3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle has been sitting in my fridge for a few months now. Just now getting around to drinking it. Poured into my Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours amber orange with a small one finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.
S - Smells of lightly toasted bready caramel malt, light spice, and some dulled hops. Not too much going on but that really isn’t a bad thing.
T - Starts off with a big bready caramel malt kick slowly giving way to a mix of light toffee sweetness and dulled grassy hops. Finish is chewy, lingering for some time. A bit old but still pretty good.
M - Medium-Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.
O - While I think this one is a bit past its prime I still enjoyed it. I will have to try and get some this year so I can compare the two.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice amber orange color with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is slightly toasted and roasted. Slight graininess with hint of floral spice or white pepper and maybe some honey. Taste is somewhat what you would expect but smoother, definitely a lager with toffee and honey notes, roasted notes as well. Medium thin body. A very drinkable Oktoberfest, probably one of the best I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at New Glarus. Pours a clear deep golden amber with active carbonation head that settles to spotty lacing and edge head. Aroma is sweet barley and caramel malt with mild bready yeast notes. Flavor is sweet and simple, but pleasant: caramel malt, biscuity yeast complexity, and mild corn/fruit sweetness in the finish. Thin to medium bodied, active carbonation, and lingering apple-like fruit finish.
