010
On tap at the Plano Gingerman. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is strong on the toffee notes. The flavor is a mix of toffee and caramel. I also get a little bit of grape character in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not the best Oktoberfest out there, but a very nice example of the style.
