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.

Tap at the brewpub in Lake Mills, WI. Clear orange pour with minimal head. Caramel and earthy nose. Medium bodied, carbonated. Taste is caramel, a short-lived sharp hop bite, and bread.

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.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Huge frothy head. On the milder side of O-Fests, with more malt than hops, so consider this a session Octoberfest. Very dry in the finish, perhaps too much so. Odd metallic taste that wears on me. I think I prefer the German Octo offerings.

9/05/2009: Gemuetlichkeit Oktoberfest... Aroma: Sweet breadcrust and faint caramel. Appearance: Sandy blonde to tan in color; thin off-white head. Flavor: Lightly toasted bread and malts. Palate: Average. Overall: This is a fairly typical Oktoberfest-style beer that is lacking any real character; nothing special.
Draught at Tyranena Brewing Company in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. Rating #72 for this beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’m afraid I’m just not a fan of Oktoberfests so far. They are way too unbalanced, with malts dominating. There is no hop presence in my opinion, just a stickly sweetness that leaves a scratchiness in the back of my throat. It’s got nice amber color and a decent bready aroma, but the metallic scent and taste that I sometimes notice in certain beers is quite apparent in this one. Tyranena makes much better beers than this offering.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully diminished white head. Vague malt aroma. Flavour is flat malty with a light cardboard note and mild spice accent. Ends flat and medium dry. Classic US misinterpretation of a German Oktoberfest
