3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange body with a small wispy off-white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is slight sweet but a bit grainy as well. Not much in the way of aroma hops. The flavor is not quite as smooth as I would hope for, it’s a little husky and rough with a slightly thinner than desired body as well. A slight hop bitterness towards the finish, but it’s fairly light. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Ok, but a little lacking in body and smoothness for my preference in the style.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, melanoidin notes and dates with earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is sweet malt dominant, light earthy and spicy hops with light hop bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Used to drink this stuff when I lived in RI. A good go to local brew. Not worth buying for the price out of state if you see it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This local boy is copper colored and smells as much like a brown ale as a marzen lager. In any case, the smell is very malty. Drinking his beer is is like eating a slice of fermented white bread. The brewer’s description lists the hops used, but the low IBU figure reflects that they are lost in the mix. Medium body, soft finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted and nutty malts with floral and slightly citrusy hops. Flavor strong on the malts. Average texture, and a little smoother than most of this style. A decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to my mom for picking up the sixer. Mildly hazy amber-orange color, medium head fading to minimal, leaving a little lacing. I usually find oktoberfest beers to be boring, but I can tell from the first sip that this one is a good one. It has enough hops to give it a bit of flavor to the typical savory malt. A touch of bitterness. Pronounced carbonation, but satisfactory texture. A good pairing to my grape leave rolls.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a murky orange color with a citrus like aroma. Very zesty bubbles. It doesn’t taste bad but seems to lack something I can’t nail down. The citrus hops lingers on your tongue.
