3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at a street vendor just outside of the Theresienwiese heading into Oktoberfest in Munich, DE. This was a great beer to drink on the street while watching the sh*t show unfold as hundreds of thousands of drunk people walk into each other while trying to get into one of the dozens of huge beer tents on the festival grounds. I didn’t pour it, enjoyed straight from the bottle. This went down with a light bitterness and a nice malt backing, and it was fresh. For the other merits, I can’t really say, but to me this was a pretty decent Oktoberfest brew.

500 mL bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden lager with bubbles formed around the top of the glass. Mild malty aroma. Tastes malty, refreshing but a bit bland, too ’pure’. Super smooth though.

Had three different versions - from wooden barrels at Oktoberfest, from ked and from bottle. It’s obvious that best one is from wooden barrels - it’s like helles but more intense. Some years ago it had too much alcohol and was not easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Schöne gelbe Farbe mit reichlich feinporigem Schaum. Das Aroma hat eine leicht fruchtige und malzaromatische Note. Der Antrunk ist schlichtweg klasse! Weiches Brauwasser, vollmundig und trotz der 6% Alk. erfrischend! Neben der Malznote kommt eine gelungene Würze auf und endet in einem mächtigen, herberen Abgang. Grandiose Süffigkeit, ein schön komponiertes, ja herzhaftes Märzen!

Bottle from Brother Martin. Very fizzy in the glass; clear yellow lager with a thin head. Standard metallic malty aroma. This really isn’t a great example of the Munich beer craft - salty bitter malt, very bland.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500ml from Good Spirits Co., Glasgow):
Mainly a malty lager aroma to begin with some sweet malts piled on top and a little bit of biscuit and grassy hops. There is some citrus notes in there too but not a lot and has a clean finish.
Very light golden looking and clear with a pinky sized, foamy white head and plenty of bubles rising to the surface. The head stays okay, with only a slight initial reduction in size but the beer just looks too light to me.
Almost skunky to begin with a lot of sweet but not overly strong malts, there is some ctirus and grassy hops to but again both are light. I got some biscuit and lemon but not much eles really. It was an okay tasting beer but pretty basic in my opinion.
Light medium with lively carbonation and a smooth, wet mouthfeel. There is almost no bitterness in the end as well.
This is another beer that started to grow on me as I got further down the glass. There was quite a good malty base to this one with a some nice light hops and a biscuit like taste on top. It went down very well and would make a great session beer.
