3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a 1 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is toasty, nutty, cereal and sweet malts, lactose, light floral and spicy hops, bready yeast. Flavor is sweet cereal, toast, powdered milk, floury bread, grass, floral and spicy hops. Light body with a full creamy feel and nice, blanketing, light carbonation. Good, not great, I am really curious what malts were used since it really smells and tastes like there is some sort of milk product in this to me right now. Maybe the day spent raking/burning leaves threw my senses off...
(En fût à Heorot): Typique midwest maltiness avec assaut d'agrumes. Je suis nostalgique soudainement. Iphonephan (7471) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Bomber from the archives, bottled circa 2007. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma. Whatever complexity this had when brewed has dissapate with age. tcon25 (978) - Duvall, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle pour at home thanks Jon for this one. Nice light body easy drinking golden pour, this is a very solid beer. drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Decent enough of an Oktoberfest beer, but they don't seem to have used much if any Vienna malt. To me, that's a key ingredient of a good fest beer. ryanscourt (1567) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Underrated style of beer especially when done right. Good malt flavor, good balance on the back end.

Bottle from trade. Pretty nice for a style I have really really enjoyed only a few of. This is straight forward bread and toffee...well done. Surprisingly not as richly malty as my favorites in style. TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Rusty orange. Straightforward but pleasant aroma of plum, honeyed toast, cookie, hazelnut and hay. Fluffy carbonation. Full body. Punchy Munich gives substantial weight as do plummy esters. Good textural grip to the deep toast, which hints at melanoidins at times and adequately wards off any excessive plummy slickness. Lovely blend of tobacco softness, hay dust and marzipan extends from the well-extracted maltiness. Dab of floral notes adds a refined touch and softens the body. Finishes beefy, fully malty and toasty, with toasted bread and restrained hop spice lingering. A straightforward example, and a tad underattenuated to me, but thankfully it is a serious rendition and not dry-hopped or something silly or Americanized. Pretty easy to like. The $10 price tag is very unreasonable, though. For around $3.00 a bomber, I’d be drinking this again.
