12oz bottle, this octoberfest styled lager is a darker amber color with large frothy off white head. aroma is of malt and kind of like sweetbreads. didnt read bottle description at first and there was a dark deep core taste i couldnt put my finger on and then figured out is was aged in french oak barrels. there is a mild spiciness to this beer. there is also a buttery slick fell to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy dark orange/amber with about a 1/4 inch off-white head that went away quickly. There’s pretty much no lacing at all left on the glass. Aroma is caramel and bready malt, nuts, oak and a bit of tart apples. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma. It’s a mostly malty brew, with the caramel and bready malt flavors being the strongest, and with some oak, tart apple, nutty and earthy flavors noticable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit syrupy with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s smooth and enjoyable. I think it’s a decent enough brew, but it’s not something I would buy very often.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy brownish red. Aroma of grain and malt. Malt forward with nutty overtones followed by maple syrup. Then the finish is crisp while the bottom drops out and bitterness is left.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at home. Nose is oddly sweet, metallic, and synthetic. Malty? Flavors are similarly strange. I get a big sweet chemical taste. Light grassy hops. I don’t know, maybe a bad bottle?

Bottle thanks to spudclampdawg. pours medium hazy and amber. Head fades to a typical ring. Nose is sweet rich toasty breads, some light caramels, and a touch of woody tannins. Flavor is again, toasty sweet oak, bread, caramels, sweet malts, rich caramel toffee, Medijm full body. Tasty and flavorful. Medium to moderately full sweetness.

Clear, amber pour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is a little earthy, but it has some sugary candy notes. It has a medium body with slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with some alcohol in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Plano Oktoberfest. Pours dark amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweer malty aroma. Nice flavor is dry malty with a light sweetness and rich flavor and feel from the wood aging. Pretty solid, strong Oktoberfest.
