Long-black hair dude: What was the name of your band?
Pours an average amber with an aroma of burnt leaves and roasted malt. Nice, lingering moutihfeel but a thin body. Not bad; I’d drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid beer and one I’m glad to have around. I know I have a strange place in my brain for this beer style and can’t completely put my finger on why. While this stands on its own, it also somehow pays its respects to the style in having a rich, malty taste with a bitter finish that I enjoy.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Nose is of spice, grass with an earthy and nutty aroma. Taste is sweet enough with an earthy, graininess to it. Mouthfeel is medium-thin and watery with a slight bitterness and carbonation. Not a good oktoberfest.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber with a beige/off white head. Nose is malt heavy but not your typical caramel in an octo more bready, with the caramel in the background faintly. Nice mouthfeel and a smooth malt flavor with a light caramel finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
First to rate! Well, not really. Mar got to it before I did but I got to my computer before he did! Clear orange pour. Tastes malty obviously with a bitter leafy feeling. Sweet flavors are abound as well. Tingles over the palate. I let it warm up enough to rate the aroma. Nice but fading. Similar elements that are found in the flavor are also found on the nose. Finishes dry.
