3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Spec’s in Austin. The newest Real Ale release in bottles and, as is the custom in Texas, the label has the prerequisite TABC nonsense on it: "Malt Liquor." Poured a clear, light amber body topped with some soapy head that sticks around quite a while. Aroma is lightly malty sweet, grassy hops, a little funky and some biscuit. Flavors of bready malt, some toffee, roasty, toasted nuts and slightly grassy/herbal hopps in the end. Fairly clean finish leaves you looking for that next sip. Medium mouthfeel and active carbonation. Solid effort. I’m looking forward to drinking more of this when the weather is more O-Fest like.

Tried on tap at the Rockwall Flying Saucer. Pours orangish amber, about like you would expect an Oktoberfest to look. Smell is malty with a little sweetness. Taste is similar. Not the best Oktoberfest out there, but a good representation of the style that will not disappoint you.

A very appealing O-fest. Creamy mouthfeel with wonderful malty goodness. TBS- the malt is not overt in any way, but restrained and subtle. A lovely beer that I wish had been around a few weeks ago when O-fest were what I was craving.

Tap at GABF.
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.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy copper gold with a small frothy white head that leaves decent spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is light hop with wheat grass and coriader. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter wheat grass and grain with a clean finish. A good marzen from real ale.
