2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy burnt orange with a thick beige head that settles slowly, leaving some spots of lace. Nose involves caramel, toasted malt, cellar-ish notes, and some noble spice. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter, in balance. Medium bodied, oily, fairly active, with a lingering toasty bitter and dry finish. Really nice and drinkable, hits the style over the head.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a standard tulip glass. Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Small amount of lacing. Malty taste with a little bit of bitterness. Overall not a ton of flavor for an Oktoberfest beer. Not bad, but nothing special.
