look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Amber pour with thin beige head, sticky lacing, light malty aroma. Taste is sweet malt, hints of maple, caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is slick to watery, with lingering candy sweetness, slightly metallic. Good try, but just average.

Picked up some pounder cans tonight for a pretty expensive $3ish at Brewforia Meridian (will probably be cheaper around town) ... Poured into my big nonic glass... Fairly clear amber red brew with a lite tan head that doesn't stick around for too long.

Nose is big toasty notes with pretty nutty maltiness..

Flavor mirrors the nose... but there is a bit of fruitiness that I can grab but have a hard time identifying.. Not sure if a lager yeast was used; but if not, they did a good job making sure this was a clean rendition of the style.

Well done and obviously tastes fresh.... Was lager yeast used? I want to know.

On tap at Sockeye's (S)ocktoberfest party, 10/8/11.

A: Pours ruddy amber with golden hues and off white lace that sticks fairly well.

S: Caramel malts and roasted characters, small amounts of bittering hops and a slight floral/herbal component.

T: Mirrors the nose; more caramelly than toasty, and not overly bitter...although the finish is a touch dry. Good toasted grain presence, bits of woody/nutty character.

MF: Fuller than most Oktoberfest beers I've enjoyed this year. Moderate body, low carbonation.

O: An ok offering, holds its own for the style I believe.

22 oz. unlabeled bottle gifted by local brewer, consumed at pre-BCS party.

One finger off-white head, medium dissipation with above average lacing. Clear light amber body, multiple streams of rising carbonation. Nose is fairly bready with a slight bit of roast and caramel, floral hops. Taste mirrors the nose, a fair bit of toast, some caramel sweetness in the middle, minimal hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium, decent effervescence. Good drinkability, but to be honest, not a very memorable beer.
