3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I haven’t tried many Octoberfests because of my IPA snobiness (which I’m outgrowing), but I enjoyed this one. A very pleasant aroma for a lager. Tastes slightly sweet, malty with nice hops bitterness in the background. Very drinkable.

Can. Anger with one finger head. Medium body with toasted caramel, bread, light nuts. Very well balanced with the hops. It’s not a beer that screams greatness at the onset, but I could drink a ton of this. Extremely well done.

Backlog entry: I had this one at the brewery. It’s a solid beer, nothing too unusual or stand-out.

12 Oz can.. Pours hazy orange with a creamy, off-white head and almost no lacing. Mild aromas of bready malt, oats and herby, nobel hops. Flavor has little malt up front, goes quickly to herby hop, almost thyme, then some bready malt finishing with malt and grain sweetness and herby hop linger. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and active carbonation and some cloying sugars. Overall, quite quaffable and mellow.

Clear golden with a thin tight white cap. Big Munich malt nose that’s biscuity and slightly corny. Crisp and bready nutty/toffee/German malty flavor that’s a touch grassy and very balanced. Just a malty but smooth and delicious Oktoberfest beer.

12 oz can at home. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, bready, mild floral notes, earthy, decent enough Oktoberfest.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great aroma with medium carbonation, the color is a dark amber from the various malts. Complex flavors arise from this beer from the first sip. Bready with toasted nuts make this beer very enjoyable. An excellent first lager from Revolution.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught pint at The Looking Glass in Janesville, WI, October 12th. Poured a dark somewhat brackish amber with minimal head, though some could be created with a bit of swirling...at first almost not aroma to be ascertained, just a dry husky leaf-like character; with several minutes a bit of caramel malt does come through and some resin...much the same experience in the mouth, with just a dry, dusky and bitter nothingess, but again it improves fairly dramatically with a few minutes sitting, and just enough sweetness comes out, and the ending dryness becomes less harsh. Medium-bodied, fairly strong carbonation. One of the better arguments I’ve experienced recently for not serving too cold, this I would have rated in the low 2s after the first couple of sips, but it became quite drinkable (if not among my favorites in the style by any means) in 15 minutes.
