3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
i will attempt to independently give the same observations about this beer as the other 72 of you, just so my opinion on the beer’s merit has some credibility: rich, dark gold colour. nice decocted malt smell. flavour is nutty/toffee, dried out at the finish by alcohol instead of bitterness. pretty low intensity but good quality straightforward vienna/munich malt character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of bready malt, cereal and biscuits with some herbal aromas from the hops. The body is rich, full and a little sweet, but not overbearing. Loads of melanoidins i think. Goes down easy with a slight bitter and dry finish. Quite good, but i’d like it a little lighter maybe. It’s a tad too strong with too little flavor to balance out the alcohol content in my opinion. Still a decent beer though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear pale golden hue with a one finger white head. Malt heavy aromas with honey, light grassy notes, and a faint smell that reminds me of squash. Sweet, with grassy/straw-like malt notes, caramel, honey, and very light hopping that leads into light metallic notes, and woody/dusty malt notes with a little bit of a mineral flavour in the finish. The flavour profile is good, but this is most definitely too sweet. I’m not a huge fan of the style to begin with though. Half the bottle is more than enough for me.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours a pale yellow. Aroma is caramel malts, hay, and citrus. flavor is not as sweet as i am use to in a Marzen. Lightly bitter and metallic. Finishes dry. Not to great in my opinion. Maybe im just partial to the American Oktoberfest.
