Pours a nice, soft, off-white head that has good retention. Sweet malt with a slightly spicy hoppiness. Hazy, straw-amber color. Starts with a spicy hoppiness, a flash of metallic, then biscuits. Into the finish, the spicy hops come back (this time with more of the bitterness) and blend with the biscuit to make for an interesting sweet/spicy-bitter combination.

This is pretty good. It starts with spicy hops and finishes with them. The between parts are a little boring, but it's pretty good overall.

A - Pours a deep honey that is crystal clear with loads of bubbles. The beer has half a finger tan head with little lacing and little retention

S - Aromas of mainly malts. Has a nice caramel and nutty buckbone to it though. Pleasing

T - Very good flavor. Not complex but appealing. It is a malty beer and much like the aroma there is a ice caramel and nutty flavor that omes from the malts

M - a light bodied beer that finishes slick in the mouth

O - A very good Oktoberfest. Not a beer I would crave all the time but it'd sit very nice on a cool October day sitting around a camp fire. Easy enough to drink that one could enjoy several

A-Clear amber, one finger head that doesn't last long, not much carbonation.

S-Caramel, toffee, malt. Mainlty malt. Some bread. No hops.

T-Rather malty, some caramel, tad bit of coffee. Bread as well. Not hops to balance it out.

M-light, not much carbonation, tad watery as well.

O-The flavors weren't strong, the balance wasn't there. A boring oktoberfest.
