2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On Tap. Standard Oktoberfest. Malt, spice with a bit of apple taste. This did have a hoppy after taste which seems to be a Paper City signature. Nothing special, but if you like this style you may like this one. I’m not big into this style but it is the season,so I will try what I can hoping for something exceptional.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle poured an amber in color with good initial carbination settling down with a thin head. smell is malts, caramel, spice, and is lightly sweet. taste is medium on the mouth feel, caramel malt on the tongue, and finishes slightly dry with a slight bitterness. decent beer, perhaps the style is not my favorite either.

Light fruit and a definite sweet malt aroma come from the copper colored body. The palate is thin to medium. Sweet caramel malt makes up the majority of the flavor--and even though this is one dimensional--that one dimension is done well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottles acquired in trades with jpm74 & ppoitras (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Initial whiffs gave me a strong caramel smell. I then picked up juicy apples and some toasted malts. Tastes of toasted malts, lighter caramel, toffee, and a lighter (well, lighter than the aromas) apple fruitiness. Caramel apples come to mind. I guess I’ll go against the majority as I actually liked this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear, light amber lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Rich, toasted aroma with notes of caramel and nuts. The flavor is malty and rich, but crisp; moderately sweet, but also moderately bitter. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Mid-length, seared caramel, gently bitter finish. This one definitely improved as it warmed. Thank you jjpm74 for sending this one my way!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangey red with a nice tuft of a head. Nose is fruity with malts. This is a clean and crisp brew, but just doesn’t have enough flavor to make it work. Sweet caramels mixed in with the fruit are just not enough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Julio’s. Best by 01/27/06, got that covered. Ok nose, sweet. Yeasty/sourdough, little egg/sulphur, caramel, apple. Clean brownish orange color, small head that faded to a ring. Sweet flavors, like aromas with a little spice and pumpkin kickin around. Medium body, lite oily creamy mouthfeel, , sweet dry finish. Eh, i don’t know. I think its a style I’ll never get excited about.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper with a small head attributed by the person pouring from the tap. Aroma is butterscotch and sweet hops. Taste is malty, maple, fall leaves and toffee. Creamy mouthfeel and just the right amount of crbonation. I’d like to see a bit more hop kick but oh well. Sweet flavors.
