2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average for an Oktoberfest. Less full bodied than other (better made) Oktoberfests, but there is an appeal to this one- lying mostly in the fact that it’s actually made in Germany and sports a cool German label.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Golden body, with a small white head that leaves a fair lace. Faint malty aroma, along with a faint malty taste, no bitterness. Watery texture, thin body, nice carbonation level. Not very tasty, but dangerously drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Crystal clear golden body with a short and thin white head.
Aroma: Shows off hops and Pilsener malt, slightly sweet lemon and hints of floral perfume.
Taste: Crisp and balanced mildly sweet malts with gummy lemon hops, semi-dry finish with slight floral notes.
Palate: Crisp and refreshing.
Overall: Not sure how true to style this is, but it’s very nice to drink, crisp and refreshing. Reminds me more of a pilsener than an Marzen.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: September 20, 2014... GLASSWARE: Saranac willbecker...OCCASION: PSU/UMass--a Mass-acre to be?... APPEARANCE: hazy golden yellow body akin to a pilsener; steady upward bubbles; quite light for a fest; pale white head laces in tongues... AROMA: highly hopped in Saaz, apparently; besides the ping, some floral hops and grassy notes; not the fest expected... PALATE: active, vibrant and commanding--the aftertaste lingers with sweetness.....TASTE: sweet as a corn and biscuit combo can be; malty to the taste buds, but not as round as it is metallic to the nostrils; some wheat grass ...OVERALL: as Oktoberfests go, a surprise--much lighter and less malty than expected in its finish; perhaps drinking too many American fests has misled my expectations; still, balanced and worthwhile....
