3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
10.16.04 Tap @ Princeton. The standard glowing copper pour looks exceptional as a beam of sunlight streaks from the ceiling, illuminating the pull. Hardly any head. Bread crust nose with a lagerly spine. This beer was served quite cold and I found that refreshing, given the style. Nice spice to the hop character come in a bit earlier than usual, almost puckering the tongue in shock like a salty chip. Not a bad effort from this, my favorite bp. Surprisingly, this doesn’t have the usual Triumph signature flavor so recognizable in most of their beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Princeton. Pours copper with an off white head, spotty lacing. Caramel and bread like aroma. Flavor of caramel, toasted malt, and a hint of fruit. The hops do a nice job of balancing this beer, and does not have the overdone spicy hop finish other Octoberfest have. Sort of reminds me of Paulaner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
New Hope. Clear golden-amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Sweet caramel nose with notes of grapes, toast, and buttery nuts. Medium sweet malty flavor with light fruity aspects, emerging Noble hop signatures, and low bitterness. Good, quaffable Oktoberfest.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in New Hope. Not a bad beer by any standards but I think most brewers try to copy somebody else’s Oktoberfests because this tastes like everyone elses Oktoberfest. Decent aroma and body but a little odd mouthfeel. Pretty smooth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with heavy foam. Aroma is typical Marzen with plenty of maltiness. Taste is pretty good for an Oktoberfest, but not exceptional.
