Can at home while preparing dinner after hella stress filled day. Copper pour fine head. Nose is toasted malt and earth. Tastes of malt, wheat, other grains, fresh hay, earthy. Clean smooth palate. I’m a sucker for oktoberfests and this is a good one.

16oz can. Pours copper with a large, foamy white head. Dull, metallic aroma of caramel malt with some yeast notes. Taste is sweet malt initially with a lightly yeasty, mildly bitter hop finish. The yeast lingers a bit. Medium-bodied with a solid, creamy yet crisp mouthfeel. Relatively low carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice clear coppery, golden color with frothy white head. Picking up mostly malts on the aroma with some earthy hops. Taste is crisp and clear, but has a bit of a creamy vanilla taste too it. Not a bad Oktoberfest.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from One Stop Market, Haverhill, MA. Aroma is light bread, mild fruitiness, mild yeast. Appearance is clear golden yellow with nice sparkle, finger-width creamy white head with good persistence. Taste is mild Munich malt sweetness, noble hop bitter, light yeast. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with average texture and lively carbonation, lightly bitter finish. Overall, not a terribly bold Octoberfest beer but decent.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle bought at The Bottle Shop in Sai Kung.
Looks: Translucent orange honey colour; One finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 1 minute. Excellent sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet full malt, with strong honey, floral nectar, caramel, toffee, bread, yeast, citron tea and thin grass.
Taste: Strong sweet malt, with caramel, floral, strong honey, strong molasses, thick bread, yeast, moderate lemon, light bitter hops and light grass.
Body: Clos eot medium. Slick and smooth palate.
Mouth Feel: Rich maltyness in a solid and fairly creamy caramel background. Lots of good floral honey sweetness you don’t find cloying nor getting tired of, soaked with light lemon and good breadyness. Excellent!
Hoppiness: Floral nectar, citron tea and thin grass in nose. Floral, moderate lemon and light grass in taste. Bitterness is fairly light for an abrupt, light astringent sweet malty finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Nice sweet and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one’s aroma and taste is so similar to Neuschwansteiner Edelmärzen - Solid maltyness with strong and likeable floral and honey elements in aroma and taste and just enough hops for a relaxng experience. The only difference is that this cost a lot less for easy enjoyment. Will buy again for sure. Lovely!
