3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a light copper color with a finger or so of white head.
S: Nice breadiness to it with some lightly toasty and nutty malts to it. Mild hop character which is lightly spicy and grassy. Hints of toffee and caramel are also present.
T: Toffee and bread give a lot of the beer most of its flavor and the sweetness. Mild hop flavor are here with some grassy, floral, and earthy notes, but hardly any bitterness. A definite yeasty character also exists.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: An okay Oktoberfest, but not the greatest.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of sweet, roasted malt; backed by a bit of citrus hop (small bit). The vigorous white head dissipated quickly. Very nice amber color. Decent mouthfeel. Starts with a bit of caramel, followed by earthy, roasty tones. The hop is present, but it is playing second fiddle. It’s a bit sweet on into the finish, and the hop does not quite balance this. Interesting, though. Demonstrates how an ale can surpass a lager in a classic style (at least the bottle says ale, and the excellent aromas and flavors support that).
