3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden, white head. Malty sweet fruity and yeasty. Quite fruity for a lager, but really enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A cloudy pale yellow beer with a weak white head. A faint aroma, of musty citrus fruits and spice, a tiny hint of vanilla, but none of the expected clove or tropical fruits. Medium and fizzy mouthfeel. The flavour follows on in the same vein as the aroma. There is a zesty citrus fruit that is tempered by a sweetish malt taste, that accompanies the sweet spice from the aroma. A pleasant drink but nothing like some of the great wheat beers out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Erdinger Oktoberferst (bottled 0,50L).
Voluminous and resistant head, nice and elegant yellow hazy color, much veiled and with a beautiful bubbly aspcet. Little spiced aroma with notes of banana, citrus and malty. Little sour taste, good lively body and acidulous final.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy orange-amber. Aroma is quite fruity...notes of orange and peach. Flavor is much less fruity. Your basic marzen really. Drinkable in large amounts. Nothing especially flavorful. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows some doughy wheat, lemon and soft vegetal notes. Pretty plain.
Sweet flavours, with some doughy wheat, corn and cooked vegetal sweetness.
Carbonation is too high.
A bit disappointing.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a whitish yellow with a thick, very long lasting white head. Smell is very fruity. Taste is fruity, sweetbread, yeast, pepper, mint. Not a lot of bitterness, a light bit of spicy, herbal hops. But mostly spicy. Medium, light body. Good okto-style beer, although it reminded me a lot of a strong belgian.
