3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12oz) -- courtesy of MrFacto. Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold with a quickly diminishing small white head. Mild aroma is bready, malty and fruity. Flavour of malt, slightly toasty and fruity along with very light spicy hops and a light bitter finish -- simple yet pleasant to drink. Average bodied. Nothing great just simply a good beer.

Keg @ Sedona. Medium amber, small head. Flabby, sweet, bready nose. Some brown sugar and buts. Angel food cake. The taste is similarly bready, not particularly clean. Sweet finish. Medium body, light carbonation. Overall, could be reigned in a bit.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Orange color. Light body. Not heavy on caramel at all. Some citrus and basically pretty refreshing Oktoberfest.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a moderate cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasty caramel and some medium-skinned fruits.. sweet overall with a nice earthy touch on the back of the nose. The flavor found lightly-toasted caramel and pale malt topped by light earth and grainy bitterness.. dry finish.. decent balance. Lighter-bodied, dry, and grainy on the palate.. a little sour at times.. I’d have another.

Thanks OldGrowth. Looks like tea with lots o honey in it. Light orange brown, clear, with almost no head. Aroma is spice with cinnamon, applesauce, nutty malt, and floral hop. An interesting Oktoerfest. It is musty and spicy with a bitterness that comes in waves after the sip. Flavor also offers spices and a nice hop bite. Pepper, nutmeg, nuts, cinnamon, wood, and apple are all tasted. Finish is sweet. Feel is effervescent. A nice beer with a a variety of flavors and a bit of attitude.
