3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Rhino, Toronto. Someone really needs to change the Commercial DeScription, as this beer is available in several locations in Toronto and area, often alongside the Marzen, as it was at Rhino. Bright yellow-aroma, good sized white head. Well balanced aroma of fresh bread hints of honey and barley, and some herbal hop character. Very active carbonation, quite refreshing. Fresh and well-balanced flavour, with the herbal/grassy hops complimenting the sweet and slghtly grainy malt. Pretty nice stuff, flavourful and easy to drink.

Draught at the Beerbistro. Pours a light yellow colour with a slight white head. Nose of yeast and sweet malt. Flavour is malt, grains and yeast. Lightish body. Ok, but definitely nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma has a stale, earthy smell of cereal grains, malts. The appearance is the reddish/orange of an Oktoberfest. The flavor is again mostly the malted barley, very cereal-like and not very pleasant. The finish is entirely unremarkable, mostly malts. This is one of the weaker Oktoberfest/marzens.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark brown barely clear lager that pours with a small tan head that disappears in a minute. The aroma is strong barley and rye. The flavor is very malty, grassy and full. The character, however is sharp and bitibg whilst being disagreeable. The finish taste like barley malt syrup from concentrate. This beer does remind you of the fall season though, primarily with its aroma.

On tap at a German restaurant. A very nice lager! Full-flavored with the right amount of bitterness. Refreshing. The beer I ordered was simply called Hacker-Pschorr lager, so I assume this is the same stuff.
