3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. twist off bottle from Vintage Estate in Ohio,
pours a clear dark copper and red with an off-white head, head collapses to a ring and cover, there are some effervescent bubbles making their way to the top, beer left some lacing on the sides of the glass,
toasted malt and bread like aromas and not much sweetness on the nose, appears to be a dry Octoberfest, has a faint earthy aroma in the background,
nice malt flavors, toasted malt and bread, has some malt sweetness, finish is mostly dry with a nice bitterness,
medium mouth feel, I do not know why this beer has a low rating, this was ok.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Transfering from notes. Bottle. Amber pour with a nice big off white head. Aroma is of sweet malt and light hops. Flavor is pretty balanced with sweetness and bitterness. But something about it didnt sit right with me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, amber body with a small, white, bubbly head.
Smell: Caramel malts with a touch of toasted grain and fruit and several pats of butter. Oh, who am I kidding, you get an entire stick of the stuff.
Taste: Toasty caramel maltiness with a medium sweetness. Diacetyl. Slight fruitiness in the form of Red Delicious apples. More diacetyl. Light spicy hops and bitterness. Like a cruel phantom that butter taste comes and goes but you can never ever quite be rid of it. Grainy, caramel-laden, butter churn finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Whew. This one certainly wasn’t shy about the diacetyl which, if you can deal with, then you may be able to choke it down. Otherwise, it calls for a drain pour and a tall glass of water to rinse your mouth out.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a brown 12oz bottle - Pours a clear light reddish/pale color with almost no head and well below average carbonation. Smells of floral hops and very light sweet malts. First sip is sweet and perfumy like with a very light malt backbone. Very light bodied, lightly hopped. Somewhat under carbonated. Not worthy of consumption.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a copper with a reddish hue and a thin head. Aromas are apple juice and malt, but pretty blah. Flavor is sweet and pretty blah.

Maybe I had a rancid batch,but this stuff was not that impressive. Tasted kind of aged,and not very enjoyable on the tongue.
