Bottle to shaker glass. Pours light amber, two finger quick head, no lacing but good retention. Malty nose. Nicely balanced taste. Light bodied, light small bubble carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes semi-sweet with notes of toasted malts, bread, earthy herbs. Very good example of the style.

Pours a clear brown/red with a scoche of head. Nose is german lager yeast, sweet nutty malt. Taste matches nose, german yeast character, nutty, a bit of sweetness. Very clean and crisp, easy to drink a lot of. About as good as a german oktoberfest gets. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nealblind (965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2014
dark red orange brown pour. Not much aroma- caramel, slight citrus. Tastes caramely slightly roast, grape, clean minerality. Light enough palate to drink a few for such a moderately dark brew.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, pale gold. Thin, bubbly, white head. Sweet toffee malt. Some green hop. Light spice. Taste is light sweet. Some green, vegetal bitterness. Smooth, crisp palate. Quite a bit of body. Finishes light bitter, with the sweetness balancing nicely.
