2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
What the hell is this? This is nothing like a fest beer, or anything oktoberfest at all. Did they invent this? It’s just a roasty malty amber. I don’t think this has anything to do with late September festivals. It’s sort of like if you’re expecting to sip milk and you drink orange juice, I thought it was bad only because it was nothing like an oktoberfest. Not a bad beer itself but what the heck?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget @ Stockholm. Pours reddish amber with a small head. Sweet caramel aroma, a bit fruity with some bitter hints. Taste is quite light, slightly bitter. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel, short aftertaste. OK beer and quite sessionable - but not spectacular.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Strange spice flavor. Lightly sweet. Not remarkable. Rather watery. Too much nutmeg/clove/holiday spice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium amber with lasting ring. Aroma is spiced caramel malts with some grassy hops in the background. Taste is spices, malt, slightly floral with mild hop bitterness. Palate is medium-high carbonation giving it a little kick. Aftertaste is a little grainy. Some sips are "meh", some are decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Clear, amber copper with an off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of caramel, toffee, dried apricots, orange and floral hops.
Taste of floral hops, musty dried leaves, caramel, toffee and light fruit. The malt and hops aren't working together well. The bitter floral and musty hops are not sufficiently balanced by the malt sweetness.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not exactly an amber ale, but that’s OK. Aroma of bready malt. Light amber color. Taste is sweet malt, grain with a hop bitterness very much in the background. It’s pleasant, but nothing special.
