2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty sweet and toffeeish, a bit paler than I’d like to see. Almost one-dimensionally sweet - not as much depth as their maibock. Still, an above average full flavored Oktoberfest.

Initially very mellow with good malt taste, but the aftertaste is alcoholic and slightly rough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a clear pale gold with a thin white head. Rich malty aroma. Taste is bready, sweet, thin, and a bit of fruit. Drinkable but not remarkable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Mark’s place (from notes). Aroma is earthy and a bit vegetal / Mid palate is very well integrated / Final has a subtle bitterness. Good stuff

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is very light. No head, pale yellow. Taste has a bit of zest, but overall not too interesting. Watery.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with a minimal bit of head. Aroma of skunk, some herbal hops and a little bready yeast. Taste of citrus and floral hops, honey and bread. Medium bodied with a somewhat slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, pretty good. I"m suprised how good it tastes compared to the aroma.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330ml bottle on 4/1/2013. Pours a crystal cleat, bright golden with as medium head. Has modest grassy aroma with a hint of citrus. In the mouth, it’s very sweet, with some surprising pear and apricot notes, and lots bready malt. Finishes with a nice, medium herbal hop bitterness. Enjoyed this one more than I expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle, 6.3%, 1.25€. Intense gold color, crystal clear with a big white head. Nose is quiet, a hint of hops. Aroma is full of bready malts, a spicy tone and grassy hops. A soft bitternes, still being slightly sweet. Finish is malty, but fairly dry. Tasty! Almost full-bodied for the style, proper carbonation. A classic oktoberfest bier.

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.
