Scent is bready with touch of spice. Pours clear amber with lasting white head. Starts spicy and finishes sweet. Carbonation is lighter than expected. Draft - Trappeze Pub - Athens, GA

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22 ounce bottle - $6.48 at Sherlock’s in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, amber-orange body with a finger and finger only of white foam.

Smell: Sweet accented bready, softly toasted malts with a slender waft of fruit and nuts. Very meager hop note, but I’m getting to this a bit later than I probably should. I was unfair and I apologize for my poor behavior.

Taste: Bready maltiness, lightly toasty, blended with a restrained toffee-like sweetness, a swell of fruitiness, toasted cashew, and subtle spiciness from the lightly bitter Perle hops. The sweet maltiness and almost berryish fruitiness persists after the bitter subsides on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just on the underside of medium carbonation.

Overall: Not perfect, but smooth, drinkable, served alongside some grilled cheddarwurst from local Heywood’s Provision.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweet caramellish aroma with some nice flowery hops. Medium body, caramel and slightly ashy, a sophisticated flowery touch. Quite some bittering hops. 250113

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Draft. Poured amber with a medium-sized off-white, dense head. Aroma and flavor were moderately malty, a hint of fruit, smoke, and rye spice (I know, that shouldn’t make sense). Mildly bitter -- ah ha! that’s the spicy note, the German hops. Medium weight. Very drinkable, substantial flavor for an oktoberfest.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Bomber bottle on Sept 17, 2013: Pours hazy orange/copper with a smallish off-white head. Nice lacing, a good looking brew. Aroma was caramel malts a bit of earthy nuttiness. Crisp carbonation and medium body. Flavors were somewhat spicy and earthy with a malt backbone. Solid brew, but not earth-shattering

chinchill (1713) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2013
22 oz bottle with a bottled on date of 18 Sept. 2012 poured into a Sam Adams lager glass at about 42F. Pours a medium orange-amber color with a bubbly tan head that has moderate retention and leave spotty lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles.Smells pleasantly malty with spicy hop tones and hints of citrus fruit and baked bread. The flavor largely follows, The initial sweet malt flavor is soon followed by bitter earthy and spicy noble hops that eventually dominate the malts, then leave a mildly bitter and slightly nutty aftertaste. Medium-bodied with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish. O – A decent Oktoberfest beer, although a bit more hoppy and less refined and drinkable than usual or ideal for this style.

25-JAN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting, @Yespr. Almost clear with very low head. Malty, very hoppy with fruits and spice. Finish is very bitter. Strange spicy (yeasty?) brew. Not bad, just strange.
