3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, via trade w/ TChrome. Pours a hazy copper, small thin white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is of generous amounts of caramel malt with accents of toffee. Nice caramel malt flavor, again with some toffee. Nicely balanced with a lightly alcoholic crisp finish. Creamy and medium bodied in the palate. This is a nice example of an American Oktoberfest.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with a short fizzy head. Sweet, fruity aromas with some caramel. Tastes of soft malts and apples, Crisp with a clean finish. Probably too hoppy for the style, but I really didn’t care.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2005 12 oz twist off bottle. I opened the bottle and there was nothing. I thought it was flat. I ended up forming a head that faded to quickly for me to not any color. The beer is a copper orange with no visable carbonation. I get caramel and punpkin spice in the nose. Munich malts and some caramel. Clean bitterness. No much hop character, as it should be. Full bodied. Rolls over the tongue. I’d like another some time.

This beer manages a rich mouthfeel and slightly spiced flavor while remaining crisp and refreshing. Pour is attractive copper.

Good octoberfest beer with the aroma of red apples. not to sweet or to earthy. tastes better out of the bottle than on draft

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper body with a few suspended particles. The head is small and fleeting. The aroma is malty but slight. The flavor actually makes it a pretty decent Oktoberfest. Nicely malty toast and caramel is supported by a hint of that pruniness you sometimes get in doppelbocks and some trick of the olfactory system provides a touch of whiskey-barrel oak in the finish. An enjoyable and chuggable Oktoberfest. Good for getting me into the mood for Oktoberfest this weekend at 5 Seasons.

Tap at the Flying Saucer, Addison. Poured a clear deep amber color with a very thin white head. Malty aroma of caramel. Sweet malty flavor matched the aroma with the caramel. A little spicy on the finish.

actually not too bad. not great though. body is light, not much of an oktoberfest, more so an amber in my opinion. aroma is light caramel and wheat. taste is a bit of caramel along with kinda on off flavor from crystal malt.
