3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Triumph in New Hope. Tapped today at 3 pm, and I enjoyed this at around 8 pm. Didn’t meet up to my expectations, but realize that I’ve been waiting for this beer since it was first listed on the fermenting board in early August. Still a very good Oktoberfest

For an Oktoberfest, it was ok. Not as sweet as I was expecting. The carbonation was a little harsh. Could have been better.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2006 Draft in Princeton. Nice amber appearance with a thick tan head. Retention was short. Aroma had a good maltiness. Citrus, courant, caramel were the main flavors. Fine, but a little watery and bitter at times.
Re-rate- Better this year. The Munich and Vienna malts worked well together. Caramel and dark fruits were there as well. Malty as an Oktoberfest
should be. 7/3/7/3/16 (10/7/06)

On tap at KSBF 08- Good clear amber with a decent foam head. Hops and a grain malt body. There was a slight spicy hop bitterness that was a little bit off for me. Otherwise good beer.

Lots of good Munich malt character, a little on the sweet side, could use a little aging, and maybe be fermented out a little more

I had it on tap. It pours amber with a small, off-white head and lacing. The aroma is bread and caramel. The taste is caramel, nut, bread, and hay. There’s a nutty aftertaste to it. It was really smooth and drinkable. This is a good one.
