3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this at our last tasting.
Pours with a large off-white head that falls rather quickly.
Bready, toasty aroma with lots of fruitiness. Almost bubblegum.
Lightly sweet, smooth palate. The fruity aspect renders this less clean than a true O’fest, but a very drinkable and tasty brew.

Orange, with a beige head.Caramel and toffee-ish aroma. Notes of caramel in the flavor, as well. Understated. As it warms, a fruity character emerges.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12ozer from Bu11zeye, as an extra. Aroma is malty, bready, celery and carrot, chicken. Pours a very boring orange with almost no head. Pure german malt flavor, veggies and a touch of earthy hops. Good body, but nothing special at all.

12 oz. bottle a gift from decaturstevo - Pours a clear amber color with a nice size off white head. Light spotty lacing left when the glass is tipped. Has a light toasted bread malt aroma. Has a toasty caramel malt flavor. Flavor lingers on the palate. Medium body. Worth a try. Thanks Steve.

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.
