3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can from Pinocchio’s. Pours a clear, amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is light, malty, bread. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, cereal, just a touch of bitter, grassy hops, with a light bready finish. Not bad, but forgettable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can from Oak Tree Liquors. Only my 2nd Sly Fox beer and my first in over three years, which is shocking considering I’m not that far away. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts with a bit of grain and faint caramel. The taste is toasted malts and caramel with an herbal hop finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation, well balanced, refreshing. Nice beer.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Draft at Tattooed Mom. Hazy amber orange amber pour. Mild spicy malt flavors. Honey tangerine. Toasted oats. Smooth. Not too sweet. Bit thin and watery. Having again on draft at Good Dog in Oct 2013. Dark wheat beer. Not awful, but not that much above awful.

Pale orange. Lemon and wheat malts. Sticky palate. Okay, hard to make an Oktoberfest in a can

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Gold, clear, no head. Light aroma but musty. Mild carbonation. This seems much more like a lager than an oktoberfest. Don’t recommend.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from McGrupp612. Aroma has notes of cereal malts, and caramel. Medium golden amber hue with an average off-white head that left no las and fully diminished. Flavor is lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is light bodied and average carbonation. Overall an unremarkable Oktoberfest.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour a clear copper / bronze with an off-white head. Aroma and Taste of light toasted malt, some light fruity and grass notes and some hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. Finish is lightly toasted malt, some yeast with a slightly fruity and hoppy ending, could use a bit more malt. Overall not the best but an ok drinkable brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Champs. Thick white head that retains. Aroma is faint hay. Flavor is bitter hay and straw. Very drinkable but surprisingly dry for an Oktoberfest. Could definitely use more caramel maltiness IMO.
