3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml brown bottle that is corked and caged, from the LCBO. Production date: 01/08/2012. Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber colour with an off-white head, that is big, frothy, long-lasting and with foamy lacing. Aromas of bread, with some caramel malt, figs and other dark fruits. Medium-bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel. The taste is a decent mix of the malts, fruits and mild hops. Grainy cereal malt, sweet toffee and the hops just mildly drying off the finish. This is quite a nice Oktoberfest.

Pours a manukah honey orange with a thin white cap. The aroma is grassy, herbal, light biscuit, cardboard, and caramel malts. Flavour reflects even everything in the aroma with a long lightly spicey finish accented by the caramel malts.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and toasty malt - really nice. The taste is toasty, biscuity malt, with a clean, medium body, and a light hop finish. Really well-balanced and interesting take on this style!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy orange-brown with a whole lot of foamy tan head. Smell is spicy and sweet, some cloves and some sweet cereal, though not very pronounced. Palate is fairly light, with some carbonation, but not a whole lot. Taste is a bit sweet at first with a tiny bit of spiciness, but then gives way to a good bitterness which gets more intense as time goes on. Aftertaste is long lasting bitterness. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served in a 1L dimpled stein. :D Apperance: Cloudy orange brown, huge white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma: Very spicy. Notes of cloves, cinnamon, paprika. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, slightly dry lingering finish, but not as harsh as most oktoberfests. Taste: sweet start, fairly savoury middle, slightly bitter in the finish. I’m not a huge oktoberfest fan, but I quite enjoy this variation.
