3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a pretty typical American Oktoberfest. Malty but perhaps too much caramel for the style, light German hops. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a dark copper colored body and left a one finger white foamy head, some nice ringy lacing was left around the sides of the glass. No carbonation was seen rising.
The smell seemed really off, bland and muted caramel tones with some light nuttiness to it.
The taste was basically the same.
The palate was a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable.
Overall, Iím not that impressed with this beer. Iíve had better Oktoberfests and this isnít one of them. I wonít seek this out again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, earthy and spicy hops, and light notes of dates. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, somewhat dirty malt, almost endol in flavor with a sweet finish. Medium body and light carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel sweetness, some bread. A little hoppier than a typical Oktoberfest. But overall, too timid. It needs a fuller body and a stronger flavor to be called an Oktoberfest.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of toast, citrus and earthy spices. Hazy orange...just like the leaves. Mineral laced bittersweet bready taste. Light body for amber ale, a tad cloying. Not what I expected for íOktoberfestí although suitably malty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is nice and malty, soft citric hops and crisp, clean, sweet malt. Pours a pretty amber-golden with a short off-white head. Body medium with lively crispness, low bitterness and a bready resolution, some great soft citric character in the style of noble hopped Central European lagers rather than brutish American IPAs. Lightly sweet with dull caramel, but dry enough to be repeatable. Tastes more like spring to me than autumn, but good either way!
