3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Clear amber pour with a small, bubbly head. Not much smell - some malt, but that’s about it. Taste is smooth and malty, but not over the top. It’s pleasant with a little lactose in the background. It feels like a lot of Tyranena beers -- smooth and creamy with just enough carbonation. Decent, but pretty forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as a light note of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of metal and alcohol, leading to a bitter and metallic finish. Too simple. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, rich golden amber color with a nice white head that has nice lacing and decent retention. Aroma is malty and sweet. Lots of caramel malt in this bad boy. Flavor is very smooth malt forward with notes of caramel and grain. There is a very nice balance in this beer and it makes me want a huge 1 liter mug of it! Very well done.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottled on 18AUG08 from <i>goryshkewych</i>. Thanks George; Clear orange amber with not even enough light beige head to cover the surface and faded to a very thin crescent-shaped film within seconds. Aroma of caramel malts and toasted grain up front. Light dry cereal grain and lightly earthy hops are in the background. The flavor seemed a bit less grainy and the earthy hops kept the overall flavor just lightly sweet. Bitterness peaked around a 2 in the semi dry finish. Carbonation is low with a medium body. Decent for an Oktoberfest.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours a clear amber color with a large white head. Grain and distinct caramel in the aroma. Taste is malty, but with a rather light mouthfeel. Sweet caramel in the taste, but not a whole lot of complexity to it. I also get a mineral/metallic character in here that really comes out in the finish. Slightly disappointing after trying other quality Tyranena products.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draught at the Malt House: Poured a clear dark amber colour with a huge white head. Aroma was slightly malty, with barely noticeable caramel notes. Taste was very very metallicy, not sure if it was a bad keg or what. Soft biscuity character, otherwise metallic taste was a big turn off.
