3.75/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-clear/semi-cloudy reddish/brown, amber color with an eighth of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that collected in the center of the top of the beer.
Aroma: Very malty and bready, with notes of caramel, toffee and clover.
Taste: Like the aroma, the beer is very malty and bready, with notes of freshly baked baguettes or soft pretzels, followed by some caramel sweetness and finish by some hoppy bitterness that is in beautiful balance with the malty and sweet flavors of the beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium and smooth. Not much in the carbonation, though. With an ABV of 5.3%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: This is another solid American version of an Oktoberfest beer. Great balance between the hops and the malt. Very good. This is another Oktoberfest beer that I’ll have to add to my rotation.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: 1” off white fluffy head recedes moderately with gracious amounts of lacing. Lovely reddish brown color with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: true to the style the malt aroma is dominant but there is a nice floral hop in the smell as well.
Mouthfeel: medium body and sticky with a nice dry finish.
Flavor: Just awesome. Lovely combination of the roasted malts with caramel and a bit of chocolate. The hops are well balanced to the malt and round this beer out nicely.
Overall: Excellent job Harpoon!
