Zlotta (29) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2014
Nice dark amber colour with clear liquid. Hasty off-white head. Malty sweetness with hints of honey and candy. Medium body, soft carbonation. Short bitter finish. Abolutely enjoyable but I would have liked the aroma to be a bit more intense.

Martin243 (773) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Live rating: 500ml bottle from Glug, Grainger Market Newcastle. Served cellar cool in an oversize lager glass. Pours the colour of eucalyptus honey with an off-white head that settles to a skim. Brown bread, honey and farmyard aroma. Chewy caramel malt flavour, with nuts and a hint of banana, offset by some hop greenery. Full bodied, smooth mouth feel, a little bitterness in the finish. Alcohol surprisingly assertive for a less-than-6.0% beer. Almost like a winter ale, very nice.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel and toasty malt, with a touch of graininess. The flavor is a little husky, a slight hoppiness on the finish. Light to medium bodied. Decent enough.

olio (6211) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours golden color with a small head. Malty, earthy and a bit nutty aromas. Malty nutty flavor with some hay and mild cellar notes. Very clean and flawless product, a bit too straightforward though.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Toasty, malty, noble hop, cereal aromas. Malty, bread, earthy flavors. Just an all-around, great drinking oktoberfest beer. It was the best of 4 german oktoberfest beers that I blind tasted.

ruigo (1117) - PORTUGAL - SEP 18, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear dark copper colour with a big white head than turns to a thin lacing during the tasting. Malt, toffee and bread in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is balanced slightly sweeter. Overall, a nice beer and for Oktoberfest I was expecting a less interesting beer.

Second Octoberfest beer I’m trying. Not my favourite style, I’ve read that exported beers (one I’ve drinked) are different from brewed for local market. Colour: dark red, clear. Foam: medium, solid. I’m not pro in tasting but I’ve found trouble in finding some hops in taste, just like pils but little bit stronger, with note typical for chech beers. To sum up: not bad but I’ll not dream about that beer.
