COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Noble Chaos is an Oktoberfest/Marzen (German-style amber lager) with a subtle hop bouquet and toasted caramel malt flavors. It is a well-balanced beer that finishes fresh and clean. With a pleasant nose and medium body, this brew is a taste of the fall season.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear light brown brew with pale off white head. Dense head upon pouring, settles to a half a finger of persistent foam. Great lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel, lightly toasted malt. Taste is moderate caramel and a rich nuttiness, ends with a moderate noble hops flourish that slakes any lingering sweetness. Full and satisfying palate. A superior Oktoberfest/Marzen.

On tap at Ashley’s. Pours a somewhat transparent, dark ruddy cherrywood color with a thin, wispy layer of off-white head. Quite dark for an Oktoberfest, and the aroma shows it, too. Lots of caramel and light chocolate going on, along with notes of prune flesh and some nutty, woody bark. Smells a bit dark, heavy, and astringent, and the palate reveals this is no misconception. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. A pleasant amount of chewy malt up front, and while not overly sweet, it has this dark, borderline roasty, woody astringency that makes this taste a bit more in the lines of a bock. Plenty of caramel and dark malt qualities, but not much Munich malt flavor. Finishes dry, with more of that woody astringency and a kiss of noble hops on the back end. Drinkable and somewhat enjoyable, but not to style.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of infection. Medium amber hue with a small off-white head that fully diminished and left no lace. Flavor is undrinkable, completely infected(no surprise there from Short’s) Palate is thin and watery with average carbonation. Overall another infected bottle from Short’s. I hate this crap.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has a really nice grainy and malty texture to it. Caramel, roast, light banana and spice are the most prevelent scents. Appearance is a very cloudy orangish brown with a medium slightly off white head. Taste has got a really nice an complex texture, malt, grain, light fruit, hops, and spice are intermingled together quite well. Palate is medium carbonation and a light roasted malt aftertaste that is enjoyable. Overall. I think this is a really nice and proper to style Oktoberfest beers. Cheers!

a woody, caramel, and greenly hoppy brew. rich and toasty malt, with clean lager notes and a classic octoberfest profile. no noticeable booze, nicely balanced and a medium body. more hops than a typical octoberfest but it’s quite a nice touch, and one i would gladly drink for most of the fall season!

Transferring my rating from Beer Advocate. Pretty good stuff. Not the biggest fan of the style but I thought it had a nice quenching quality to it.

Hazy copper brown pour with a 1-finger, off-white head. The aroma is sweet and nutty with notes of toasted almond, toast, light cocoa, and subtle zesty noble hops. The flavor is very nutty and toasty upfront, with some chalky cocoa powder in the middle and finishing with spicy, floral hop bitterness. Soft, clean medium body with moderate carbonation. It has a nice deep roasty full flavored character for an Oktoberfest style.

Bottle from drake party store. Amber brown pour. Thin offwhite head that began disappearing immediately. Typical Octoberfest beer smells: root beer, deep caramel and malt. Low carbonation. Malt predominates overall but that's just the side of the spectrum this beer lies on, it's not the focus. Flavors of Carmel and roasted nuts, it's bright like cola. Finish is smooth, more roasted nuts and caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
