3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Poured this one with real low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Golden amber with a nice foamy white head. Grainy and malty on the nose, with a good deal of yeast and a touch of tropical fruit. Taste has a nice malty base, smooth with a decent hop snap. Really nice fruity grains and a touch of sugary caramel. Smooth and well-carbonated. Not much to analyze, but easy drinking and decent taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle. Cloudy orange tan color. Sweet and sugary, with a 6-row grainy mouthfeel. Sub-par stuff all the way, odd light orange soapiness. Unimpressive. A pinch better than macro swill, I suppose.

sampler flight at the brewpub. golden yellow with a wispy white head. another mild, but yet nicely flavored beer with earthy grains and caramel malts. mildly bitter with some mineral notes. almost bland, but has enough going on to make it an acceptable session beer on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet malt in initial aroma,almost like a frosted wheats,that fades into a softer grain malt and a tickle of hopping,very light malt flavor,the nice grain aroma doesnt translate to the taste,kind of a grain bitterness,that leaves a bitter coating on your palate,goes down nice enough if your thirsty. Nice enough

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of MrPickles. Thanks, Andy! Pours a bright, clear orange color; thin, off-white, fine-bubbled head. Aroma shows candy sugar and some light caramel, though not particularly complex beyond those base notes; tempered sweetness, at least. Medium body; lively carbonation; generally smooth in the mouth, with no overt alcohol; again, there isn’t a whole lot here beyond that basic candy / caramel sweetness, and the rendition overall comes off as a rather bland Oktoberfest rendition; modest mineral bitterness that gradually builds, but really nothing flavorful about it; quite bland, especially for 6.5%. Long finish of that basic candied sweetness, slightly stale; minerals.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with next to no head, just a thin white layer. Aroma of caramel, dusty malt, grains and faint hops. Taste of caramel, toffee, fruit and light citrus. Pretty easy drinking with a mild fruity and heavily malted finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a twelve ounce bottle.
Pours a dark straw with a nice sized off white head that leaves craggy clumps od soapy lace.
Aroma is similar to an English Pale. Mineral and caramel malt followed by herbal medicinal hops.
Flavor is sweet malt up front. Caramel and toasted bread with a hit of sweet dextrose. Hops come in the middle, enough bitterness, not much character but enough bitterness to cut the sweetness. Finishes dry with a substantial malt backing.
Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is usual for a bottled bitter, which is a bit higher than normal for the style.
Good beer, I would buy it again.
