3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. Aromas of malts and more malts. Flavor is basically the same but the carbonation is a lot more soft than I was expecting. No detectable hop presence but for this style, that’s expected. Leaves an oily mouthfeel and has a bit of a watery finish but it’s not a bad offering at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Coppery amber pours, not much head or lacing. Nose is malty, toffee, some dried fruit. Mouth is malt forward (duh), some caramel but doesn’t really go anywhere else. Drinkable, but not remarkable. What’s the German conversational equivalent of ’porch pounder’?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Middling as far as oktoberfests go. Aroma is nice, medium, kind of malty. I think the palate is good, with proper carbonation and an appropriately strong aftertaste. The taste is fine, no real complexity unfortunately, and it lacks malty warmth. Overall, not great, but not bad either.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance of this beer is a clear brownish orange color with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends caramel malts, nutty malts, and dough yeast, which is really pleasant. The taste is a very nice blend of a slight sourness, slight sweetness, and a touch of umami. Also, the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, fairly abrupt yet malty finish, and thin texture.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good label, standard US longneck. Clear, deep tawny bronze, not much head. Fruity, sweet malt aroma. Sweet, pruney, a bit tangy, dominated by malts up front - dries out and gets a bit biscuity towards the end. Finish is warming and woody. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Champanes in Warren,
this beer had a crystal clear red-brown pour and made a nice cover of faint off-white bubbles that lowered to a thin cover and ring, it left some lacing on the sides of the glass, and there was no sediment in the bottle,
there were malty aromas that resembled something of toasted malt and bread, some malt and bread like sweetness, a touch of earth in the background and a little alcohol (that was not overbearing and did not take away from enjoying this drink but was noticeable), no hops that I could tell,
it had flavors of malt and bread with a little malt sweetness, the finish had a gentle bitterness with some malt flavor afterwards,
I could tell this Octoberfest beer had more alcohol (6.6%) than your typical Octy drink but the alcohol was not overbearing or too strong, just noticeable,
there was a light mouth feel to this beer and it had a little creaminess on the palate,
a nice Octoberfest beer.
