3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber pour with a thin white head that has great retention and leaves great lacing. Aroma is full of sweet and nutty cereal malt, some caramel, lots of crusty bread and spicy, planty and floral hops. Flavor is bready, toasty and cereal malt up front, followed by some nutty notes, then spicy and floral hops. Medium body, slightly chewy to creamy feel, medium carbonation. Pretty good stuff, nothing crazy, but above average for the style I’d say.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At the SLC brewpub. Pours a warm orange brown color with a firm, creamy white head. The nose is full of clean toasty malts with a bit of subtle nutty character. The taste starts with lots of crisp, smokey malts, biscuit tones and a good citrusy hop twang. Vanilla, orange peel and a spices lingering towards the finish. The bitter hops meld with a slight malt smokiness into the after taste. Very well balanced and highly drinkable with an ABV of 5.5%. This is a great example of what Oktoberfest biers are all about.
