2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(12oz bottle) Big off-white head atop lightly hazed amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread/caramel, light candi sugar. Taste is moderately sweet, candi sugar, some caramel, alcohol. Light-medium body. Not a typical O-fest, but not wholly sure I like what they did.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a quite carbonated, translucent brown-gold with a fluffy but quickly dissipating khaki head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, toffee. Initial crispness backed by a slightly viscous mouthfeel, bittersweet finish, lingering caramel. Well done.

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.

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