Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 22, 2013
THOUGHTS: I thought it smelled very nice at first, but maybe interesting was a better word. A little more citrusy than most oktoberfests. A rare beer because I loved the aroma, but sort of disliked the flavor. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium, brownish orage with an average, off-white head that kept a decent sheet. The aroma was heavy bread, cookie, caramel, graham cracker, toast, pie crust and cake; moderate grassy hops; light citrus hops; and something slightly like Cap’n Crunch. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet, heavily bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was caramel, maple syrup, grassy hops, lighter citrus hops, floral hops, dark breads, cookie, and cake. The light to medium body was a little syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

355ml bottle. Slightly lighter oktoberfest pour. Very clean and basic malty aroma. Very light and unoffensive lager, like their summer lager but a bit bolder.

DATE TASTED: September 12, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Sam Adams lager... OCCASION: Licking the wounds of a 6-0 Division 5 soccer drubbing... APPEARANCE: beautifully effervescent copper body with a sudsy, soapy, creamy head that settles neatly to a tangible ring--a picture-perfect start! Lacing is commensurate with its beer level... AROMA: soft caramel and biscuit, with a buttery suggestion; some iron/rust hints as well... PALATE: smooth, almost swift in its attempt to reach the throat; mildly effervescent,despite its appearance; weak aftertaste; definitely sessionable--almost too much so... TASTE: the caramel is the dominant flavor, though it is understated in comparison to other fests; sweet with the suggestion of apple and pear, odd in the style; some metallic Saaz ping to boot--the profile is an odd mashup...OVERALL: After having heard great things about Schlafly, I am surprised by this offering’s rather askew taste profile; the body is smooth and enticing, but the payoff is a beefed-up macro rinser...

Pours clear amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is malty but muted. Taste is heavy malt with medium carbonation on the tongue. Has a funky aftertaste, very yeasty. Not bad.

arminjewell (8752) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of toast, yeast, bread into a bit of biscuit, some slight caramel into a bit of grass, herbal notes. Taste was a mix of grass, herbs, slight red fruit into some caramel, toasted bread, hints of grain, finishing slightly sweet.

MrBunn (2596) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a slightly orange hue to it. Almost no head on this one and any bubbles are gone quickly. Aromas of honey, dough, apple juice. Flavor is a nice mix of malty sweetness and light fruit. Very nice Oktoberfest.

I think this is a little past its prime. Pours a little brown with OK head and lacing. A little bit of a sour mash aroma. Bottle.
