3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bottle to a glass. That Euro-lager aroma is dominant, but I STILL can’t place a comparison. The best I can describe it is damp earthy rocks near a freshwater body of water. No moldy scent, just damp, cool, and fresh. Taste is fresh with some sweet notes here and there. There is just the slightest, and I mean slightest touch of banana candy. Overall, an excellent lager. I love it. Re-rate notes: Just want to add that no matter what the style, the Bavarians do the best brews.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Pours amber, moderate head. Smells very sweet. Delicious flavor, sweet and malty. Some hops slightly come through in the background. Leaves a sweet aftertaste. Great all around Maerzen, very drinkable.

Probably the best Oktoberfest in the world. Light enough to have a few and such a classic smooth taste

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean, delicate malt aroma. No diacetyl or hops in the mix. Medium golden color, crystal clear, though minimal head and poor retention. Flavor is similar to the aroma - delicate maltiness, some toasty notes, no hops or diacetyl. Carbonation is a touch high, but not so much as to make it unenjoyable. Overall, very tasty brew, well made and enjoyable.

This is my favorite Oktoberfest beer. Pours a medium copper with an off-white one finger head. Nice balance with between the hops and lightly roasted malts. Appropriate carbonation and great overall appearance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Sweet roasty malts are prevalent in the aroma. This had a light to medium sweetness, medium body, and thick texture that had a very thirst quenching attribute. Overall, this was a very enjoyable beer that I could recommend to any lager lover!

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 Pours an orange copper with fluffy white head that seems to last a bit. Smells of honey oat, sweet hay, and maple leaf malts. Tastes of sweet honey oats, slight maple leaf, and almost an ethereal peat malt taste. Nicely complex and dapper. This is what Oktober Fest is supposed to taste like.
