2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper colored beer with a thin, white head. Aromas of caramel and maple. Tastes of caramel, some butterscotch, woody/earthy notes, and a bit of maple syrup. All of these flavors are a bit muted. Nutty finish. Light bodied and easy to drink. An enjoyable session brew.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is disgusting in every way though it is actually fairly attractive in looks. Smells like a mildewy Midwest basement mixed with nasty yeast. Tastes like tap water with a bunch of dust. This is gross. Overall I cringe at the sight of it. Well, actually the sight of it is the only thing going for it.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours clear. crisp orange with thick white head. Smells citrusy, a bit like vomit, lagerish. Tastes like I’m drinking water out of a really nasty, dirty glass. Really bad. Like...really really bad. It’s quite disgusting. Definitely going down the drain. Next!

Mostly neutral smell, a little malty. Clear copper with a thin white head. Solid malt and caramel flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not pleased. Looks fine enough. Ends there. Aroma is weak and can only be described as slightly sweet. Taste wise its again weak. The traditional flavours are there but just so held back.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Carmel and malt aroma, a mild taste with not much to it... not my favorite style and not a great beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel malt with a bit of a light soapy note, some minimal hops. The flavor is rather thin and watery with a weak sweet caramel malt base. Rather grainy and a bit husky with very little bitterness. Light bodied and watery in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, just a bit too thin and sweet. Tastes like a ’cheap’ beer, bump up the malt on this one.

Ok flavor. Pour is a light amber with a thin white head that disappears quickly.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Pours a clear dark copper/amber color with a nice head initially that disappears quickly into a small ring of bubbles with spotty lacing that immediately slides down into the beer. Malty aroma of caramel, wheat, and biscuits. Taste is pretty the same as aroma but watered down. Good finish of hop bitterness and caramel malts that linger. Light bodied, watery thin texture, slightly higher than average carbonation. If they could boost the body and texture even slightly, it would be a world of improvement for this beer. One should never expect much from a Leinenekugel’s, Oktoberfest is certainly no exception. Drinkable, but nothing memorable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. I’m torn on how to rate this. As a beer it wasn’t bad. As an example of an Oktoberfest style it seemed way off the mark. It had a lager like flavor and consistency. Light and crisp with almost a rice malt taste.
