3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria.
The beer is nearly clear, and appears light orange in color. The head is thick and frothy, measuring a little over an inch thick. The aroma is somewhat muted and weak, though I have yet to experience a really assertive, bold aroma from a beer of this ilk. The flavor is nice, with a strong malt and grain presence, followed by a light dose of pleasant spices. Great feel on the palate. I could throw back a few pints of this. I would have this again.
Serving type: on-tap

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft from Proof. Deep golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is typical German maltiness with touches of honey. Flavor is the same with a medium thick body and a quick slightly bitter finish. Another run of the mill Oktoberfest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. I’ve had this before, but never rated. A good example of the style, sweet but not overbearing, and balanced that some American oktoberfests tend to not have.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium amber/orange hazy pour. Head was thick and reminiscent of Guinness' and a quarter inch thick. Sour wheaty scent. Flavor is spicy but not too strong. Taste opens up to lactose, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and is a little sour. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy.

Draught. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate head. Light and slightly malty aroma. Not a lot of flavor, but it is a subtle oktoberfest, which I like.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at The Oak Cafe. Pours a golden light orange-yellow color with nice amount of head that lingers a bit. Aroma is faint and underwhelming. Smells like a pale lager, a bit of malt and noble hops. Taste is the same. Maybe just a slight caramel malt taste but its very faint. This beer doesn’t seem like an Octoberfest at all. I’m wondering if I got poured the wrong beer. Pretty bland, tastes pretty much like a bland pale lager.
