3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice orangey-amber color with a big, bubbly, white head. Big aroma that is present immediately when pouring... malty spicy aroma. Great taste, very smooth caramel taste. Pretty complex, with a little spice and yeast character. Overall... a delicious brew.
12 oz. bottle.

Good Oktoberfest brew...complex but clean finish, not nearly as syrupy as the Sam Adams Oktoberfest.

Surprised by this one. Pours an orange color with a nice fresh poofy head. Smells sweet and nutty. Tastes like honey, hazaelnuts, caramel, and other goodness. Great oktoberfest.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with bu11zeye (thanks!). Poured a deeper and cloudy orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, bready, and toasted malts. Tastes of bread, caramel, toasted malts, and had a spicy finish. Had light tart finish.

Bottle. Sweet mailky malty aroma. The taste is the same but smooth and rich. Pretty glowing orange color. As it warmed it was not the same....drink cold.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber/ orange appearance with a malty aroma. Flavor is dominated by the caramel flavor malt. This one is a strange interpretation. It reminds me of a brown ale and not a classic Oktoberfestbier. It is not bad but just not what I expect.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from lb4lb. Very faintly hazy orange/amber with a medium off white head of short duration. Grainy aroma with some toffee notes. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. There is a certain harshness in the flavor that accompanies the caramel sweetness, and a bit of spicy bitterness at the end. This just doesn’t have the full round malty sweetness of the classic Oktoberfest.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy amber pour with a fluffy beige head. Malty, sweetness on the nose. Tastes was a light bodied maltiness, with some almost tartness as well. Perhaps biscuity malt flavored. Somewhat of a quick light finish. Not a bad beer, but not one of my prefered styles either.

Flavor is initially malty, caramel, cookie-like. Then the spice rounds it out and stays in your mouth. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Not quite clear orange brown with an ivory head. Faint caramel and green apple. Taste is woody, sour golden raisin and marmalade with green plum tang. Bit of treacle and zwieback to finish.
