12oz bottle. Amber-Orange with little white head. Caramel malt aroma and a little honey. The taste is a little sweeter than most of the style, but it isn’t overpowering. Malt, honey, floral. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty decent little beer, far from the best tho. Copper colored beer, no lacing, small head fades off, decent aroma, malty, strong. Taste is pretty good, reminds me of fruit and scotch alright.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid. A nice lager. Has a bit more kick than expected in this style, and wouldn’t mind a wee more malt flavor.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an acceptable seasonal offering. The potentially crisp, caramel, toasty aspect of the flavor is blunted by a honey like sweetness that takes it in the wrong direction as far as I am concerned. Not bad. Just not to my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty nice rendition of the style. Aroma is malt driven, light bread and honey. The color and palate are light, but the flavor comes through a little more with a touch of extra richness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
24 oz sample on tap at The Burger Saloon in Woodland. Aroma has some sweet toffee and caramel. Lightly metallic, too. Transparent copper-Orange body with a small, cream-colored head. Starts with a moderately sweet, nutty, and husky maltiness. Light metallic twang in the middle . Finishes a little herbal, and slightly dry. Not shabby.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a nice orange color with an off white head. The aroma is very pleasant with dry, toasty bread and light Munich malt derived plum fruit. The flavor is the same. Dry and toasty with a decent dose of earthy bitterness. Very malty yet dry. Smooth full bodied with a snappy finish. Great Oktoberfest.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a really good Oktoberfest. Malty and grassy, yet with just the right amount of sweetness. A filling beer, but quite right for the season. A cloudy-ish orange color.
