pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. Light malt and grass aroma. Full malt flavor with some modest hop bitter to counter. Pleasant bittersweet finish. Very well balanced. Probably the best Oktoberfest I’ve had yet. Good beer!

Bottle from the Rugby Tap. Looks very nice in the glass, much darker than other traditional Oktoberfest’s. Grassy, caramel, toasted aromas. Taste is biscuity, caramel, grassy, bit of toffee in there. Slightly sweet finish. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A quite dark, yellow with light brown notes. A blond head is quite big but decreasing. Aroma has strong maltyness, some grass, not so fresh as should be. Taste has sweet maltyness, some bitterness but that’s not drying the mouth enough, some grass. Medium bodied, smooth, nice carbonation. Easy to drink as this is brewed. Nothing special but the glass is quickly empty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bready, caramel malty aroma with a surpringly boozy nose (although it’s currently room temp). Subtle banana hints. Lovely, actually quite unusual colour of clear rust. Flavour is sweet,, smooth caramel with an overarching bready flavour and a slight sharpness from the alcohol. Whilst the beer is sweet, the breadiness gives a very savoury impression. A really nice example of the style, only criticism is the lack of masking of the alcohol flavours.

Weak Sweet malt aroma and a clear dark gold body. Flavour is a slightly vegetable sweet malt mix. Not especially amazing.
