3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Platte City Olive or Twist. Pours clear copper with a well-fed fizzy white head. Aroma is lightly-roasted nuts, fresh earth, and caramel. Flavor is exactly as you’d expect from an Oktoberfest, lightly sweet, highlighting caramel/crystal malts and just a touch of hops. The only thing holding this beer back is a slightly odd finish, with a bit too much metallic zing. Otherwise, quite nice!

12 oz bottle from Brothers - Pours a lightish brown/red color with a nice white head. Smells a bit sweet with a strong malty aroma. Not a lot of hops coming through, but the malty flavor is quite good. A bit sweet. Very smooth beer. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Ike’s in the Minneapolis Airport. Orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are a mix of grainy malt, and a bit of fatter pale malt. Flavour profile begins malty sweet with a touch of caramel before finishing crispy and dry.Light bodied for the style. Fairly drinkable stuff, but lacking in intensity

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Roasty and nutty flavors. You can taste the alcohol unlike most other Oktoberfests. Lingering aftertaste. Not awful but definitely not my favorite of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice and smooth taste with roasty, nutty malt flavors. Hints of spice and perhaps a bit of citrus zest along with some hops in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber-orange with a thin layer of head that quickly dissipates into a ring with nice thick edges. Aroma is a os some carmel malts, a bit sweet, with a little bit of zest and spice. Flavor is malty sweet with some bitterness on the end. A long finish of carmel malts and a little hops that seems to linger.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark golden color, reasonable wispy sized head. Did not last long. Smell is bubblegum sweetness, maybe some cotton candy slight bready notes. In the taste, well there isn’t a whole lot. Kind of dim. Very surprising that it has that much alcohol flavor. All I can really taste is pale malt. Poor quality. I can see drinking a lot of this if you were out to get ripped, but other than that I don’t see any point to this beer existing.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nice reddish brown appearance. Hints of nuttiness but I really didn’t enjoy the aftertaste, left a film in my mouth.
