Bottle into pint glass, bubbly clear golden-hued amber color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, hay and light green apple-like fruitiness. Taste adds roasty malt, malt, graininess, honey, grass and light earthy hop bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp, just a tad dry with clean earthy toast finish. Pretty solid oktoberfest as an even better price.

$1.99 bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours medium golden with only a dusting of a head. Smells of autumn leaves, Apple, grass, metal. Flavor is all of the above minus the Apple. Finishes bitter metallic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 I had it from the bottle. It pours amber with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is caramel and hay. The taste is caramel malt, hay, bread. It?s smooth and drinkable It?s a pretty standard Octoberfest. It?s solid though.

hunch neighbor’s pooch escaped, we let it be, figured he still favors survival, and the old guy was hanging out back when I went to pee. Couldn’t get him over fence but figured out how to open back gate easily. Sort of hushed sounding foam, you’d expect more hype from a beer with a marketing department, but keep it cool, bedroom voices. Balanced and light like a matching sheet and comforter set in a fall breeze. Rich as the middle class of Europe, talking in a cafe in gentile yet pithy tones. Wouldn’t feel bad paying twelve euro for a litre mug of this, because I could drink a few of em, but I bet they wouldn’t even cost that much in Munchen. Good match up with Abita Octoberfest, a little more bitter. Each of these southern fests light and refreshing, made to sell many six packs and spare tires. Grain bill one you find easy to pay. Dryness reminds of a wet dog toweled off and sitting in sun for a while. http://unicornbrewing.com/faq/

Bottle - Pours medium to deep amber, white head. Aroma. ..this was a bit of a letdown as it had a weak nose, but I did get a malt presence and caramel. Better flavor... of roasted sweet malts, caramel, hints of dark fruits, and a mild hops presence and hops linger in the finish.

Decent. Dark gold. Minimal head that dissipates. Faint malt with some more faint spiciness. It’s ok.

Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of roast malts, caramel, and a touch of spice(nutmeg?). Flavor has a nice smooth sweet roasted taste(honey roast peanuts). A little bitter on the finish.

Bottle from Food Stop Rockville. Hazy amber light body with medium head. Nose is of barley, malts. Taste also malts and some hops and sweet caramel. Creamy texture. Okay.
