3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of caramel, fresh bread. Nice clear deep orange colr. Huge tan head, lingers a bit. Creamy rich malt up front. Charred caramel and some notes of toffee. Bitterness fills in quick, slightly off balance as sweetness dissipates quickly. Finish is on the bitter side but not off putting. slightly watery mouth feel. O.k.

Might be my favorite Oktoberfest. Perfect blend and flavor. Light caramel flavor with that hint of yeast. Love this beer and this time of year...

12 oz Can -- Pours deep amber with a very thin off-white head. Aromas of roasted malt, almond, caramel, and some mild bandage. Falls a little flat taste wise. A bit thin but pleasent.

Caramel and toast make up the aroma. Taste starts with sweet caramel and a toast like flavor to carry into the middle. It then finishes with herbal hops

From a can, nice clear amber orange pour, minimal white head. Aroma is fresh bread, hints of caramel. Flavor is mild malts.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of toasted bread, biscuit, toffee into some slight grass, herbal hops with an earthy note, slight grainy-ness to it as well. Taste was a mix of grain, grass, biscuit into a bit of toffee, caramel, toasted bread and burnt toast, some spice, grass, finishing slightly dry.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 ounce can purchased at Delhi Liquor Store (fka One Stop Party Shop), tasted on October 26, 2014. Slightly cloudy amber hue, moderate toasted malt/sugary nose, smooth toasted malt flavor--not much hoppiness but what’s impressive about this beer is that it has none of the harshness/off flavors found in lesser examples of the style. It doesn’t have the depth of flavor of Moerlein Fifth & Vine Oktoberfest but I’m giving it the same score. Really nice brew.
