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.

Gachupines (1075) - USA - OCT 22, 2014
Dark amber with a light wrote head. Aroma is vaguely nutty with a bit of malt. Strong, malt forward flavor with a touch of nuttiness. Full body, vaguely sweet with a funky bitter finish. Wife: 3.5

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Keg at CP&K. It pours hazy amber with a small yellowish-white head. The nose is lemon poppy seed caked, orange, bread, caramel and faint Irn Bru. The taste is orange sponge cake, caramel, wood, light varnish and zesty citrus with a dry, somewhat citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. I found it rather flavoursome and well balanced. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber with a red tint and a minimal beige head. Aroma is toasted malt, roasted malt, hay, bread, light estery pear, phenolic, smoke. Taste is near medium sweet, medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is average. Finishes toasted malty and hoppy. I kinda liked this one.

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 (4537) - 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.
