3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, rich German lager aroma. Beautiful crystal clear amber/copper color with a foamy, long-lasting white head. Excellent biscuity caramel malt Oktoberfest taste. Well balanced and restrained noble hops. Lightly creamy texture with a fullness that’s still easy to drink and refreshing. Leaves a nice toasty and slightly bitter taste behind. Definitely one of the best German Oktoberfest beers out there.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is bronze with a frothy head. Smell is sweet malts. Taste follows the aroma; at first too sweet but mellows after a while. Not bad but not my thing. Too malty sweet

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Beerdock, Crewe. Pours chestnut brown with good cream head. Faint caramel aroma. Taste is fairly weak along the lines of average supermarket real ale. Lightly sweet character with a vague bitterness but ultimately not a lot going on. Disappointing.

Draught pint at St Veronus Oktoberfest. Nice chestnut colour. Not much head but laces nicely. Somehow sweet but dry for the style at the same time. Goes nicely with Gruenkohl Suppe and Brathendl, I think.

On tap at The Knick. Malty beany sweet, double decoction-type aroma. Golden amber-dark clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet and malty, noble hops. Beany-sweet nutty finish with lingering malty after. Tasty Oktoberfest.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of malts and hint of caramel. Taste is sweetish too with notes of grain and caramel. Finushes with a hint of bitterness. Quite soft CO2. Smooth but slightly watery mouthfeel. (0,5 l bottle, best before 04/15).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: watery sweet beer.
Aroma is weak and hoppy, taste is average cereal (almost like muesli), palate is soft caramel.
It would be far better if not for the overall bland sensation (too watery)

Bottle from Whole Foods. Nice burnished brown amber colour, small head. Initial hints of malty sweetness, biscuits and caramel. Minimal bitterness. Soft on the palate. Nice and easy to drink, a little bland.

bottle to glass - grain was main aroma. orange amber pour. taste has no redeeming qualities to me - more soapy than malty; metallic finish. no thx.
