A-Dark Reddish Amber/Light Brownish, Filtered and very visible when held up to light. Very little foam on top of beer after being poured into a standard pint glass. Very little to no retention on sides of the glass when the beer is swirled around. Fair amount of bubble are visible ascending from bottom of the glass to the top of the beer.
S- Heavy scent of malts with a nutty scent with also a hint of floral combinations. Mild hop scent as well with a more perfumy scent to complement the malts and wheat aroma.
T- I picked up on strong malts at first taste with with hints of nuts and caramel giving the beer a warm and semi sweet taste to start. After the initial taste, the beer finished with a medium bitterness of hoppy taste but the taste of the strong malts remained in the mouth after finishing the drink.
F- Sits on the palate with a medium to heavy feel that would be expected from this style of beer. Finishes quite smoothly as it goes down the throat and leaves a heavy after taste in the mouth.
O- Very tasty beer well suited for the autumn through winter seasons. Fairly strong taste of caramel and nutty malts provide a warming taste appropriate for the season as well as a nice full smooth finish.

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.
