1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
this just isnt a good beer. Amber pour. Metallic and malty aroma. Flavor is full of a weird tart metallic component that totally made me drain pour it. Nasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear copper lager with a small, tight, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. Toasted nuts and caramel nose. Caramel-sweet flavor with decent hop crispness and bitterness to keep things nearly balanced. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet; bordering on crisp.

Bottle @ home. Dark amber appearance with an off white head. Toasty caramel malty, slightly nutty, toffee, lightly grassy-floral hoppy nose. Grassy, caramel, toffee malty lager flavor with some floral notes. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to pilsnerpeter for sharing. Deep amber-coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly toasty with a lightly burnt malt character. Brown sugar and toasty aroma. Flavour matches the aroma nicely. Malty and caramelly with a touch of spiciness. Lightly grainy sweetness. Fairly clean.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse bottled 08.27.08. Red color with a thin head that disappears almost immediately. Boring and faint grainy aroma with some subtle caramel notes. Very grainy taste with a nutty and leafy vibe going on. Some caramel and fruit notes as well. Medium bodied. Overall and very underwhelming oktoberfest.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty regular oktoberfest, good nose and flavor that reminds you of wheat, pumpkin, corn and other earthy substances. Fits the style nicely.

Thanks to Robert’s Reality for this. The pour was deep copper, with a 1 to 2-finger head. Caramel malt and some fruit was present in the aroma, with the flavor being caramel malt, some slight fruit, and some cabernet flavor in the finish.
