Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2012
500ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a mostly clear, golden-copper colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted, grainy, somewhat bready caramels with a light sweetness. A light, clean, floral and grassy hopping with a bit of a fruitiness. Flavor is similar. Clean, grainy, lightly sweetened bready caramels with a decent floral and grassy hopping. A light toastiness as this finishes dry with a moderate bitterness that seems a touch high before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body with a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. Crisp and clean with a toasty, lightly sweetened, grainy caramel malt backing and a somewhat bitter, floral and grassy hopping. Not bad.

Headbanger (3360) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
16oz bottle 4/20/13 (Binny’s Naperville Clearance Rack)-44° in Mug-Pours medium copper with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee, bread, and slight fruit. Taste of malt, fruit, sweetness, and hops. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and not overly malty. I’m not a fan of this style but this is darn tasty.

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.
