2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with a layer of whitish head. Aroma is slightly malty but mostly yeast esters. Taste is sweet and malty. You can definitely get the caramel malts in the aroma and the taste. There are some slightly stale off flavors but they are ultimately overshadowed by the caramel malts. One of the better Leinenkugel’s I have had. A nice break from all their fruity beers.

A solid base hit. Pours a nice copper with a lingering off white head. Aromas of: caramel, grass, and dough. Fairly balanced flavor profile with a nod to the sour. Nice palate with a little stickiness. Sessionable.

Draft. Copper color with white head and some lacing. Faint beer aroma. Light malt flavor with faint caramel notes. Not much on flavor but not terrible.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium clear amber from can to can glass. Light head. Beery aroma upon opening then a typical Oktoberfest aroma of malt mineral and nutty caramel.Gets nutty toast and vegetably after a while with cabbage/corn/fartspray/ DMS/dogfood- off or odd smelling. Taste wants to be octoberfesty then falls flat and a bit watery/beery in a light lager kind of way. Not too disappointed enjoyed it when it was cooler but gets off tasting as it warms. Cold out of the can this would be good for session drinkers who like light beer but like a change in the season. I might even enjoy this a little more than the average Oktoberfest.

12 oz bottle. Orange caramel color with no head to speak of. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is mostly boozy with a little malt. Orange rind, caramel, light malts. Very light for a Marzen.

Very easy porter to drink. Lovely vanilla aftertaste that lessen the normally bitter porter finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A: Caramel color bordering on red. Thin creme head. Not much lacing.
N: Biscuit, weird cheese off flavor, some hops.
T: Weird combo of sweet, bitter, and funky?
M: Prickly carb, creamy light body.
O: Uhh...not close. A dartboard beer. In that they didn’t actually follow a classic recipe. Don’t bother.
