Nice ofest... Smooth and velvety. I like how there is such a variety in every beer style and how every beer in style isn't the same. I like it. Another good summit beer. Definitely not a 1. Crazy kids and their ones...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: less than finger of white head, copper color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: caramel, floral hops, notes of alcohol on exhale. Palate: medium body, soft-moderate carbonation, light sticky texture. Taste: sweet malty caramel, into a floral hops touch a the end, mostly just taste, but a slight bitterness as well. Overall, good balance of malty sweet with the hops in general, but drinkablility is slightly off and for the style, the hops are too pronounced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Canal’s Rio Grande. Poured an okay looking clear orange/amber with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor is malty with a slight spice touch, wet nut shells, wet bread and amber malts. Medium body with stronger carbonation and a quicker finish on the aftertaste. Meh, not that good.

Tasted this in the store and was much more like I expected for octoberfest. Beer I bought was much different. Seemed to be much hop character and less balanced

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 Clear dark amber with moderate carbonation. Tall slightly off-white bubbly head, receding casually. Aroma is nice... fruits, perhaps a bit of caramel. Taste is slightly spicy fruit with a solid malt / bread backbone. Not too sweet. Moderate-to-substantial feel. There is a very slight bittering in the finish that fades quickly. Very slight presence of alcohol in the aftertaste.
