2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle- Pours an amber color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Fairly mild aroma of malt, grain with bit of caramel sweetness and trace of fruit. Taste of malt and grain with a mild caramel sweetness and fruit in the background. Mild bitterness with a fairly clean finish and a lingering stickiness. Medium body and smooth. Seems just a bit bland. Decent drinker that goes down easy. Good for a couple. Needs just a bit more character.

Clear deep orange hue, good creamy head that lasts. Moderately sweet aroma of malt and bread/yeast. Taste of orange citrus and malt, very sweet, with touch of bitter and sourness. Medium body, moderate metallic finish, low carbonation. Very different and refreshing. Tastes like its dar orange appearance, almost saison-ish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From BA: where it was classed as an O’fest style Beer. Brown 0.5 litre bottle, BBD is smudged so not sure if the beer was in date or not when drank in Jan 2009..
Poured into a pint pot (glass).
Dull, deep old gold colour, typical of an O’fest bier. Good white foaming head sat on top.
Cut grass is the first aroma followed by bad Body Odour, then I wanted to smell hops, yeast and malts. Sadly I didn’t although a none discript beery aroma did appear.
This beer (according to the label) won some accolade at the Beer world Cup in San Diego 2008. whoever voted for it has different taste buds to me.
The richness I remember from O’fest biers and the depth of flavours were not present in this version. A weak attempt of the style in my opinion. Dry and bland throughout.

Bottle. Rating #202. Clear, dark golden pour with an off-white head. Light sweet malt aroma, a bit of caramel. Flavor is similar, but I get a bit of sweet corn. Kinda off. (2344)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Clear, dark orange appearance with a big white head. Grainy, husky, light corn crib, light cobweb, hay aroma. Fuck this reminds me of my grandparent’s, farm five clicks away. Crisp grainy, fairly fruity, a bit dry, grainy flavor. Pretty easy to drink but there’s a bit of awkwardness between the grainy, straw elements and the fruit elements. Tried again in the bottle in Germany. A bit better this time around but nothing special.

a very good looking beer, light gold, and a thick white head. sadly very light and mild flavors and aromas, malt with lager yeast. no flaws, but it does not have much fto offer. it cant stand up to the best central European Viennas.
