3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 A clear and light gold beneath a thin, almost not there head. Pleasing aroma of grass and hop. Taste was sweeter than I’d expected (don’t know why I was thinking that), but pleasing enough. Mouthfeel was rich and smooth. Finish had a bit of hop "bite". A decent beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is malty with hay and grassy hops. It also has a bit of corn. The appearance is deep gold with an average head that fades to nothing. The flavor is like the aroma and is a bit acidic. The palate is typical for the style. Overall this is one of those beers that doesn’t really have a lot of faults for the style but doesn’t seem very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle at Ship & Mitre, Liverpool. Clear pale gold, lasting white head. Good lager yeast/malt aroma. I do really like these export beers. Good mouthfull of stunning lager, great lemon, subtle hop. Nice whack of alcohol, but with no obvious alcohol. Not quite hoppy enough to be a pils and I’d like a bit more hop, but this is great stuff, great drinkability. so dirnkable and goodish bite on the end. Went so well with the fish and chips I didn’t want the bottle to finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A crisp looking yellow body with a white head that faded away about half way through. Aroma did have a slighlty skunky quality to it but also had a bread note that had a sublte sweetness to it. Flavor was crisp and full of malt notes. A decent amount of carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (munich gold). Pours a clear yellow golden color with about a finger of white head that goes down pretty quickly. Smells of sweet bready malts with just a touch of hops. Taste is mainly a bready malt flavor with a nice sweetness and a hop crispness at the finish to balance it out. Body is light and crisp. A little on the thin side. Good german beer that’s easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice gold color with a clean clear yeasty aroma. A nice lasting white head and a smooth, almost sweet (not in a malty way) flavor which is unlike most beers I prefer (bitter). This is as close to the Oktoberfest beer you get at the Augustiner Fischerbrau tent in Munich. Actually tastes more like it than the Austiner Oktoberfest bottled beer we get here in the US.
