Appearance: A clear, rich medium-gold, and a massive, tightly beaded, off-white head with a smooth, frosty top, 3/3

Aroma: Spicy hops dominate the malt, which is atypical for an Oktoberfest. In fact, not only is the hop aroma quite prominent, is also very complex. The good news is, it's delicious: cinnamon, pine, citrus, rosemary, and a rad of tropical fruit. Buries beneath all of this hoopla is the muffled presence of a doughy malt scent. 8/12

Taste: Finally, the malt bursts through, although there is still some apricot on the tongue. The malt is both doughy and nutty, but it lacks the toastiness one wants in an Oktoberfest. Another plus, however, is that the taste is appropriately clean. 17/20

Mouthfeel: A silky, medium-light mouthfeel with a dry finish despite light carbonation is very appropriate for the style. 4/5

Overall: A good looking, refreshing Oktoberfest with a fantastic (though deviant) perfume. The clean taste is style-appropriate for the most part--it's just a bit too estery and not quite toasty enough to win my total respect. 7/10

The name of this beer is misspelled on the site, it's with a c on the bottle and not a k. Clear bright orange color with a big stick off white head. burnt toast, very toast nose with a good deal of hop character.

Light bodied easy drinking nice balance. Surprisingly pretty true to style. I've had some hit or miss beers from this brewery. Toasty character up front with a touch of sweetness. On the heavy side of being light bodied with medium bristly carbonation. A bit of burnt toast points along the mid palate adds some bitterness with an underlying earthy hop bitterness. Finishes very dry. Pretty nice. Touch of alcohol heat but doesn't take away from the drinkability.

Pours a copper amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and Taste of sweet toasted barley, fruity notes with some mild floral earthy hops. Palate is a medium body, smooth with moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet toasted malt, barley, yeast and fruity notes with some mild hops bitterness slightly nutty ending. Overall a good solid, crisp refreshing session brew.
