2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of iced tea, caramel, toffe. Medium hazy brown hue with a small foamy mostly disappearing head that left little lace. Flavor is sweet and herbal. Palate is light bodied and watery smooth. Frackin crap. Made for the mindless masses so that they have something to drink.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a solid oktoberfest. I thought it tasted very smooth and malty with a sweet flavor and traditional taste. More like an amarican version, not very German.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in trade from alexsdad06. Thanks man!
Pours a nice crisp semi-clear amber with a beige short lived head. Smell is fruity, lightly yeasty, toasty and tangy malt. Taste is fruity caramel, toasty and tart malt with light lingering bitterness. Pretty easy to drink. Medium to light body and average carbonation. A touch on the thin side, but very good for the style, I thought.
