22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass; no bottle dating, but this is likely to be over a year old. Pours hazy golden orange color with a small 1 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, apple, pear, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, toffee, herbal, and light earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and decent strength; very pleasant. Taste of caramel, toast, pear, biscuit, apple, toffee, nuttiness, floral, herbal, and light earthy spiciness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, light fruit, nuttiness, biscuit, toffee, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of flavors with good robustness; zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest lager. Nice robustness with a good balance of toasty and nutty flavors with light fruitiness(which I prefer in the style); very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Appearance: slightly hazy apricot, minimal to no head retention. No lacing.

Nose: Malty sweetness, honey, clover, tiny citrus and tropical fruit to finish.

Taste: Calm and pleasant mouthfeel. Sweet malt, herbaceous crispness.

Notes: A malty, nice beer. Not like Rouges' usual production, but still a nice beer to drink.

Slightly chill hazed amber with a puffy white head.

Toasted grain aroma with a nutty scent like wheat bran. Slightly spicy noble hop aroma saffron and hay scent. The nutty smell makes this smell a lot like a Bock beer.

Starts out a little sweet with a slight tobacco taste. Biscuit malt flavor. Herbal tasting the sweetness again makes me think Bock beer.

Mouthfeel is full.

Overall it is expensive and too sweet.
