3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Barely chilled. Like the label. Little hazy,pale looking lager. Excellent head,with droopy lacing. Subdued but present aroma of noble hops,yeast and grain. Body is a little lite,somewhat fizzy but for the style,pretty good. Upfront grassy flavors. The malt and yeast are mainly all that follows. The malts come off as bit more sweet than expected with aroma but still don’t show much. The finish has some grassy hop notes and yeast.Finish also picks up some dry grainy flavors as it warms up a bit. This is a decent Ofest it’s got a clean malt and hop taste,with a good yeast,but there are many I would rather drink. Little dissapointed as I do like me some German lagers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a one finger, white head. Aroma has notes of grain, pilsner malt it smells like, and some slight fruityness. Taste is balanced. Grain, traditional German hops, and some pilsner mixed in. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a bit of a dry finish. Overall pretty traditional but that’s what I’d expect.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear yellow body with a fluffy, well-lasting head. Nose has sweet malty, hoppy and herbal aromas. Taste is sweet with a warming spice character and mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is on the lively side and the mouthfeel is quite rich. A nice rich easy-drinking beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
In a 1 liter HB stein/mug from First St Alehouse during Octoberfest. Pours dark gold with a white head that lingers (yes, the stein has space for the head). Not much smell (ok) but tastes of light bread, yeast, little hops, some sweetness on the malt. Nothing bad but nothing great about this one. More carbonated than most but very drinkable. And yes, I bought the stein for full of 1L of beer for $15 on "pint night".

Had a cup at Germantown OK to be rest. Good flavor but way too carbonated. Still not a fan of this polka music.

Itt a szeptember és így itt az oktoberfestbierek ideje, eme gyengéd egyeddel nyitottam a sörsort, bemelegítésképpen mindenképp hangulatteremtő volt.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear golden with a big creamy stable white head. Aroma of creamy malts, light cardboard.Taste is moderate sweet, white sugars with a light dry bitter honeyish finish, bordering cloying, too much sweetness for my likings.
