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.

"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."

On tap, poured clear reddish orange with white head. Aroma had some slight notes of toffee, caramel and biscuit, touch of earth and spice in there as well. Taste was a bit better, with more pronounced spice, toffee notes in there along with the grass and biscuit, finished fairly clean with a slight lingering spice note.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle shared at The Royale, but I believe he got it at Wine and Cheese Place. Hell of a label; I’m liking the new artwork for Left Hand. Pours a clear copper color with a small bone white head. Aroma is almost reminiscent of a lighter mead, with honey, caramel malts, and ripe red apples. The flavor shows all of these, along with some nutmeg and Vienna and Munich malts. Medium-bodied, with a sticky mouthfeel and low carbonation. Sweet and smooth. This is a great take on the style, and way underrated.

A pretty regular oktoberfest, good nose and flavor that reminds you of wheat, pumpkin, corn and other earthy substances. Fits the style nicely.
