2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a tulip glass. A copper color with a finger of white head that shortly broken down with some good lacing.
Smells of honeysuckle, grapefruit and mandarin.
It tastes like lemon, hops and a hint of soap. I have tried three different bottles in three different glasses and they all taste like this. Maybe it is the style, but the soap taste is a bit off-putting.
Moderate carbonation and medium bodied.
I cannot get over the taste.... but it smells so good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, slightly toasty nose with notes of dried apricots, orange, toffee, nuts and rye bread. Malty taste with toffee, dried apricots, caramel, candy sugar, orange, rye bread and a balanced spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced with a chewy malt character. Quite nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I get a heavy grainy aroma followed by a sweet malt in this hazy deep orange brew with almost no head. This brew has that german aroma maybe caused by the yeast. Very earthy amd sweet almost like honey sweet in this medium bodied brew. For an october fest not too bad. Worth a try.

MIld honey nose, some dried leaves. Cloudy amber, thin head. Honey on the front end, dried leaves on the back. Medium body, easily sessionable. Not a lot of oompf, but that probably wasn’t the intent.

This is a decent Octoberfest. Little bitter on the back of your mouth. My wife likes this one better than me she gets a couple 6 packs every October.
