look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: This one pours a clear golden color with a white head a good two fingers worth of head.

Aroma: Lemon zest, grassy, caramel malts, faint spice, apple, light cinnamon.

Taste: Malty sweetness in the front along with a smooth mouthfeel. Citrus and floral hop that brings a slight dryness but that mellows out. Caramel malts, cinnamon, faint pear and apple.

Notes: Overall this one is tasty and drinkable not a bad find either. Prost.

Seems like the Brewmaster was told to make an Oktoberfest style beer, but had to brew it with existing inventory. Beer has a slight toffee aroma. Flavor is sweet, a little malt, and some carbonic tang and that's about it. Appearance was a small creamy head. Body is strange- all the parts stand apart and don't work together and are somewhat unpleasant Totally forgettable beer. Give the bottle to a homebrewer.

Poured into a standard 16 oz. ale glass. Clear golden color with an off-white 1 1/2" head which hung around for 1-2 minutes. Overall, the look, feel and taste were all pretty much just above average.

Not much to it, but it's nice. Nice color, crisp, clean. A slight aftertaste of hoppyness but fades immediately. Definitely a session brew.

3.96/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a dimpled mug.

Look: It looks like a mug of melted caramel with a light cream colored top. There's not a lot of lacing, but the head settles to a nice film.

Aroma: Admittedly, there's some skunk but otherwise faint caramel, toasted malts, and toffee.

Taste: Very easy on the palate, soft caramel and toasted grains ease their way down the gullet. There's some tea tanginess in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and creamy, very easy going down.

Overall: Very drinkable, and very smooth. Nice price point as well.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 0.5L swing top bottle into a flared pint glass. Moderate hand. Stamped 18513 06.

A: Rather hazy, honey-colored body with 1 finger of mostly white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Yeast, bready malt. Wheat-esque fruit notes, including apple and banana. Slight spice. Somewhat light, but nice.

T: Slightly spicy yeast opens. Tempered wheat and malt notes quickly transition to a noble hop-fueled bitterness. Closes mostly dry. Minimal alcohol presence. Lingering floral hops and hints of wheat in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate to high carbonation with a fairly prickly feel. Light to medium body. Lacks a certain smoothness.

O: The flavors on this one seems a bit muted. Somewhat muddled overall. The wheat notes were unexpected. I do like the hopping, which is probably the high point.

Prost!
