2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. pours clear copper with small white head. nose is sweet malty and grainy and corn. flavor is pretty grainy with slight toasted malt to it but the carbonation is really spritzy. it actually doesn’t have a bad flavor it’s just really watery and fizzy mouth feel. pretty adjuncty but a nice replacement for BMC.

Medium brownish orange color, thin off white head. Unremarkable malt nose with slight hints of toffee and dough. Light bodied and drinkable. Well carbonated with a crisp dry finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a tailgate party for the Illinois vs Wisconsin football game. Pours amber with a white head. Very weak aroma of munich malts. Medium to light bodied with a fizzy texture . Flavor of caramel, bread, and citrus. However, the carbonation really overpowers the rather boring malt profile. A poor example of the style, macro like.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this beer on 6/2/2006. Aroma is a light sweet malt scent. Color is a bright golden brown with good carbonation and light head. Taste is light and smooth. Starting with a light body it goes down smooth. Finish comes on with a faint malt flavor that is slightly sweet then is backed by a very light bitterness and smooth feel. It is a drinkable brew but it is sooo far off from what an Oktoberfest should be. As an Oktoberfest its just a weak ass brew.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear amber with sudsy white head and zero bubbles. Aroma of sweet slightly toasted malt. Flavor is tasty, extremely sweet... sweet aftertaste too... hmmm? Carbonation is dull and adds nothing. If it was on special I guess I would order it... maybe...tastes like its got some adjunct

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Pours a light amber body with a thin, white head.
Smell: Well, whaddya know? It smells just like a poor apple cider. Let me verify this with a re-sniff. Yep, poor apple cider.
Taste: Light bready maltiness with a hint of caramel and sweetness. Notes of apple and, regrettably, vegetables. Very mild bitterness on the sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A poor representation of the style, and an outright disappointing beer.
