3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty good and caramel malted Oktoberfest bier. Lots of roastiness on the nose and palate. Pretty drinkable, and a good example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Great Dane – Wausau. Poured clear copper with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up toasted nutty and caramel notes with fresh fruity and leafy accents.. crisp and well-presented. The flavor found nicely-toasted caramel and chewy bread at the core.. fruity hops and a touch of tartness around.. odd, slightly funky fruit on the finish. Light-medium bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow. This started out much better than it finished.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, Great Dane, downtown. Pours a clear orangish copper with a small off-white head. Clean munich malt nose with just a light hint of hoppiness. The flavor is pretty good, caramel and munich malt with a moderate bitterness on the finish that makes it pretty crisp. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Decent, but not a standout.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at their airport location, pours a dark amber witha a decent white foamy head. Taste is thick andalty, a little corny at the end. I’ll try it again at the brewpub, as I’m always worried that airport glasses are a bit tainted for flavor and aroma.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Fitchburg Dane - Pours dark amber with very little head. Nose is sweet malt--it’s nice and rich with lots of slightly sour milk. Taste is big and malty, with a little sour lactose, caramel, and just a bit of whiskey. There’s the faintest hop finish. It’s bubbly and smooth, but just a bit too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An early release Octoberfest from Great Dane. On draught during Great Taste of Midwest 2009 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, a touch of caramel malt and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, smooth with more malty flavor than fruit character. Finish is semi-sweet, malty with a slight biscuit texture and aftertaste.
