Pours a clear brown with a thin off white head. Mild aroma, mainly sweet malt. Flavor basically had some malt in there, but not a whole lot else. I was expecting more spices or something to really stand out from this beer. Very average.

Murky red brown with a small head. Light malt aroma with dry tannic toastiness and a touch of earthy hops. Dry and toasty flavor with a tannic bite and just a little sweetness. Coarse body. Not somethingij could get into. Needs some more malt and overall balance.

Draft sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy copper with an off white head. Aroma of malt, light citrusy hops, grain. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.

on tap from a small sampler glass, clear amber with small white head. nose is grainy with slighty malty notes to it. flavor seems like a bland lager if not for the hint of some maltiness. never as bready as you’d want an oktoberfest brew to be. decent. no major flaws.

Pours a murky copper with no head, looks like a soda. Lightly toasted malt aroma. The flavor is almost correct, if not for being too light and the alcohol ruins it. Slightly nutty toasted malt, nice lagered flavor. I could see this recipe being reworked into something delicious.
