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.

On draft at Mr. Dunderbaks. Cereal, cereal, cereal. Very complex in the chex arena with nice yeasty and cereal flavors throught. Nice malty balance, but low on hops. Tasty! Pours golden brown.

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.

[758-20071013] Tap @ West 50 (Mississauga, ON). Very faint aroma has hints of banana yeast. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Bland yeasty flavour has a weird straw characteristic. Light body is kind of watery. Mediocre.

A good head with a malty aroma coming off the beer. The beer is a copper orange color. The taste is very balanced between a slight hops and malt. Enjoyed this beer very much

12oz bottle. Pours with a big billowy head, but it doesn’t last. Not much aroma, maybe too cold. Beautiful caramel/orange. Smooth, well balanced. A very, very good beer.
