3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a deep amber with a thin white head. Taste is decently hoppy for an oktoberfest. Otherwise not too much distinctive flavor to seperate it from other beers of the style. I’d call it above average, makes for a decent session beer for the season.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color is a very pretty red amber with a maltball-colored light tan head. Faint malty aroma, possibly of wet hay and immature green apples. Medium, chewy body with smooth lightly hopped flavor, but not too flavor overall. A beer suitable for the fall season of warm and cool days: The medium body of fallen leaves and the very light aroma of the impending dry wintry air give it two balanced dimensions that match the changing season. I’d say it’s a great beer to have a few of while sitting around with a couple of old friends while watching the game on a lazy Sunday.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was three fingers high and off white with good retention. Not much lace was left behind at the end. Subdued aroma overall with whiffs of husky grain and spicy hops. Slightly sweet on the tongue. Flavor was malt dominated. Mostly cereal grain. There was also a nutty note and dried fruit.

12oz - BB 2/24/08 Nice caramel colored liquid under no real head. Bock like wood notes on nose. Light wood and mild sweetness on the palate. Not their best.

Bottle, Pours out a orangish copper color, with light head, quickly dissapering. Incredibly smooth, maybe too smooth, like a wated down macrobrewery. Just another beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful clear brownish-golden, with a medium off-white head. Aroma is mainly malty with spice hints, mainly cloves. Flavor is rich, malty, spicy (again cloves), with some hop bitterness. Zingy, tingly, the hop component dances on the tongue. Prosit!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured orangish copper color with little head that faded to nothing. Had a light malt aroma with average oktoberfest taste. I can’t get onboard with these oktoberfest beers. They all taste to similar and watered down. This version is no different and is quite tasteless. NOT IMPRESSED
