3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a clear brownish golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Medium toasted sweet malt and hops aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted balanced flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew for style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle: Pours a clear deep orange amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a sweet, lightly toasted pale malty nose with some noble hoppy notes and a touch of graininess. Starts with pretty good fullness and fine carbonation with a light caramel sweetness and some biscuity notes with a grassy noble hop bitterness before a drier, crisp finish. True to style and quite drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured light-medium orange with a short, bigger-bubbled white head. The aroma picked up lightly-toasted caramel and bready malts with odd metallic/sour fruity accents.. overall sweet and alright. The flavor found the same bready malts at the core along with slightly syrupy, yet sour fruit skins.. tacky and sour on the finish. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate with a thicker feel than it needed.. this was either a mediocre beer or a fairly solid beer with an infection.

Bottle. Light toffee malt aroma. Hazy amber color with large tan head. Slightly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Body pretty light. Not bad - straight forward.

On draught at the brewpub in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin location. Pours a clear light copper amber brew with an average off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus zest, a touch of toffee and some earthy herbs. Taste has a nice balance of caramel malt and citrus zest flavors that makes this a vienna style more than the traditional malty copartner. Finish is smooth with a slight citrus and piney hop aftertaste that quickly disappears and leaves behind a mild bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. A medium copper colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has fall leaves and peanuts. This tastes of toffee and peanuts. There is also some tasty toffee. A little bit of wood in the finish. Well made.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to BeerFMAndy for sending this brew out my way. Served in a pilsner glass.
Pours a cloudy orange color with a single-finger head to start out with. The head is quite bubbly and not terribly dense. Some large bubbles of head stick to the sides of the glass. Nose is good with some nice earthy hop notes. There is a good dose of bready malt as well as some light caramel notes.
The taste brings a pretty nice caramel character along with some slightly-toasted bread and a bit of bread crust. There is a slight earth presence in the taste as well, though not as much as there was in the nose. The bread continues to come through into the finish, which is slightly dry and pretty nice overall. Good light-to-medium body with nice carbonation.
Overall, this is a nice oktoberfest that I’m glad i got to try. It sticks within the style fairly well but adds a bit of an American twist with more hops than most traditional German versions, though it’s not overly hoppy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
551 ml brown bottle.
It pours a clear orange, the lacing is a bit dirty looking.
The smell is slightly toasty with a hint of fruitiness. There is some grain and a pinch of herbal hops as well.
The flavor is pretty solid, it has more of a hop presence than most. There is also the typical oktoberfest flavor going on, some slight toasty nuttiness and a hint of fruit.
