3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BBD 5/16. Pours a clear amber that is rather brown. Outstanding head volume and retention, normal lacing.
Light, but typical, Oktoberfest nose. Light biscuit, a touch of caramel and light grassy hops.
Heavy light body that has a smooth texture with a few creamy aspects. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a reasonable prickly finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with light biscuit that flows into caramel that hints at sweetness. As the middle approaches, a light nuttiness is noted. The middle brings a subtle hop flavor and bitterness, mostly herbal. The finish is somewhat crisp and has a very slight mineral quality as the hop, caramel and nutty grains slowly fade.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Two Brothers Tavern, this was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a slight transparent amber to orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head. Extremely minimal lacing, barely there.
The smell starts off with some roasty nuts, sweet glossy caramel tones and delicate toffee all blend nicely.
The taste was mainly sweet with a sticky sweet caramel aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a stickiness leaning to cloying, but gently allows some carbonation to ride into the balance of it all.
Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest, probably could have again.

Bottle pour at Palo Alto Networks in Santa Clara, CA. Nose is malts, honey, brown sugar. Taste is creamy / malty with a nice balanced hop on the finish. A little too sweet malts for me but also Your Standard Operation German Beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty clean aroma with mild hints of skunk from being in a green bottle. Has additional almost floral fairly pasture based pleasant aromas, cooking sugar aroma. Clear, copper/bronze color, light head, no lacing. Toasty, grainy, munich/pilsner type flavors, sweetish yet balanced. Unctuous palate, perfection. Goes down easy and dry begging for another sip. Truly a good brew but the green bottle costs a good bit in quality. It is super simple and straightforward which isn’t a put-down. Wonderful brew.
