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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another nice beer from Squatters. Available during the 20th anniversary celebrations in 500 ml bottles for in house and big old growler-type bottles for take out. Pours a deep copper color with a massive off-white head. The aroma is sweet caramel, loads of rich fruity and sweet malt notes. The flavor is a very drinkable and fresh mix of sweet caramel, rich malts, light hops and a ton of flavors. A nice full mouthfeel. Extraordinarily drinkable. A great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small handle accented swing top growler courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear copper with some gold edges and thin white head. The aroma is sweet with malts and a bit of caramel, dates, prunes and yeasty spice. The flavor is much the same with a mix of caramel, dates, plums, apricots and spice. Pretty sweet overall and picking up the standard notes for the style that I can’t always discern.

( 18oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours clear amber with nice bubbles and great lacing. Nose is faint but sweet, taste is butterscotch, light toasted grains, with a sweet buttery/oily finish. Quite good for a style I typically dislike.
