harrisoni (14992) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Red/russet with beige head. Some good caramel, barley sugar aromas which carry on into the body of this beer. Quite drinkable. Bit too sweet but good spice/dry hop finish. Hop nose is quite subtle

MiP (14435) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle. Dark copper colour, small head. Looks flat. A little malty. The alcohol stands out a bit, perhaps it is because of the combination with a hop flavour that is a little harsh. Mild carbonation, which I like. Good mouthfeel.

brokensail (12865) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
A: The pour is a deep, dark copper color with a couple of fingers worth of off-white head. S: Lots of sweet and bready malts to begin with. Earthy hop notes along with a slight spice quality. I get nutmeg and all-spice for the most part, and there is a fair amount of yeast. T: The bread and hops are at the forefront. Semi-sweet malts along with floral and earthy hops. The bitterness is quite light, but a lot of the same spices that the nose had. M: Medium in body with a lively carbonation to it. Really refreshing, actually. D: Another top German tick, and it’s on the list with good reason. I liked this one quite a lot and will make sure to pick some up each year.

Koelschtrinker (12443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Eindeutig eins der besseren Oktoberfestbiere. Süffig ist es natärlich, wie bei Bieren dieser Sorte kaum anders zu erwarten. Eine gut dosierte Herbe schwingt von Anfang bis Ende mit, ein malziger Unterton ist durchaus in einigen Teilen zu erschmecken. Ein wenig fehlt der Pepp jedoch schon, ich vermisse einen ausgereifteres Aroma. Irgendwie fällt mir zu diesem Bier das Wort "kernig" ein. Test vom 20.10.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,10,11,10,14,9 - 9,55

bhensonb (12306) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Aroma of caramel malt and apple? Amber color with a white head that was respectable and laced in a mild way. A bit thin bodied, and mild, crunchy carbonation with apple flavor? Grape? Some kind of light fruit. Verly slightly sweet. Floral hop really makes this nice. It is just so clean and refreshing. Very tasty.
