2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I left it out of the cooler for a bit first. Poured with a smallish, cream colored head that soon settle to a small island, a broken ring, and no lace. Color is a clear red orange amber with a bubble trail. Aroma is malt, fruit, hop, caramel. Flavor is much the same as nose with hops and sweetness standling out with a little tang. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is like flavor, a little on the short side, and a hint of alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is a reasonably heady golden copper. The aroma is slightly malted but more like perfume than anything else. It did not make me think of an Oktoberfest. The body is thin to medium. The taste had an odd yeasty, malty flavor that I could not quite define.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half liter bottle - nose is caramel and yard weeds. Alsmost crisp. Hoppier than I expect from the style. Something akin to pepper in the finish. Interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale copper with a firm tan head. Aroma has caramel malts, toasted malt, a bit earthy, and a light spice. Medium-full bodied with a creamy feel. Flavor is full of sweet and toasted malts, a bit of biscuit, earth, a touch of chocolate, and a bit of zesty spice. A really nice lager.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 Bottle. Pours an orange copper with a small fine frothy white head. Aroma is fresh and floral, some light bread, slight malt sourness, well balanced, excellent. Flavor follows, medium sweetness, floral hops, light bread and sour dough, an excellent drinker, very well balanced and fresh, nice hop presence. Medium bodied, smaller fine sizzling carbonation, easy to drink and very tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz bottle. Deep amber orange. Decent malt nose and slight noble hop aroma. Taste is far too sweet/caramel for the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint bottle shared. Orangish brown color with off white head. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Has a good solid malt backbone. Get some hop action on the back end. Don’t feel this is overly hopped. But does have a smooth finish. Almost cloyingly sweet on the back end. Pretty decent for Oktoberfest.
