2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Excellent head with great lacing and retention. A good amber color. Had a strong aroma that was fruity and citrusy, but all soapy and not good overall. Taste had a slight chocolate hint with a bitter flowery taste that was undesirable in the style. Good mouthfeel that lingered in the palate. Overall not bad, but could be better with different hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It has a thick and foamy beige head over a dark orange amber colored body with good clarity. The head has good retention and slowly fades to thin covering leaving nice slick lacing that slides down the glass as I sip. Its aroma is creamy sweet and malty with some toasted caramel notes and mild leafy hops. The flavor has wonderful toasted notes with sweet creamy caramel and mild spicy/leafy hops. Hop bitterness is mild throughout but picks in the finish and fades off the tongue slowly. It has a smooth and creamy texture that is just slightly sick with good balanced carbonation and a solid medium to full body.

Bottle - Not a bad beer but not great either. Has that distinctive Octoberfest taste to it. Fortunately no weird spice flavor on this, but it does taste like fall to me. Dry on the palate with some hops flavor to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a caramel-amber body with a slightly creamy white film of a head. Carbonation seen rising.
The smell had mild hops with some caramel malts.
The taste was sweet through the malts, not as balanced as I would have hoped.
The palate sat about a light to medium, slightly creamy, sessionable, no aftertaste or finish.
Overall, good for the style, decent to me.

Very nice but quite watery as many of this brewery ones. NIce lager hints and not so much an Oktoberfest.
