Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Poured pale copper with barely any head. Spots of lace. The aroma was lots of malt, spice and metal. The flavor was sweet malts, a touch of yeast and some spice. A touch of metal snuck through. Thin and easy drinking.

kaserov (226) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 26, 2016
Color cobre, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Aroma a grano, maltoso, algo floral y fresco. Sabor a malta con toques lejanos de malta tostada, dulce, con algo de amargor final procedente del lúpulo para redondear el trago. No esperaba tanto de este estilo de cerveza.

Huge disclaimer: I really don’t know how to judge "Aroma" in decimals, since my mind processes only binary code ("Mmmm....smells like delicious, delicious beer..." or "Hrm....hope it at least *tastes* like beer"...) Neither can I accurately adjudge the appearance, frequently, since I am a) wholly, happily ignorant of what color various styles are "supposed" to be and b) I don’t care at all if a style looks improper and because c) I am frequently guzzling straight from the bottle like a freaking Visigoth so d) I don’t always know what the actual color of the beer is. That being said... I cracked this Hacker-Pschorr "Original Oktoberfest" (aliased, apparently from the "Oktoberfest-Marzen). It turned out to be very far away from the decent but unremarkable mass-produced German beer it appeared to be. It is full-mouthed, malty, non-hoppy, slightly sweet, notes of ochre and hominy. This stuff is well-made and it won’t make you sorry you drank it.
