harrisoni (17685) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Red/russet with beige head. Some good caramel, barley sugar aromas which carry on into the body of this beer. Quite drinkable. Bit too sweet but good spice/dry hop finish. Hop nose is quite subtle

freekyp (2042) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2016 Orangy amber with a sight white head, this brew has a pleasing bready/grain aroma. Malty throughout, but not heavy, its 5.8% alchohol content is well masked in the fine balance. Hop character is present but subdued.
Earlier Rating: 3/22/2003 Total Score: 3
Thick rocky white head, deep copper color. High maltiness, with hops only becoming prevalent mid bottle. Nice malty clean finish with some toasted bread notes.

Another Oktoberfest that is nothing special. This is drinkable, and it gets me drunk, but that's about the end of it's redeeming qualities.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Aroma is metallic, and af sweet toasty malts. Very nice clear amber/orange body with a nice white head. Tastes sweet and lightly fruity, along with a metallic finish. Miouthfeel is stick and almost cloying. This was atright.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Coppery orange color. Bitter taste of hops blended nicely with malt and caramel. A delicate balance of bitter and sweet.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Brilliant orange-rust color with a weak head. Aroma is malty, bready and dry - quite pleasant, actually. Flavor starts out slightly harsh but becomes mildly pleasant towards the end of the glass: very bready and malty with a touch of grapefruit citrus tang spell a well-balanced winner on a long pair of scales. Despite the lack of head and thin appearance this beer has a lush, well-carbonated feel on the palate. Recommended!

jzzbassman (1588) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Pours a rouge color with beige head that fades leaving nothing behind. Smelled great, with sweet caramel and vanilla notes. The flavor was disappointing, small bodied and really lacking the maltiness I look for in the style. Slight acidic sharpness didn’t seem to fit the style.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle: Clear orange-amber, shining bright when held to the light, with a medium, frothy, off-white head that slowly fades to a ring before it disappears from the glass. The aroma is mildly sweet caramel, showing quality malt backbone, crisp grains, and a hint of toffee. The taste is midly sweet, very crisp and clean, with notes of lightly acidic caramel, sugar, malt, and dough. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, crisp and clean on the palate, with a dry finish. Quite pleasing.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle. Deep amber with a creamy white head. Creamy moderate fine-bubbled carbonation. Toasty toffee malt aroma with a little sweet and sour quality to it. Flavors are as advertised with a clean noble hop bitterness to help balance out the sweetness. Goes down soooo easy. Feels good in the mouth, and makes you want to keep drinking it. Eventually, it will force you to stop-face down usually.
