2012 version. Pours a nice light copper colour, a little cloudy for an Octoberfest. Nice off white creamy head although it didn’t last too long. Clean pilsner malt in the nose giving me fresh baked baguette, some caramel hints, no discernible strong hop aroma, maybe a hint of floral hops (Hallertau I’m guessing). Malt forward profile in terms of flavour, slight nuttiness and caramel toastiness. subtle hop bitterness in the finish, which is moderately dry. Well carbonated which curtails the finish a little and makes me want more sooner :-) Overall very well crafted beer, unlike many of the Oktoberfest beers I am used to (although I have learned that the real Oktoberfest beer served in Munich during the festival is not the dark and very malty versions that seem to be common in North America). Nice bottle (haven’t seen many O beers in a 750ml corked bottle). Definitely worth trying.

Smells super malty. A good dose of swampiness. The beer pours super red and cloudy with alittle lacing. There’s a little spice in the aroma but I find myself struggling to see any real character in this beer. There’s a little honey as well. An easy to drink session beer though, and I guess that’s the idea here. On tap at volos.

Le liquide est cuivré et est très bien garni en ce qui concerna la mousse. Une dentelle se dessine de façon inégale. Maltée au nez, des effluves de poussières de grain en émanent, comme si on se trouvait tout près d’une moissonneuse-batteuse. En bouche elle est épicée, avec une touche fruitée, alors que s’ajoute un amalgame de sucre et d’herbes qui semble interférer avec les premières impressions. Elle laisse une douce amertume appréciable. Je ne lui trouve pas de qualités exceptionnelles, mais, avec de la saucisse et de la choucroute, c’était un excellent complément.

Bouteille 750ml. Couleur brun ambrée rappelant le scotch, mousse beige dense et riche. Arôme de céréales, de malt légèrement rôtis, de houblon et de caramel. Goût de céréales, de houblon, de caramel avec une légère amertume. Texture riche, carbonation faible.

asheft (2968) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
[bottle--didn’t notice any "S.S.", but 2012] Scotch tape and faint farmhouse aroma with some melanoidiny spiciness. Hazy bronze under a tan-orange ring. Spicy melanoidins and assertively bitter flavour with a dry finish, though the start was sweet. One sided with bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation (too much), moderately bitter finish.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
750 ml bottle, 2012 edition. Pours a hazy orange brown amber with a thick, long-lasting beige-orange head. Smells like grains and caramel. Extremely malty taste. Dry caramel, cereals, biscuits, toffee. More bitter than I was expecting, herbal. Barley candy taste in the finish, too. Medium to full bodied, somewhat sticky. It was good, but I remembered last year’s version being lighter, more accessible and, I’d say, somewhat better tasting...oh well, still pretty good, though!
