2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Sheffields, Chicago
Amber color. A bit unfair to drink this after some IPA, but it seems to be too simple, to me, with an accent on cereals, dry and not even the body of the original Oktoberfest. Boring.

Bottle from Dutch’s. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted malty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Draft. Clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of baking biscuits. Taste is raw brown bread dough, very raw malt dominated. Tasty.

Thanks to goldtwins for sharing. Deep orange beer, aroma is lightly malty, a bit of toast. Clean with a light brown sugar aroma. Flavour is clean with soft munich malt and a bit of brown sugar flavour. Not a whole lot going on, but it’s decent enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent bright copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing spotty white head. Aroma of sweet, toasted grainy caramel malt with nice noble hoppy presence. Has a pleasant, fairly full body with good malty sweetness throughout and a touch of earthy hoppy bitterness and some toasty doughy, nutty notes. Very true to style, a nice Oktoberfestbier. Thanks to GrbDg for the bottle!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Premiere Gourmet. Pours peachy colour, and the aroma is fruity peachy. Easy drinking, mild bitterness, and the bitterness is more pronounced than the slight sweetness, a tad smoked. Bang on.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle thanks to Ughsmash. Pours a clean and clear amber orange color with a decently sized off-white head. Faint nose of caramel and vienna malts, light fruity yeast esters as well, with a light to moderate hop presence, on the lighter side of American-made marzen, which are far too happy as it is. Flavor is a bit subdued, a bit subtle, but really delicious, with fruity orange and lemon flavors tucked underneath the vienna malts. Wet, lightly slick finish. Delicious.

A: The pour is a clear copper color with a finger or so worth of white foam.
S: Initially I get a lot of lager yeast aromas along with some grassy hops. As the beer warms up a little bit, some sweet malt aromas come through. Fairly creamy with some caramel and toffee notes, and a mild spiced quality.
T: Fairly malt forward with notes of grassy and spicy hops. The malt character is bready with some sweet caramel flavors. A slightly earthy bitterness to this beer as well.
M: The body is medium with a smooth carbonation that is lively and moderately creamy.
D: A solid Oktoberfest from a solid brewery. I really enjoyed this lager.
