3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dark straw, very dirty and cloudy, large frothy off-white head, spotty lacing. Subtle tea leaf and mash like aroma, very slight butterscotch. Semi-sweet grassy flavor up front, lingers for a quite a while after the finish. No ill effects on the tongue. Fairly clean, no graininess that is common among other examples. Body and mouthfeel are average. Very slight butterscotch after the finish, otherwise remains semi-sweet malty/grassy. Glad I had the opportunity to try this one. Thanks Clark!

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Small off-white head that quickly dissipated, no lacing, fine sized bubbles, hazy, carbonated, and a light orange hue. Aroma was fruity and somewhat peppery. Acidic, sour, fruity and tart flavor. Not very inticing to say the least. Slightly tingly palate. Light-medium body. Disappointing and I’ll let it go at that.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep clear copper. Nose yeasty, caramel, tart apple. Flavor similar, unusually tart and sharp, crisply fruity. Bit of toffee. Rather mineraly, bit gritty. Mildly syrupy. Not that much going on.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(500ml, labeled Wies-N-Marzen) Small off-white head atop a faintly hazed apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, apple juice, caramel, light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, apple, some orange, light earthy. Watery light-medium body. I have enjoyed the other Wolnzacher beers, but this one was fairly disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden coppery color with a thin off white quickly dissipating head. Smells orangey with some light banana and grapefruit tinges. Taste is bitter and mellow with a nice peppery underbite. Some nice lemony elements pop through on the back of the tongue. Definitely above average for a German autumn brew.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of off-white colored foamy finely sized mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a carbonated hazy light brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was not good and contained doughy notes of vinegar. The mouth feel was tingly and off with strong vinegar notes. Vinegar malt dough flavor. Drain pour. Marked for re-rate.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pretty cloudy due to a good amount of yeast sedimetn. Relatively light for an oktoberfest, being a golden deep yellow. Low head. Aroma is delicately smooht with light malts, munich, and some earthy and slightly floral hops. Flaovr is subtly in that it has a medium maltiness but balances well with the hops. Pretty good and smooth but needs to be a little darker and a little bit more malty for an oktoberfest. Perhaps more body is needed too. Pretty good overall but I expected a bit more from burgerbrau.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled in a half liter bottle. Pours a mahagonny gold color with a lot of carbonation. The carbonation was a little overdone for my taste. Smelled like malts, apple and citrus. The citrus is also present in the taste. It outdoes the maltiness that I would expect from an Oktoberfest. This was pretty good, but not my favorite style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coppery golden. Appley aroma , which fades rather quickly. Full bodied, with some dusty hops, as well as a hint of that apple that I detected in the aroma. I suspect this is rather old, and will have to rerate.
