2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a thin tan head that does not last. Aroma is malty with some sweetness and caremel. Taste is slightly sweet with plenty of caramel. Finishes smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I had to rerate this after finishing the bomber. Overall the malt profile seemed slightly cloying to me. I have had better Octoberfests from this brewery in the past.

10/9/2011. 22 oz. bottle. Pours copper color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aromas with caramel and light fruit. Flavors are a bit sweet throughout and not a lot of hops on the finish. Good example of the style.

Perfect seasonal brew. Color is amber red. Smells of honey, with a taste of Mellon, brown sugar and honey slightly toasted with nuts. Very good Legend beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a transparent copper amber with some creamy, slightly off white head. Smells very malty, cracker, grist, yeast, orange, bread crust. Flavor is malty, cracker, baked biscuit, a little root beer, some roasted parsnips, yeast. Smells and tastes like an altbier. Creamy finish. Decent, but not true to style.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Pours a clear copper with a modest amount of head. Not highly carbonated and really doesn’t leave any lacing in the glass. Smell is heavily caramel and taste follows up with extremely sweet caramel and breadiness. Mouthfeel is full bodied and creamy. I’d say this is a bit too sweet to be drinkable through the day but it makes a nice change of pace for a fall day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
