2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first thought was "Oooh...this is pretty." Looked like iced tea and had a very weak aroma. For mouthfeel, again ice tea. I was hopeful when it was sour on the tip of my tongue, but overall it was bland.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear orangey bronze color with tin 1/4 inch head that quickly disappears. The very thin ring that’s left behind leaves only minimal lacing.
Smell; nice bread dough and caramel maltiness with a mild herbal almost spicy aroma. Nice, but not as good as I was expecting.
Taste; pretty much follows it’s aroma. It has a solid caramel malt presence, and a little bit of the spiciness makes an appearance. There’s also a slight hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation. This is not the best O-fest by any means, but it’s still a decent stab at the style.

A pretty average okt-fest. Pours a muted red. Kind of tastes a bit oily ,but feels like water?

12 oz bottle, best before date Dec 12. As it is Jan 4th, this is past it’s date, but not by much. Pours a orange color with decent off white head. No lacing. Nose is of fresh bread, a tad yeasty. Flavor is malty, with a bit of the yeast shown in the nose. Some caramel sweetness. Slightly sticky finish, with a wisp of bitter left behind. A pretty decent lager, but a fest it is not. Nice for a session or while watching a game.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has some definite breadiness to it.
The pour is a honey color with a small white head. Has a malty, slightly sour taste to it. Nothing special
