Sarlacc83 (1500) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle from a mix six pack. A: Semi-clear copper with a foamy off-white head and some lacing. N: Toast, biscuit, low levels of hops adding some earthiness and loam, very much on the bready side of things. T: Medium sweet with a slight, but balancing bitterness. M: Light body, foamy carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: A solid Oktoberfest. I prefer this to the Dunkelweiss, and in fact, I could see myself having it again. Not nearly as complex as Ayinger, but I expect that’s a rarity.

notalush (5458) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Medium Amber pour - nose of caramel, light esters, light floral hope - not as rich in nose of flavor as I want in the style, but fairly clean overall - soft carbonation, decent froth in the mouth - flavor is medium sweet, lightly toasty, lightly fruity - there is a very mild vegetal character - back end is moderate bitterness and floral hops, a touch of mineral - decent.
