3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a really enjoyable beer that showcases the potential of lager. Beer pours cloudy, reddish amber in color with a nice thick, totally retained beige colored head. Aromas of caramel and hay are present. Taste is mostly sweet with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Prost!

Clear orange with a good amount of visual carbonation. The head is thin and off white. Aroma of sweet malt. Smooth lager taste with some spritz from the carbonation. Not as malty as others. Nice clean finish and the feeling of wanting more.

Aroma of hay and grass. The color is amber and the look is cloudy with a frothy white head. This one has a sweet taste. With a medium body, and a creamy texture, the finish is long and sweet. This a satisfying malty brew to enjoy in the fall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a very light, airy/bubbly white head, a semi-cloudy, lightly-carbonated orange/amber color. The aroma is of light caramel malts, lightly roasted, sweet, and soft on the nose. As soon as it hits your mouth, you feel sweet roasted malt on the lips and tongue. It’s sweet and tangy in the throat, full, but smooth - and yet light - in the mouth. The flavor is really nice for an Oktoberfest. Very sessionable, as expected for the style, with a little more of that roasted, almost toasted malt/caramel sweetness on the tongue. A really good Oktoberfest!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 Surprisingly good effort here! Slightly nutty and sweet melanoiden on the nose with crisp, lagery undertones. Not completely clean on the finish, but it does finish somewhat dry. Real Ale is doing it right with some of these limited/seasonal release beers.

Nose is a deep caramel malt. Thicker mouthfeel with a wonderfully approachable structure and finish. Pretty straightforward on the palate. Malts and a clean hint of bitter on finish. Made for drinking. Not for examining.

Bottle:   Deeper caramel in color, modeate frothy off-white head, decent lacing.   Malty aroma, slight
cereal and mealiness.   Has a bit of graininess to it too.   Malty tongue, slight sweet, a little mealy but
not bad.   Not grainy on the tongue, thankfully.   Pretty straight forward and clean.   Body and mouthfeel
are moderate to full.   Feels pretty smooth.   Rich maltiness on the backside, even a little sticky.
Kinda finishes rather bland.   Most of the stuff is up front.   Soft maltiness lingers.   While its clean,
it needs a little more umph.   Thanks Bill for the bottle!
