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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold/amber color with a 1/2" thick head that settles to a film rather quickly, not much lacing. Aroma is kind of watery, a little bit of malt comes through, but not much. Taste is a little sweet, medium-light body. Drinkable, but I’ve had better Oktoberfests.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a clear copper color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about forty seconds leaving some light stringy lacing sliding into the glass.
The smell started off with a rich nutty to caramel presence leading into some toasty to bready hops.
The taste was moderately sweet with earthy undertones of nutty and caramel malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a very good sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed fairly smooth but I’m guessing this was last Autumn’s batch, so that’s no hit on Stoudt’s just the aging of the beer until this time.
Overall, an Oktoberfest in May, well cheers to that being that it held up even further than expected. I’d look forward to having this hopefully this Autumn with some pretzels and a football game.

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.
