3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fort Wayne location. Aroma was lacking, but fairly true to style if not a bit sweet... which would be right up my alley. Easy drinking and not at all boozy, I like it.

On Tap. Pours a ruddy brown, slight head. Aroma is a light fruit malt. Taste is light roast malt with sweet fruit notes. Interesting for the style, body a bit thin. Decent octoberfest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear golden orange amber color. Thin white head, sort of bubbly. Good bits of lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Medium body. Caramel malts, toasty malt, and some good spicy hop. Above average bitterness, and moderate sweet. Solid oktoberfest, better than expected.

Hazy dark amber with small tan head.
Scent is caramel, malt.
A little toasted bread, fairly sweet.
Pretty straightforward stuff.
Good, just not a standout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from a growler courtesy of a traveling colleague. This brew is a clear pale golden color with a medium thin and fizzy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Toasted malt and a bit of spice in the nose. Light body with flavors of bready malt and caramel, as well as touches of spiced hops. The finish is short and malty. Overall a basic Oktoberfest that I probably wouldn’t bother with again.

draft - Porus copper with a thin head and a light malt aroma. The flavor is malty with some light hops and a too thin body. The finish is sweet and smooth.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
half pint at MA - Aroma is pure malt, fresh and toasty with some toffee. Pours clear orange with small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a stronger toastines. Palate lingers but thats about it. Not bad but boring.
