3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt with light biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by medium caramel malt with a dryer aftertaste and some light chewy biscuit malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but came a bit short in terms of malt backbone.

The beer was part of the Mill Street Autumn Harvest 6-pack with Nightmare on Mill Street Pumpkin. The beer pours a golden-orange colour with absolutely no head. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, and some flowery hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour has a definite metallic tang to it. mixed in with sweet grainy notes. I have two more of these I may wait a while to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a straw yellow/orange colour? Short lived head. The aroma is straight up maltyness, and all grain bread. The flavour is big on the malt and biscuits, grains and bread. Pretty straight forward. Enjoyable though.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle gracefully offered by czar. Pours a clear, yellowish orange amber with a nice white head. Smell is lackluster malt. Taste is very malty, caramel, grilled bread, hazelnut, and...veggies? oak? Hard to tell. Finish is earthy, spicy, peppery. Some yeast in there, bread, more spice. Incredible amount of flavors in there. Body is medium to strong. A very positively surprising, excellent oktoberfest beer. Loved it!

355ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with a good sized tan head. Lots of malt on the nose with caramel, and fruity undertones. Easy drinking with a good malt profile, straw and cereal notes, and a crisp, bitter finish. Captures the style well. Solid.
