On tap pouts he park nice Amber with gold highlights. Minimal head, most of wet grains. Philly soft pretzel. Btw the way u kno it’s a philly pretzel b/c of urine content. That’s just an fyi and only soft pretzel that matters to this bro. Light to medium body. Well done. Still can taste the salt. Yum.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy dark copper with a thin white foamy cap. Nice nose of toasted biscuit and caramelized bread, with a very subtle sausage note underneath. Smooth and biscuity flavor with a big spritzy carbonation and a little toast and semisweet malty undertone. A wee bit generic and bone dry on the finish.

I was expecting more from this after the other excellent beers. It’s very hazy. Bit of nuttiness. Corn in the back of the aroma.

22 ounce bottle thanks to James. Big pillowy carbonated pour. Too much! Taste is spicy hop. Malt. Much more nuanced than other Oktoberfests that just pour on the caramel. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle. Clear amber with a lasting off-white head.
Toffee-heavy cara malt, butter and peanut brittle aroma. Medium body, rich and creamy with fine carbonation. Green-herbal-pine hop aroma. Light off-notes of plastic. Velvety and lush in the mouth. Burnt grain astringency lingering forever in a finish that tastes like pancake batter left on the burner too long... kettle caramelization taken to the extreme. Without this loud roughness this seems like it would be something enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Zach’s house. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Caramel, toasted malt, biscuit in the nose and lots of herbal notes. A little spicy flavor with lots of dough and light citrus. Fizzy carbonation. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange, with a big, frothy, beige head. Caramel, oranges, coriander, light floral hops, and sourdough. Bready sweetness, with a light bitterness. Light body, chalky, a little sharp, and astringent. Overall, this is a nice, flavorful, and dangerously drinkable beer. Mellow, balanced, and well done.

Draft at Westbrook. Burnt orange pour with a frothy white head. Toasted bready aroma, light caramel, toast, floral and grassy hop aroma. Flavor is similar, with a sort of toffee flavor and much more of a pronounced Noble hop character. Clean easy drinking with a nice bitterness. Good stuff.
