2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
One-third pint, gravicask at USA Cask Ale Bar, GBBF’11. Amber-dark brown to look at, dotted spots at the glass. Rather inviting smell of dark sweet malts. Dried fruits mixed with sweet caramel in flavour, notes of butter. Malty endnotes. OK, if not a bit unusual for an Octoberfest bier (London, 04.08.2011).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangish/amber pour. Small head. Toffee, caramel, bread and some grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is malty and a tad sweet and the hops offset the sweetness nicely. Pretty ok for the style.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Drank this baby at about 2 AM on Friday, September 1st. Steady 60 mph wind and rain pounding the front of the beach house. Sliding glass door is bulging, but not breaking... and I’m drinking... a clear copper lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Lots of sticky, melted caramel in the aroma. Caramely, malty-sweet flavor. Medium-bodied and milky with modest carbonation. Malty, gummy finish. Yum! Thanks kenb!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color wtih a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is sweet fruit with raisin and light hops. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet roasted malt with caramel and a spicy finish. A good amber ale from Widmer.

Bottle @ home picked up @ Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a dark rust orange appearance with an off white head. Caramel, toasted malty, slightly floral, herbal hoppy aroma. A little chewy malty, light bubblegum, a bit zesty yeasty, caramel flavor. Pretty decent beer.
