3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium golden amber, with a large foamy head. The off-white head still persisted during the session. The aroma is upfront, with toasted malts and some slight hoppiness. Taste is also strong and largely relfects the aroma--a mild toasted malt flavor is front and center, with some bready, slightly grassy qualities. Hoppiness imparts a little bitterness but is definitely in the background. Mouthfeel is average. In all, a fine Oktoberfest beer if flavor is high on the list of priorities.

Bread, biscuits, dominate. This is a malty beer, not too much in the way of hop flavors. Not my favorite style, but for what it is it’s quite good. Excellent session beer for early fall.

Love the bottle design and the fact that it’s a pint bottle, which I think more beers should be because I have pint glasses that I want to fill up! Pretty biscuity and fairly creamy palate, which is nice. The aroma is definitely better than the actual taste, but they compliment each other nicely. I’ve drank this both out of the bottle and in a glass, and out of the bottle it is actually surprisingly bad!

.5L bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold/light amber with a huge billowy head. Aroma is fairly weak caramel malts. Taste is clean, sweet malts with a bit of a buttery, yeasty finish. Hops are extremely subdued and there is no real bitterness to this beer. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This makes an outstanding food beer and goes down easy. Not bad for the price.

A classic done right, I will enjoy this very good German beer a couple times a year from now on, makes Oktoberfest wannabes taste different

This golden reddish beer has a mild malty aroma. It is very well balanced not too hoppy with a smoky type flavor.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a foamy white head. Aroma has a bit of band aid. It may be a bad bottle. Once behind it the aroma was honey sweet. The flavor is syrupy sweet up front with a touch of floral hops and a clean dry finish.

This beer brings me back to the time I was travelling on a train from Salzburg to Munich for the 2012 Oktoberfest. On the train I met a few locals and I decided to challenge the Germans to a beer drinking contest. By the time the first German hit the ground drunk I was about 6 liters deep and they were somewhere on their 4th and 5th. The weather was great that day

Poured from bottle into stein. Very nice bronze color with plenty of head. Malty aroma that did not hit you, very soft. Slightly thicker mouth feel. Taste is of malt and biscut. A little bitter on the aftertaste. I would have prefered this in early fall but very enjoyable and drinkable.

Pint bottle from Trader Joe's. Very thick head but with minimal lacing. Lighter bodied than was initially expecting.
