3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought at Trader Joes, and served in dimpled mug. Feint aroma of sweet rolls and fruit jam. Light copper color, brilliantly clear, thick foamy spongy white head. Easy drink, build flavor as it develops in your mouth. First and foremost, it is smooth, like velvet. Medium body , slightly crisp and dry at the end. Flavor of bread, and mild clover honey. It is mid September, so this Oktoberfest hits the season. Hard to have just one.

Nice and refreshing - high "drinkability". Think I prefer Spaten and Paulaner marzens by a thin margin.... but I already finished the ones I had saved up before I could rate them here.

Very Interesting oktober fest brew. Finish is slightly dry. Interesting combination of hops for an oktober fest brew. Worth a sample.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crisp fruity aroma, flavor is citrus and floral hops and hint of spice. Some similarity to a weißbier, but definitely an Oktoberfest

nice, refreshing lager with citrus hints. Golden body with little to no head. It’s not too much, but yet flavorful.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Nice cap. Clear orange/amber color with big rocky head. The aroma is of toasty malt, with just a hint of hops. The taste starts off very malty, with toasty caramel notes and enough bitterness to balance. It still finishes with a bittering dryness balanced with a lingering maltiness. I like it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
cloudy orange/amber color, large frothy head that dissipates quickly, malty-spicy aroma, a bit of candy sweetness, some fruitiness; flavor is malty with touches of spiciness, a fruity background, a precise and strong sweetness - but not cloying, flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, a bit tingly with a decent texture

Nice brew. sweet but not heavy. Amber colo. poured from the bottle with little head. crisp and refreshing. Had a lasting aftertaste that I couldnt place but that was not unpleasent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really the standard by which I compare O’fests. Deep, deep gold color with orange highlights and a white head. Noble hop aroma with plenty of malt and just a slight sulfury note. Flavor is intense malt but with a clean finish and noble hop character. Beautiful balance of rich maltiness without being cloying and without the caramel flavors that so many US brewers insist on putting in their beers. What a great beer.
