on draft @ my Charger party. A great beer for a big party that actually has flavor. Medium amber body with a creamy off white head. Everybody liked it.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Encinitas Oktoberfest. Nice white head with an amber hue. Minimal aromas but slight malt sweetness. Pleasant and thin on the palate. Not much depth of flavor or finish but pleasant for a warm beautiful sunny north county san diego day.

350 ml bottle from Bevmo. Clear golden amber with a fizzy white head. Wheat bread aroma with a very grainy and bready taste. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells of a regular imported pilsner. Actually reminds me of Heineken sans skunkiness. Appearance is of a blonde ale/lager. Flavor is the same. Easy to drink. It’s ok.

12oz bottle. Clear golden color with no head. Aroma of sweet malts and maybe cereal too. Flavor is like the aroma with a bit of sweet malts and corn flakes. Some noble like hops round out the flavor.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Sweet maltiness, but very thin. Metallic up front, but the bread and spice take over. Watery and plain.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy straw-colored body with suspended yeast sediment; thin off-white head. Toasty aroma with caramel and light hints of butterscotch. Cerealy, toasty body with plenty of grassy hops, tart at the front and finishing with an earthy bitterness. Thin-bodied. A bit too much sharp acidity to be called quaffable. Thanks fordest for the bottle!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Decent head on this golden pour. Aromas were some lemon and malt. Flavors were mostly malty with some hops in the finish, but not a lot. Not a bad Oktoberfest beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a nice off-white head. Low spice/noble hop/malt aroma. Lighter bodied. Not as much malt nor as dark as a typical octoberfest. Clean - some malt, and some spice flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium golden color. Aroma is yeasty and somewhat malty. Tastes very much like a hefeweizen. Flavor consists of grains, yeast, malt and some spice. This has probably been sitting around for a good 6-7 months but I think it’s pretty good.
