3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Pours a gorgeous cloudy orange gold. Smells of banana and wheat, more like a wheat then a marzen to me. Tasted very metallic and bready. It had a strange aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

12 oz bottle. Pours reddy copper in colour, moderate off white head. Aroma and taste are nice sweet caramel malt, and nice noble hops. Prob a little hoppy for the style, but very drinkable! Good stuff!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber/mahogany with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts. Flavor is more malty than caramel, with a low dose of bitterness. More on the bitter side than sweet. Interesting, and not too bad.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber. Small off white head. Aroma of roast and malt. Really big flavors of roast and caramel. Some bitter in the finish. Flavors are bolder and not as sweet as other Octoberfests I’ve had. Would like to try as draft to.

Bottle. Brownish. Light malt nose. Tastes of sweeter malts, but less caramely. Still has a decent yeast presence to mellow out the sweetness.

From a bottle. Solid, if a little boring. Some spicy quality, but not very round or complex.
