Silly trick or treaters intruding on this rating. No carbonation, what so ever, but more flavor than I thought. Pretty decent.

12oz bottle (best served at 42F per the bottle) - pours pale amber with bubbly head. Nose is floral and caramel. Wow, I just want to keep sipping this. Warming finish. Surprised by this Rivertown creation. Very easy to drink.

phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle from a mixed pack purchased at Kroger. Pours a mostly clear copper with initially lively carbonation but becomes flat quickly. Aroma of graham crackers, toffee, toast, leaves, honey, and brown sugar. Sweet smell. Flavor of toast, brown sugar, nuts, mild spice, earth, and cardboard. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. A little off style but not bad.

The aroma of this beer is very strong and smells like a fall day. The taste is very smooth and not like a lot of other Oktoberfests and that’s good.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent copperish orange with off-white lacing. Smells doughy and malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A decent Oktoberfest.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small +off hite head. The aroma is lightly toasted caramel malts and mild hops. The flavor has a lightly toasted caramel malt base with some earthy hops. pretty standard for what it is. Worth trying once for the tickers of the world.

Taster at the brewery. I’d say this is a average Oktoberfest. Good flavoring, smooth and easy drinking, but nothing overly exciting either.

JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle from a sixer purchased at Giant Eagle in New Albany. Clear amber pour with a huge off-white head. Malty and caramelly nose, a bit funky and oxidized. Malt and caramel flavor with a funky and tart finish.

Twist off cap on a short stubby bottle. Pours like a fest. Smell is a little clean metallic. Quite strong initial alky blast, now I see its 7%. Yes, I’d say an almost impy fest. Malty mixture lacking much fest festiveness. Almost has an old lager feel to it. A little sizzly at time and this saves it. Looks like a fest but its more than a fest. Some medicinal attributes on the finish.
