3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pellucid amber/golden color with not much head. Aroma is very malty with a suprising hoppy presence. Flavor is lightly sweet with a dominant malt background. Finishes salty and rounded. This is chasing an Imperial Stout and a 120 minute IPA, so it's difficult, bare with me.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 On tap at Flying Saucer Houston. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some sweet grains and bread with a bit of caramel and raisin. Flavor starts with sweet grains and is joined a bit by caramel and raisin. Easy drinking.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprisingly light orangish hue for an Ofest, with a super head. Pungent sweet caramel aroma. Alcohol-malt on the tongue, but it mellows well after the first gulp. Man, I want a bratwurst now.

This is a nice oktoberfest but i’ve had 5 others this week and this was the most bitter and least sweet, i like a sweeter marzen..anyway, this is medium copper(red too) colour with impress head, adequate lacing..like i said, at tad on the bitter side, but still some good flavours in the beer..an good subtle beer i could see myself drinking allday, but needs to be sweeter, or on draft..

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
from wooden cask at "Ayingers" in Munich.
Broad, interresting hoppy nose.
Cloudy dark amber, creamy head with lace.
Fruity full body,
peach notes and enough malt.
Nice hop composition - slightly citric.
A bit wood taste, probably from the cask.
Nice fresh bitterhop aftertaste.
Not really a extreme beer in any way, but just plainly good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful pour - a bright amber with lazy carbonation and a pillowy head. The aroma is of fresh baked bread with a honey glazing. This is creamy in the mouth, almost to the point of being chewable. The flavor is toasty and sweet with a touch of herbal hops appearing near the finish, which is sweet but clean. An excellent Oktoberfest. I’ll be having more of these shortly.
