3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours light amber, small white milk froth like head, soft carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Malts and grain on the nose, slight caramel.   Very light tasting, malty with a subtle hop note.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quickly, dry, with a slightly toasted malt flavor.   A pleasing Oktoberfest, albeit rather simple.

Medium shiny creamy white head; brown hazy body with carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with notes of straw and grass. Strong, earthy malt and straw taste with toffeeish notes and a dry, hoppy background. Powerful, yet light and drinkable. Good! (0.5l on tap.)

Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light amber with a modest beige head and a bready aroma. There is a toasty malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. This is a well-balanced brew that is easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at ncbc. Pours a clear dark gold. Loose sudsy white rim. Caramel and wet leaves on the nose. Creamy light body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, and a dark tangy fruitiness on the mid palate, kinda like grilled plums or something. Not that i have grilled a plum, ever. This is clearly the king of the oktoberfest hill, because plenty of others try and fail to get a similar note. Mild toasty finish. It is for sure a harvest beer, begging to be served with slow roast pork.

(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 21 Oct 2011) Amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, slightly roasted nose with caramel, toast, crisp-bread and orange peel. Malty taste with notes of dark bread, toast, raisins and a mild, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with rounded mouthfeel. A certain malt sweetness throughout. Well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle at The Royale on their Tuesday Oktoberfest celebration night. Pours a somewhat cloudy golden color with a thick, foamy eggshell white head. Notes of grains, honey, Munich malts, red apple skins, straw, grass, dust, and nuts. Light-medium bodied, with soft but plentiful carbonation and a straw mouthfeel. This is a very nice Oktoberfest beer, a good traditional example of the style.
