3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized auburn colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was Vienna malt. The crisp and clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering Vienna malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of Vienna malt sweet and mild hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is somewhat balanced, but too much sweetness for me. Overall drinkable.

Very good aroma. Has the scent of their bourbon county stout (which I love). Different from other Oktoberfest beers. Malty, sweet, slight smoke flavor.

Toffee and malt aroma. Clear deep copper body with a thick off-white head. Taste is of sweet apricot and toffee. Has a touch of bitterness but the malt balances it out nicely. Clean finish.

ABC bottle side-by-side with the SN fest beer. Comparatively much darker bronze color with a tan head. Lots of sweeter, caramel malt and yeast. Very light bitterness if any. Maybe a touch too sweet but still very pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Split with jstax. Bottled on 13/aug/15. Clear amber color. Thin off-white head. No lace sticks. Nutty, malty, toasty and spicy flavor up front. Pretty nice. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. I was skeptical about the description of dried apricot, but yeah, you can kind of see that. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, crisp lighter to moderate carbonation. Mild slick, bit of dryness. Pretty decent oktoberfest. Better than expected. Solid to enjoy with my sandwich.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, medium-amber color with a very small, light-tan head that dissipates quickly. Strong scents of caramel, toffee, and apricot. It is slightly sweet with flavors of toffee, apricot, and maybe a little orange peel. It has a medium body that is slightly creamy. Carbonation is average, with the finish being quick and on the bitter side. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, as I was not expecting too much from it. Certainly, not one of the best beers I’ve had, but definitely enjoyable.
