3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
APPEARANCE- looks like a true style Oktoberfest, like a marzen should. Better head than mor beers ive drinken at Munich’s octonerfest (an interesting note for my followers, my profile pic on RB is a selfie from the Haufbrau tent in 2014).
NOSE- very little of anything in the nose.
FLAVOR- very light flavor. Probably good for drinking large quantities at the event, bit if I want a beer that has some character, this isn’t it.

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour with a medium white head, surprisingly hoppy aroma with spicy, floral, almost perfumed notes but also some hints of chocolate and toffee, taste is more malty and a bit roasty with a nice dry finish and also some booziness, creamy mouthfeel. Nice one!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy ripened peach colour, good and long lasting head of foam.
I get fruity and bready notes in the smell. Kinda sweet but kinda not.
Bready in the taste but dominated over by some kind of stone pitted fruit. I can’t quite pull out what it is but it’s distracting.
Code on the label: 41517060. ? 41st day of 2015?
Not worthy of a future visit.
