3.67/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance : Pours a hazy golden color with a modest head that leaves some lacing

Smell: Caramel malt aroma, rather nice

Taste: Starts with caramel up front but the finish is hoppy and a bit grainy

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Not bad at all but I would prefer a less grainy finish

Thanks, beerhandy, for the opportunity

My first review.

A - nice amber with a 1 cm tan head when properly poured, dissapated
within seconds, and slighlty hazy.

S - i have a difficult time describing smell... i smell, grain and alcohol.
doesn't sound all that appealing, but it smelled good... i looked
forward to my first sip.

T - just sweet enough to balance the hops, nice "warm" toasty notes...
just a hint of something spicy and bitter when it gets to the back of my palate. much fuller flavor than the regular choc by my taste...

M - one reviewer mentioned there being little carbonation... the bottle I
i would not want to be any more carbonated. I thought it was
perfect. light-medium body with "warm" mouthfeel.

D - I plan on buying a few more!

Mostly I think this beer has suffered in the bottle some. It has low carbonation and that really effects the rest of the perception of this beer. So I only punished it in the mouthfeel as it still smells really good. Like sweet wort with a mince of german hops and a light touch of alcohol. The taste is how I prefer my Octoberfest beers, a little on the sweet side full of caramel and toasty flavors. Good stuff I think it would be better on tap.

12oz bottle from beerhandy as part of BIF 24. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" light tan head above the clear orangey amber brew. Head fades quickly down to an even layer of bubbles, with average lacing. Aroma is balanced, with a tending towards grain hulls. Taste follows the nose, but with a bit more tart fruitiness in the middle as I would want/expect. Closes slightly chalky. Mouthfeel and drinkability not too bad, but this one kind of let me down in the end.

Pours to a clear light amber color (if you pour carefullly off the sediment) and permanent white head. Aroma is malty and a bit sharp (is there wheat in there?) with caramel notes. Flavor is semi-dry and malt oriented, with no discernable hop character other than balacing bitterness. Finishes dry and malty. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and fizzy. This is a bottle-conditioned malt-oriented amber lager with a distinctive original "choc-beer" personality. Not an extraordinary beer, but a solid citizen nonetheless.
