3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber with a frothy head cover, globs and strips of lace. Taste is caramel malt that turns sweeter in the palate before adding a light touch of hops in the finish to keep things under control. Nicely balanced, the sweet and hops compliment each other very well. A good light brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear amber with thick head that dissipated quickly. Malt, light toasted bread, and biscuit in nose. Malty bread up front with a touch of toffee; a bit sweet near the finish. Lacks mouthfeel: overall, body is thin; more body would result in a higher rating. A slight bitterness in the finish with a hint of corn; a touch of alcohol in the finish as well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a relatively small off-white head on there. Nose is filled with some corn and toast, with a lot more "lager" elements than I’m used to for the style. Taste is just a tad sweet, with a little breadiness throughout. OK.

"A true to the style octoberfest that has a pleasant bready malt presence. A little light on the palate, but the aroma especially is quite nice. if there were just a little more follow through, this could be very good."
