3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark clear amber with a ruby tint and a shallow head. Aroma is light, some nondescript malt.
Taste is roasty malt, almost like plain toasted whole-grain bread. Grainy flavors, light nuttiness, well-caramelized malts, seems like a blend of many. A mild sweetness and a faint oven-roasted, coffee-like presence. Not a strong hop presence at all.
Mouthfeel is medium to light, very smooth and easy to drink. Much maltier, more body than most US O-fests. Like drinking a piece of dry toast made from heavy bread.

Clear dark amber with a sticky thin light beige head. Aroma is kinda plain and biscuity, and lightly earthy sweet. Luckily the flavor is a little deeper, with nice marzen cracker/toffee/cereal/English muffin sweet maltiness. Dry amber finish.

Draft At Chilis in the DFW Airport The beer pours a clear amber with a thin wispy head which dissipates to a white collar. Very limited lacing. The taste was of sweet caramel with hints of hops. The medium body beer had soft carbonation. Nice beer true to the Marzen style Oktoberfest.

This is an Oktoberfest. It is a beer. It is OK. I drank it. I did not find it in the least repulsive. Had I not had so many others that I enjoyed I might think more of it. I think I will go back o the ones I like more. Thanks for playing!

Brewery tour in pint glass. Wonderful aroma and flavor of sweet German malts. Hop flavors are low and more malt aromas then hops. Good smooth palate to the finish. Above average overall.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap. Glass mug. 84 degrees on a Texas patio. Nutty and easy to drink. Zero head retention. Very thin and lacking. If drank a few of these I’d still be sober and my palate would be damaged for the rest of the evening.

Clear reddish brown pour with a thin cream head. Nice toasty nutty aroma with some caramel. Taste is bread, nuts, caramel, but it has a burnt quality to it.
