3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, with many thanks to joss!) Hazy orange-amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty, sweet toast-malty , nutty aroma with a touch of honey. Initially sweet maty, toasty and nutty taste with light fruity shades, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation; dry toast-malty, moderately bitter and herbal finish with a pleasant nutty, spicy aftertaste. Nice one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on 10/20/06. Pours a clear amber/gold with a huge rocky head leaving excellent lace. Grain and caramel malt aroma. Sweet toffee dominates the flavor, but some light bittering hops bring the sweetness into balance. Medium body without stickiness, rather surprising considering the fact that it is predominantly sweet. A fine example of the style.

Medium shiny creamy white head; brown hazy body with carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with notes of straw and grass. Strong, earthy malt and straw taste with toffeeish notes and a dry, hoppy background. Powerful, yet light and drinkable. Good! (0.5l on tap.)

Pours a beautiful copper color w/ a medium semi creamy froth leaving a dusty layer on top. Aroma is balanced malt and hop. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are fruity w/ a nice malty backbone. Just enough hops to sustain a perfect balance. No annoying grassy hay aromas or flavors. Smooth w/ a crisp finish. Highly recommended.

Pours oktoberfest orange with a billowing beige head. Malty carmalish aroma as with most oktoberfest beers. This is one of the best Oktoberfests I have tried. Better balanced than most. Has a spicy flavor and sweet roasted malty tone. Smooth dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a orange tinted amber from the bottle with a then lacing white head. I didn’t notice any aroma whatsoever, which was disappointing. Initial flavor was pleasing though, slightly roasted malt flavor, carmel and apple flavors. Finish is clean but citrus. Great seasonal beer. If it had any semblence of an aroma it would be a home run.
