Malty, but not too sweet, with a nice hop flavor. The conditioning time of 8 weeks guarantees the exceptional balance, smoothness and full body, typical of this beer style.

Bomber. Pours clear copper with a thick and lacy pale orange head. Aroma of biscuit, brown sugar and malt; you know the stuff inside malted milk balls? That’s it. Medium body and carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of bread, caramel, filberts. Fairly crisp and just vaguely hoppy finish. I can see why it wouldn’t be too hard to sit around in lederhosen, and watch barmaids showing a ton of cleavage while you pound a bunch of this beer. Damn. I finished the bomber while writing this. I guess I need to learn to type faster.

@GCBF-on tap-pours a thin white head and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-fruit. Taste is medium malt-caramel, fruit, secondary hops bite. OK carbonation. Liked less as it went along.

Bomber courtesy of Pitonka 5000. Pours copper with almost no carbonation and some thin white bubbles. Smells of caramel, some pepper, some earthiness, hints of pepper. Tastes sweet and malty with some toffee and caramel dominating. Decent.

Bottle. Amber color with a caramel-like malty aroma. Flavor is malty but not too heavy or lingering. A little sweet and less hoppy. This is a fantastic Oktoberfestbier.

22 oz Bottle - Sweet, caramelly biscuit malt body - slight toffee presence with a floral light hop finish with a muted citrus essence - almost CreamSickle citrusy-smooth. Medium bodied, smooth, enjoyable, extremely well balanced drink. I thought this was a fantastic drink- well done.

Bottle. Darker amber nearing brown with minimal head. Malty, slightly sweet with a nice light hopy balance. Aroma was malty and sugary. Decent palate is rich.

ruby brown quick falling head. light in body for the style, somewhat tinny. hard to finish

This was a good one. This is not generally a favorite style of mine, but this was a fantastic brew. Nice sweet caramel malt aroma. Poured amber with a small white head. The malt flavor was nice and sweet, but not overly sweet like alot of Fest beers. It was pretty smooth and finished very crisp. I will look for this again during next season.

Bottle: Deep translucent amber, moderate foamy off-white head, light carbonation, fairly nice lacing.   Musty cereal aroma, slight wet cardboard, a little barnish.   Very cereal/oat oriented on the tongue.   Soft caramel or vienna malts perhaps, but unfortunately a little metallic on the backside.   Semi-sweet malt profile, but the finish is a bit rough.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering metallic taste, along with a soft semi-sweet grainy astringency.   For a local Oktoberfest, I still prefer Baron the most!
