3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best offering on draft at the Chili’s in Gilroy while returning home. Pours a very clear dark amber with an off white head that is small, but retains. Both aroma and flavor have an overt malt richness. Some faint toast and plenty of caramel and bread loaf. This was quite tasty and enjoyable for a fest beer.

12-ounce bottles in a large dimpled mug. Not necessarily a bad beer, I just don’t think I like the style all that much.

Originally rated on 9/15/08. Octoberfest is a fairly solid beer all the way around. Golden amber body, average carbonation, fair laceing left on glass. Flavor of sweet caramel malts, nicely balanced, with a full body.

Aroma and taste isfruit, caramel and some hops. A short ending with a tiny bitterness. Not very exciting this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated from old notes. A medium bodied brew in which the malts are quite predominant. Only in the aftertaste did the hops come to the forefront. Well balanced, with a warm alcohol presence that makes itself felt after mid-bottle. Pleasant.
