3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on top of a copper body.
Smell is wet grain and a little earthy.
Taste has good malt sweetness, but not too much. Mild bitterness. Bready and malty overall.
Crisp, but still smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A good beer. If you find one, drink it.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is sweet caramel-like malt, understated hop spiciness, fall leaves - just smells like fall. Great amber color with lots of bubbles rising to the top but a small amount of white foam. Great looking beer. Taste is refreshing, just hoppy enough with malt sweetness taking over at the end. This is what an Oktoberfest should taste like. It’s an understated style; a lot of brewers try to do too much with it. Palate is not as fizzy as the appearance, slick and smooth. This has replaced Shiner Oktoberfest as my new favorite. Now I need to get my hands on some Ayinger . . .

Sampled this beauty at the 2013 OBF event in Joplin, and it was one of the standouts at the event. BIG malty boldness with a toffee, nutty characteristic. Flavor lasts for eons. Terrific O-fest. One of the very best in the style FOR SURE. GET SOME!
