1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Total Wine Boca Raton. Pours brown with a thin white head. not lot on the nose. tastes of copper and funk but not in a good way. If someone said they washed their ball sack in this beer I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s just not a pleasant experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light grass and hop spice, mild lemon citrus, pleasant caramel/bread malt nose, hint of pump at the back. Brilliant light amber-copper body with a frothy off-white head. Crisp malty medium body with light hop prickle and a little veggie, has workable caramel malt and a hint at the darker side of Maillard. Sweet but not too much, with low bitterness, just enough to keep you coming back for more.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
while it hits a little of the medium toastiness and mild caramel and buttery leatherness of a okt, its kinda watery, thin and has a odd bit of bitter bite or snap at the end. leaves a bit of yogurt like twang on the palette. not a fan.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light copper pour into a SS lager glass.Frothy 1/2 inch head with frothy light lacing.
Aroma: Sweet bready doughy pastry cereal grain.Carmel/toffee,almonds,light toast. Some mineral. Some fruit/orange. Better aroma than most octoberfests Ive had.
Taste is similar with some mild orange fruit citrus tones,mineral,pretty full bodied and creamy.Strong toffee tones.Good eartthy/pepper bittering balancing the mild carmel sweetness. Good finish kind of citrus/piney type bittering. I like this one a little more than alot of octoberfests and not really big on this style either.
