3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a bit lighter hued than most oktoberfests I’ve seen, this being a light and clear amber with no carbonation present in the body. The head is thin and tan with some lacing as it slowly dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma is really lacking, light malt sweetness and light hop presence, but rather bland.
Taste: This is rather unremarkable, lightly sweet malts, light toasted flavors, and light floral hops on the finish. It’s not bad, but it’s forgettable.
Palate: Medium bodied with light amounts of lightly sharp carbonation.
Overall: Mediocre at best, this is good but nothing that stands out. I’ll pass next year.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12 oz. bottle: a cream-colored head arises from clear darkish-copper liquid. Nice malty toasty aroma with just a hint of hops. Tastes toasty with some caramel notes. Smooth and clean with just enough bitterness on the backside. This has a little more of everything than most Octoberfests (with the exception of hops), but the lasting aroma is the highlight. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-21-12-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a copper-orange colored beer with a nice one finger white head. The head faded rather fast to level a lighter amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was heaviest of a toasted malt with hints of some caramel and lightly earthy and herbal hop aroma. Overall it was rather light, but nice none the less.
Taste – The flavor begins of roasted malt with a sweet caramel taste. The caramel fades slightly toward the middle of the taste as some hop flavors of a more earthy nature greet the tongue. Toward the end the caramel comes back a bit and with an added arrival of a increase in the roasted flavors, to produce a lightly hopped and roasted smooth finish.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the smoother side with an average body creaminess and a average carbonation level. Good and drinkable for the style
Overall –Overall a very easy drinking brew with a nice flavor blend. Give it a go if you have a chance.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a deep rich golden body with visible carbonation and good clarity. A two finger thick and foamy white head sits on top. It slowly fades to a thin layer that hangs on well and some slick lacing. The aroma is light and has a delicate light grain note with a slight hint of spicy hops. It has a crisp pale biscuity malt with some light roasted notes as well. There is a mild sweetness from the malt and a nice equal balance of bitterness and leafy/grassy/spicy hop flavor notes. It finishes crisply with a slight balance towards the bitter hop side. The palate has a medium body with plenty of active carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
@ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Nearly clear medium amber color, over-anzious head, globs of lace. Taste is over-sweet malt that adds light spice and fizz in the palate before moving to light bitters in the finish. On the low end as an Oktoberfest.
