3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Has date printed on bottom rim, but it’s cut off.
Poured into pint glass, pours a reddish copper color. A lot of black "flecktacles" floating around. A little cloudy. Head is about two fingers khaki colored. Head is thick and firm. Not very good longevity, or retention. Very light lacing. Looks to be about right for the style.
Aroma is malt heavy. Light caramel and vanilla. Bread crust, wet leaves.
Taste is caramel, vanilla, sweet. Tobacco, bread crust. A little bit of wet leaves.
Mouthfeel is medium, a little watery. There’s an odd sort of abrupt watery tannic finish.
Overall, it’s decent. It tapers off a bit as it warms. It’s your average Oktoberfest, nothing phenomenal. I am neutral on recommending it, or whether I’d buy it again.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 oz can poured into wide mouth pickle barrel glass: Clear dark amber with minimal ashen tan suds. Aromas of cereal and toffee, biscuit. Sweet and bready flavor, just the faintest sour-brown notes, bread crust, toasty bitterness. Medium body with slight slickness, it finishes with overall caramel flavor. Like autumn in glass.

clear and bright golden colour under a solid and long lasting white foam; some oily grassy hops hit the nose; the oily feeling persists on the tongue in top of a medium malt backbone, sweet and with no bitterness to mention; grassy finish

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can purchased as a single at Cork and Barrel 23rd Street in Lawrence, Kansas. The pour is a golden ruby copper with a ½ inch off white head that falls fast. The aroma is grain, slightly sweet malt, along with grassy earthy hop. The taste is the grass up front, a bit dirty with evident yeast and the grain sweet malt in the finish. The palate is medium bodied, chewy mouthfeel and a bit of mineral in the finish. Decent take on the style.
