3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very malty Oktoberfest beer and very flavorful. Not much in terms of hoppiness in this brew, since the nutty caramel character of this brew overshadows everything else here. I like this brew, but make sure you’re a malt fan if you try it.

Great Oktoberfish beer. Copperish brown color. A little malt. Mostly grainy and alchohol is low. Has a unique hop signature.

500ml bottle from LCBO. 5.8% alc/vol Pours a clear deep golden colour with 1/2 finger of white head that reduces to a cap. Aromas of roasted matls, caramel, toffee, and a whiff of honey with some grainy notes. Taste matches the aroma. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep amber color, very clear, with big offwhite head that faded somewhat quickly. Nose of faint toasty malts, yeast, and copper. Flavor follows suit, with a nice crisp, coppery finish. A bit too carbonated for my tastes-- almost harsh on the tongue. Medium bodied and quite enjoyable. I could definitely pound back big mugs of this stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brilliant clear orange, with a large white head that lasts, lacing nicely. Aroma is all malt - some toast, lots of raw smelling grain, and a tiny bit of sweetness. Flavor is of sweet and raw graininess, maybe a bit of hoppiness in the finish. On the medium side of thin for the body, medium amount of carbonation. Overall it is ok, but seems to be missing something to me.

Pours clear deep amberish golden with a big frothy bubbly offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and floral with sweet dark bread, caramel, toffee, banana bread, hay, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and slightly floral. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with sweet bread, caramel, cookie dough, hay, dried flowers, minerals and lemon peal. Highly balanced pleasant maltdriven lager. Full flavoured yet highly quaffable.
