500ml bottle (BeerAngel) - stolen off Jarkko at work - thanks!
Rich reddy brown, healthy head. At first a slightly plasticky aroma, but as it warms the malts fill out, and it becomes quite grainy eventually. Pleasant carbonation, refreshing palate. Taste initially a bit metallic. As it warms, again, the softer malts come through and it’s a pleasantly husky graininess that you’re left with. Half a litre disappeared very quickly.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Clear, caramel brown appearance with an ivory head. Today, caramel, Munich malty, hay, noble hoppy aroma. Medium bodied, good carbonation. Caramel, Munich malty, slightly nutty, grassy hoppy flavor. Smooth, easy drinking but I prefer Paulaner’s offering better.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear lager. The color is the very definition of amber. Medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head. I really like this Oktoberfest!
An entire hive of clover honey in the aroma. Lightly perfumey and smokey as well.
Well-balanced, malty brew with notes of caramel and honey with whispers of citrus fruit.
Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (this beer is not served at Munich’s Oktoberfest !): Amber coloured, small off-white head, quickly vanishing; grainy, slightly malty nose with a nutty touch; faint, sweet malty start, mild bitter flavour, ending in a quite dry, bitter-malty finish with a metallic touch. Drinkable, but really not impressive !
