Bottle from WholeFoods Piccadilly. Pours a dark orange-amber colour. Subtle and well balanced aroma. Warming malty flavours but light with a hoppy (for a marzen style) finish. My favourite of the Oktoberfest biers.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
BBD 05/15 (Original Oktoberfest version). Clear medium amber pour with just a touch of ruby. Exceptional head, lacing and retention. Light nose of biscuit with a touch of caramel and an almost imperceptible noble hop note. Almost medium bodied with a nice almost creamy texture. Above normal carbonation with a very good amount of effervescence on the finish. The exceptional flavor profile is superbly balanced, complex and very flavorful (intensity). It begins with an effervescent explosion of malt - mostly biscuit over a light caramel sweetness. In the middle, a light hop bitterness and noble hop flavor predominate. In the somewhat crisp finish as the bitterness fades, comes the final effervescent burst of lingering hop flavor. This one just edged Ayinger out as my favorite import.

Keg at Draft House. Dark yellow, pretty clear, highly sparkling, small foamy white head leaves speckled lacing. Aroma is sweet with syrup, horlicks and (mostly) liquorice notes. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation. The first thing I think about the taste is ’crisp’. Standard lager vibe with a touch of ash, tangy syrup, softly floral, maybe rhubarb. Decent.

0,5 hana@ OPP. Kirkas, meripihkan, hiukan punertavan ruskea. Tuoksussa makeaa mallasta, karamellia. Maussa keveyttä, todella maukasta mallasta! Varsin simppeli, mutta hyvää. Jättää mukavan maun suuhun.

Pours a dark clear amber with thick white head. Has a malt, caramel, hop and yeast aroma. A very malty and caramel taste with some wheat, light hops, and spices. A very strong body.
