12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Orange with a one-finger head
S: Pleasant roasted malt, grains, and some baking spice
T: Lots of grains up front, pleasant malt/caramel on the midpalate and a coriander/grain finish
M: Medium-bodied, light carbonation
O: Solid beer. I'd love a kiss of hops but overall it fits the style well

Pleasant aroma, malty, hints of spice, perhaps some grass. Nor too strong. Clear amber, lots of bubbles, a medium creamy-appearing off-white, slightly tan head, dropping fairly quickly to a bubbly cap with some thick lacing. Good body and mouth feel. Taste is all malts, bready and hints of spice, relatively simple, not sweet, with only a little bittering in the middle through to the finish. This keeps the taste balanced and makes the finish not all malty sticky. Moderately clean finish. I like the taste of this beer a lot, but it could use a just bit more balance from the hops.

Pours a deep coppery color with some foamy head that sticks a bit.

The smell seems pretty subdued to me, obviously malt dominant, but nothing to really characterize. Bready, maybe a faint hint of spice, some caramel sweetness.

The taste is good, but also seems to be lacking some depth. Clean flavors, bready, just a little spice, and caramel sweetness. Only a mild bitterness in the background.

The feel doesn't seem to be robust enough for the style. It seems on the thinner side, but it does drink clean.

It is an OK beer, but it just seems to be lacking something.

Light copper with a minimal off-white head dying to a thin fuzzy film.

The nose is not too aromatic, with some toasty brown bread, a hint of raisin, nuts, and actually, it seems, some pungent hops.

Taste is nice toasty brown bread, Brazil nuts, Spanish peanuts, with a slight hint of char.

Fully frothy with a light to medium body and a finish skirting the line between wet and not.

Excellent beer. I look forward to fall each year when this beer becomes available again. Was very happy to see it on the shelf already and it's only August. Plenty of time to get my fill before this crisp beauty of a beer becomes unavailable again. Only available for sale in Wisconsin. I'm always looking to trade for beer I am unable to find in my state.

This is my absolute favorite handsdown Oktoberfest style beer. It has a hoppy bite, nutty taste, pine-like smell. Very good.
