3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, from Total Wine & More, Plano North. Clear amber, rich firm head. Perfumy malt aromatic nose. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Flora and husky with notes of caramel. Sugar and dough crysal malt. Mid bitter finish. Typical American style interpretation of the style. Well executed as such. Lacking some of the malt softness and near infinite drinkability that is what separates the best festbiers from the crowd.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thought this was pretty good. No aroma to speak of. Nice copper and amber color. Full and somewhat weighted palate. Stronger malt flavors than expected with some nutty notes. Pleasantly surprised.

Pours an amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is of sweet malts. The taste is also sweet malts and mild spices. This beer is rather sweet, you pick up some caramel in the taste as well.

Aroma is on, appearance is right, taste is only ok though. Slightly sweet and malty but with a weird astringent thing going on for me with the hop profile. Not bad but other better oktoberfest beers out there.
