2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Amber, with small white head. Malty nose, with caramel. Malty flavor, but a little dry in the finish. Could be a bit more malty, and the body was a little watery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich, semi-transparent mahogany with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma is malty and hoppy and has an undertone of spice, mainly cloves. Flavor is mouth-filling and mainly malty and a little spicy. Texture is smooth and very pleasant. A fine fall beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color was a clear medium brown and a decent head. The aroma was surprisingly hoppy. The flavor has a good malt caramel base but I wouldn't call it really malty. The hops came in with a crisp bitterness that made this a very drinkable Oktoberfest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bronzy-amber in color, topped by a whisper of beige foam. Bakery aromas of biscuity malt, along with earthy hops. Flavors of breadcrust, wood, walnuts, perhaps cookie dough? Absolutely no fruitiness. Pleasantly full-bodied, for the style. Finish is rich yet dry, with breadcrust, woody, and herbal hop aftertastes. Bring on the bratwurst!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear reddish brown beer fresh from the tap. Nice hoppy aroma otherwise was difficult to get the other smells due to the max lagers wood fire grill smoke in the aire. Minimal head with some lacing. Super flavor with hops up front and crisp, dry malt finish. Nice locally brewed seasonal.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Intense, purply-orange, clear brew with a tan thin head. Sweet, carmelized malty aroma, but it reminded me a bit of malt likka. Woody bitterish finish, along with diacetyls and varous other chemicals. Plenty of diacetyl as things go along.
