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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is mild, taste is strong citrus/grapefruit with a fizzy, smoky finish. Does not taste much like an Oktoberfest but it is quite refreshing and drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This lager poured a dark orange colour with a short lived foamy off white head. To the nose I found scents of sweet malt, caramel and dough. First taste was a little watery but could taste a little hop and malt. Not much more, maybe a little spice??? The finish was thin and a slight bit bitter, nothing to write home about.

Slightly spicy aroma and flavor. Well balanced. A bit too light as is the case with all Leinenkugels.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color. Smell of malt, hops, grains, burnt leaves and minor caramel. Taste of caramel, roasted peanuts, malt, hops and spice. Its like a light version of an Oktoberfest. Still a good beer.

12oz bottle. pours clear copper with small white head. nose is sweet malty and grainy and corn. flavor is pretty grainy with slight toasted malt to it but the carbonation is really spritzy. it actually doesn’t have a bad flavor it’s just really watery and fizzy mouth feel. pretty adjuncty but a nice replacement for BMC.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a tailgate party for the Illinois vs Wisconsin football game. Pours amber with a white head. Very weak aroma of munich malts. Medium to light bodied with a fizzy texture . Flavor of caramel, bread, and citrus. However, the carbonation really overpowers the rather boring malt profile. A poor example of the style, macro like.

33 cl bottle, Fargo. Light amber colour, foamy head. Malty soapy smell, slightly off taste, there are much better Oktoberfest styles out there.
