2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a really weak oktoberfest. Pours an orange color with a medium to small sized fluffy head that is gone within minuts. Nose is lager like and smells of wheat and a bit of nuts. Taste is very watery and plain. A bit of malt but nothing else really.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This rating concludes the latest round of Leinie’s torture I have put myself through. I have had worst Ofests, but not many. Flat, cardboardy, spoilt caramel sweetness, with a sour, grainy finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours light amber with a two finger head that fades fast and a light caramel malt aroma. It has decent caramel malt flavor and is a pretty light, smooth beer. It’s not bad, but then again there are certainly better Oktoberfests out there.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2011 Clear, copper with a quickly disappearing head. Grain, caramel, and sour mash aroma. Zesty hops and mild sour fruit flavour. Mild dry-hop finish.

Not a huge Marzen style fan but it was a pretty good representation of the style. Taste is slightly sweet with a pleasant smoothness throughout. Not bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a pleasing copper color with a light tan head, but the taste is quite nondescript. It does have a light, crisp finish that makes me think it could be consumed in large quantities if taste or complexity aren’t really concerns.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smooth pour with so/so head. Has a light scent. Have to search for the flavor which can take a little away, and there is not much finish. For the price here, this is an OK brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. Bottle, pours a dark gold with some red, off-white bubbles that thin to a ring, some bubbles in the brew,
aromas of malt, sweetness and some bread, little roasted malt, taste of malt with some sweetness, not as much sweet as the nose let on to,
sweetness subsides to some bitterness on the tongue, a little thin on the palate, maybe over carbonated,
after a few drinks the taste appeared to be weak, could use more malt flavor, finish was kind of dry with a small bite and the carbonation left tingles
on the tongue, nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light copper with an off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, dough, and some fruits. Medium body. Flavor is similar to the aroma with some added speices. Not much of a finish. Better than a pale lager, but nothing exciting here.
