2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse bottled 08.27.08. Red color with a thin head that disappears almost immediately. Boring and faint grainy aroma with some subtle caramel notes. Very grainy taste with a nutty and leafy vibe going on. Some caramel and fruit notes as well. Medium bodied. Overall and very underwhelming oktoberfest.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
this just isnt a good beer. Amber pour. Metallic and malty aroma. Flavor is full of a weird tart metallic component that totally made me drain pour it. Nasty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. Dark amber appearance with an off white head. Toasty caramel malty, slightly nutty, toffee, lightly grassy-floral hoppy nose. Grassy, caramel, toffee malty lager flavor with some floral notes. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear copper lager with a small, tight, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. Toasted nuts and caramel nose. Caramel-sweet flavor with decent hop crispness and bitterness to keep things nearly balanced. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet; bordering on crisp.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper color with a medium thin beige head. Minimal lacing. There is a fair amount of sweet malt and caramel in the aroma. Medium bodied and it has a crisp side too. Sweet malt flavor dominates yet there is a faint sourness and bitterness every once in awhile. Kind of a Jekyll & Hyde thing. The finish is clean and sweet. Overall this is an average Marzen.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I lied in my last review when I stated I was finally done with Oktoberfests this season, somehow this bottle landed in my lap so I ought to review it.
Pours a lot more reddish than most Oktoberfests, with a big dirty white head.
Smell is typical but with a hint of toecheese. The smell is awful for an Oktoberfest
This is one freaky tasting Oktoberfest, hops are there but it is ultra fruity and metallic.
One of the worst Oktoberfests I have tasted.
