3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from work. Bottled in August, if I’m reading the notch on the label correctly; between three and four months old. Aroma is dough, bread, toast--variations on a theme I guess. Pours amber with a light haze and a bone-white head that collapses into a collar fairly quick. Taste starts out sweet before becoming bitter--much more so than traditional examples and very dry; flavors of caramel and toast. Much better than I was expecting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pub 44, Lynnwood. Thin foam, clearish brown malt. Eggy round malt in nose and through to the body too. Warm creamy malt, some light metallic bittering by the end. Just meh.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clean copper color with a malty aroma. Taste is minor caramel with a bready taste. Easy drinkable beer with a thin aftertaste. This beer was light in complexity and seemed to miss the Oktoberfest mark.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep caramel orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet bread malts, caramel, and a bit of earth. Flavor is almost all caramel and dough malts. Sweet in the beginning, slightly bitter mid, and sweet finish. Medium full body. Nothing exceptional here- just a solid ’fest.

Still looking for a true standout this year, but this one wasn;t bad. Nice mix of caramel malt and toast in the aroma, and with the added complexity of slightly grassy hops in the finish. A little richer and this would be quite good."

Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA
Dark amber to brown color, hazy, with compact head. The aroma is light, the flavor more pronounced; it has some caramel with a cereally character, and lowish bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: medium amber orange with one finger of near-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: bready caramel malts, some nuts, brown sugar, earthy hops. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with a bit of floral hops. Finish: slightly sweet, toasty malts linger a bit, but overall a decently clean finish. Notes: A decent enough okto brew. First beer from this brewery, would try another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malt, strong dough and yeast aromas. Golden copper in color with a good head. Mild bitters, doughy and fruity esters. Nice lite beer, but an Oktoberfest should be a lager in my opinion.
