Pours a dark orangish, cloudy, light head. Light aroma of malty sweetness. Taste is somewhat tart earthiness, somewhat thin. Not too bad, but could have been much more. Aftertaste is nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy sienna color with a finger or two of tan frothy foam... aromas are sweet malts, wheat, biscuit and a touch of floral notes. On the mouth it has great mouthfeel... rich earthy maltiness. Great honeyed notes touched by the slightest floral bitterness to amplify the cracker flavors !

500ml bottle. Murky grayish orange-brown. Thin, small, patchy head. Doughy yeast esters, maybe a hint of oxidation. Tastes a little faded, amber malt tones,,but I suppose is it in the Oktoberfest style...whatever, this one is clearly past it’s prime, sort of a bummer. Probably one to avoid unless you know it’s fresh. Woody and awkward amber malt tones.

8/6/12. 500mL bottle from Grassroots. Slightly hazed orange pour with a small tan head. Bready caramel aroma with biscuits and toast. Really nice smooth flavor that is malty and shows plenty of bread, toast, and biscuits. This is tasty and ridiculously easy drinking. Nice!

Pours a clear amber with a foamy, but short-lived off-white head. Smells of caramel, toasty nuts, herbs. Taste is moderately sweet with a little bitterness - m=malty with a small hop presence. Crisp and refreshing.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very good beer! Poured this at a good temperature with a large, thick, foamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles and a little lace. Color is an almost clear, honey amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is a fresh, volatile mix of malt, hop, toffee, yeast, a little fruit. Flavor’s like nose, on the dry side, with a little residual fruitiness; carbonic tang and yeast/hop bitter are all up front and work well together. Body is excellent - has a softness that is checked by great carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and is super drinkable. Could drink the hell outta this one.
