3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (LOT 16/07/08). Thanks oh6gdx. Deep clear amber color, small off-white head. Typical a bit caramelly, rye bready Märzen aroma. Quite caramelly malty, some bready and toasted notes. Suprisingly quite Vienna-like (and dunkler bock) flavor instead of Märzen. Sweetness covers alcohol, feels much less than 6 %. Less hops than in many American oktoberfestbiers.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 (10/25/06) Crystal clear copper body with small but creamy beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, cookie, some floral, light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, earthy, some caramel, medicinal. Light-medium body, some acidity. Better than the first time I tried it, but that’s not saying much. (6/3/4/3/9)
(11/16/02) Cloudy rusty copper body with a small tan head. Aroma is moderately caramel, as well as some toastiness. Taste begins sweet, but finishes intensely lemon sour. Not pleasant, though I wonder if it was mishandled, ’cause my description bears little resemblance to anyone else’s. (5/2/3/1/6)
