2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09240-DEO6. The pour is a rich amber-copper with a thin head. The aroma is slightly malted and has a hint of caramel in there. But it is somewhat appetizing. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is balanced with malts, caramel, and bitter hops. Overall it is mildly enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Typical Marzen in appearance, dark copper body with with a whitish creamy head. A very pronounced metallic aroma. Tasted better than it smelled. Not bad for a mass-produced American Octoberfest. I enjoyed it.

Looks like a normal Oktoberfest at the pour but it ends there. Aroma is pure yeast, and the flavor is watered down and not much different from any other mass produced lager. Glad I only bought a single.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An octfest attempt from a beer company I do not like. They are however striving for a better beer and I can totally respect that.
This needs more work.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Somone heard I liked "craft beers" so they got me a Michelob Sampler 12-pack. It not like I didn’t appreciate the gesture, by they have seen what I normally drink (and I can assure you it is not Michelob). Pours a nice amber-red with a very thin white head. Aroma is a caramalized malt back bone with a light hop pressence. Notes of fall spices (nutmeg maybe) are there. On the palate, it is light and refreshing. The flavor brings out a bit of fruity character, but the malt is still there. Overall, it was alright. Not bad for a macro.
