Beer is drinkable, but it seems a tad too malty. Strong apricot syrup flavor.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap pours a light copper with some off white foam. Light aroma of grain and light sweetness. The taste is simple but very smooth. A light earthy spice with drying flowery hops compliment the grain well to create a well finished product. There is a subtle nuttiness going with the hops that linger vying for palate space with the spice from the grain. Smooth and very easy to drink, this should be served in a liter glass.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark amber with thick frothy head, this one looks great out of the bottle. Aroma is caramel and I can pick up on some earthy/hop notes and toffee as well. First thing that strikes me about this one is the body, med. to heavy and perfect for the style. Nice rich caramel/toffee flavor that finishes clean. I can’t recall a better Octoberfest and I’m proud its from a brewery just down the road from me in Lawrence, KC and now avail. by bottle. Awesome stuff ! I’ll be looking forward to this every year !
