3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours a transparent, copper/auburn with a half-finger, off-white head that thins to a film fast.
Aroma is large with big notes of caramel, bread, hallertauer hops, and a touch of raisins, dark fruits, sweet potato, and spices.
Taste is malty but balanced. A touch of caramel on the finish.
Low-medium body and carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a refreshing finish makes this very drinkable.
Overall tasty and just what I’d expect from an Octoberfest beer. Probably would buy again next fall.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber. Not a very powerful aroma. Good flavor, malty and slightly spicy along with some honey/bready sweetness. Worth a try

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No aroma to speak of. Has a mild bitterness to balance out the spices, and I like that. Unfortunately there isn’t much else to the beer, but it’s better than I was expecting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle. Color is a deep golden amber, and is very clear. Nice amount of head when poured but dissipated within a couple minutes. Has tastes of caramel. It is very sweet. It only tastes like one thing, very one dimensional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out of bottle into goblet. Initial smell was that of hops, but quickly dissipated. Clear reddish amber color with white thin head. Lacing forms on the glass as you drink. Sweet taste that lingers from wheat taste. Hops come into play, but die out. A quick fizzy light feel on the palate that lingers in the back of the mouth. Overall, not the best Octoberfest beer I’ve tasted, but is not terrible. Sort of middle of the road.
