2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light malt note of cereal, moderate herbs for the hops, with a hint of medicine. Head is average size, frothy/rocky with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery but a little slick and has a lively carbonation. Drinkable, but the only aspect of this beer that says Oktoberfest for me is the appearance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice deep copper with khaki head. The aroma is quite malty with some herbal and metallic hints, maybe some raisin and caramel. The flavor is very straightforward: Munich malt, slight herbal hops in the finish. Not much going on here, but not terrible. I would prefer it be a bit richer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear, coppery-golden with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweeter caramel and honey notes with accents of lemon meat and a touch of leaves.. almost candied and certainly pleasant. The flavor found sweet caramel again at the core.. tart on the edges with lemon zest and a touch of earthy bitterness.. finished a little too sharp for my liking. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. started out alright, but didn’t really finish that way.

12 ounce bottle opened 9/16/10. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, faint fruity notes and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, faint berry-like fruits and a nutty, grassy finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-copper color, clear, good head retention and lacing. Robust German malt aroma and some toasted malt in the nose. Medium-bodied, highly carbonated which is a nice balance to the sweetness of the malt. Good finish, semi-dry. A solid example of the Oktoberfest style.
