2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A decent but middling version, quite a bit of biscuit-y and malty goodness. Not super exciting.

rich malty aroma, there’s a creamy quality to the aroma but also a very faint phenolic note. beautifully clear copper hued color. reasonable healthy head. very malt centric. a touch of a tangibles. clean finish. solid medium body.

Malty, nutty, slightly sweet with a hint of caramel. Smooth and full with a lingering finish and a hint of hops bitterness. Balanced overall.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, screw-top. Nose very sweet and malty with light spice, a little grassy citrus but not much, maybe some nice Munich. Pours bright clear orange with a dense off-white head. Taste floral and a bit too sweet, there’s some nice but faint hop backing, light spice therefrom, light bitterness and a light-medium body with a thinner malt than expected -- but if there’s Munich here, it’s nice, and if not, well, fooled me.

Good tasting beer, not too bitter, that leaves a slightly foamy head that quickly dissipates.

Bottle. A friend putting us up for a couple days had this in his fridge, and gave us one for the road. I find the aroma to be very subtle, almost can’t smell anything. Taste is mild, not bitter at all. Color is a light orange.

bottle. Underwhelming Oktoberfest beer. Might be past its prime, but hard to believe this was ever very good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a one finger fizzy beige head that faded quickly to a thin film. The nose is pretty decent, slightly sweet munich malt, and a minimal hoppiness. There’s a bit of huskiness that isn’t real wonderful though, as well as a bit of fruitiness that doesn’t fit as well. The flavor is a bit too sweet, with a bit of a grape like sweetness on the back end. This could use a bit of hops in here to help offset the sweetness a bit. Medium bodied with a bit of stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. Can’t say that this one measures up too well against the better examples of the style.
