3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Draft. Pours very well, with a foamy German type head. Has a nice roasted malt aspect to it, which actually calls to mind a well-made Vienna lager. In other words, this is a pretty okay beer. The texture and mouthfeel come across like a standard American "dark beer," which can get in the way of one's enjoyment.
2004 rating: Color is light as a Hamm's these days, which can also detract. They keep making them lighter in germany to match the lowest common denominator in drinker preferences...

If there is the prefect beer this is it. It starts with the golden color and a great sweet hoppy aroma. Before you taste it you are in love. Then the taste hits you It is perfect smooth, flavorful and sweet yet bitter. Everytime I drink it I can't help but think it is perfect My first ( and I would guess) only 5.0 rating. You have to taste this beer.

Mini keg. Pours golden clear with a foamy white head. Aroma is of malt and spice. Not much to the aroma at all. Taste is of malt, spice, and bread. Lacking in the flavor department. Lingering malty taste. Mouthfeel is light, bordering on watery. Body is light. Not much in the aroma or taste, but it goes down easy.

In line with the paler oktoberfest german. Slightly toasty but still drinks like a helles with the pale malt. Slightly sweet but overall balanced at the end. Easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dorada, limpia y clara. Espuma notable, blanca. Aroma malteado, algo cítrico. Cuerpo medio, carbonatación media alta. Sabor emitentemente cereal, maíz incluso, pero contrarrestado por un tono lupulado bastante amargo al final, seco y especiado. Calor alcohólico que envuelve todo. No acaba de redondear.
