2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: This looks like most Oktoberfests I’ve seen except the body is a bit darker in color, being a copper. The body is crystal clear with only light amounts of carbonation, a thin tan head settles after the pour and quickly dissipates into a light coating on top.
Aroma: The aroma reminds me a bit of cooked vegetables, light floral hops, and some malts, not a fan at all.
Taste: The flavor is very much like the aroma, it’s not very attractive with the vegetable flavor right on the intro.
Palate: Medium body with light carbonation.
Overall: This is just not good, I wasted $1.30 on it, I guess it’s my own fault.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured clear amber w/ a small fizzy beige head mostly diminishing. Mild sweet aromas of caramel, toffee, and bread. Initial flavor is light sweet followed by a very light bitter of short duration on the finish. Taste is similar to the nose, but so subtle it seems like a watered down beer. Easy to quaff, while there is nothing offensive with this beer, there also isn’t any particular trait that is memorable either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shaker pint draft at Twigs in Rochester, Minnesota. The pour is a clead caramel golden with a smallish tan head. The aroma is caramel and toffee malt, touch of grassiness, and a faint hint of metallic. The taste is mostly the caramel malt, along with a touch of drying grassiness. The taste was a bit cleaner than the nose. The palate is medium bodied, slightly below average carbonation and a sweet after taste. Pretty bland malt sweet, though clean enough.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a mug. Pours a dark amber, transparent, with a small beige head that fleets away quickly. This beer smells sweet with caramel notes, toffee, wheat bread. I don’t really care for the feel on this one. There is a great amount of bubbles rising through this one, that really gives this a spritzy feel. I think this detracts from enjoying the flavors quite a bit. The flavor profile is pretty average to the style: sweet caramel, mild bitterness, metallic ting on the back end. This beer had some some things I liked about it, but overall nothing really worked together. With so many better options available to me at this time of year, I don’t see myself reaching for this one again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. I’m a big fan of the style, but this beer is why you don’t have northern germans try and do a münchen-style beer. It just fails. Small stable head, good lacing. Copper coloring, looks and tastes "thin". I was expecting more taste and body, but I agree with other raters, it’s just lacks taste and composition. Just sort of lackluster. Get a Paulaner instead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10 oct 2012, bottle. Light brown, clear, some occasional bubbles. Nose is huge caramel malt. Thin body and very fizzy. Tastes strongly of caramel and straw. Decent enough. It is fizzy enough that the caramel doesn't come across as sickeningly sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white head that quickly dissipates into thin lacing. Smells semi-sweet and a little doughy and skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Very easy to drink too. Not bad!
