2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an amber body, with an off white head that dissapates quickly. Aromas of rich spices and roasty malts. Taste had some roasted malt character with some clove undertones. Not bad, average at best for the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The Dan journal #49. Tasted 10/22/06. 12oz bottle. Clear and amber. Spiral white head. Bready vegetal spicy nose. Notes of vanilla and caramel. Light to medium bodied. Palate hits sweet then dulled malts. Bright bitter finish that ebbes out into a sticky aftertaste. Abrasive and not very smooth transitions. Meh...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A poor example of this style, which is hard to do. Fairly light caramel aroma and taste. Not overly sweet but than again neither is water. Pass.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated 9/11/06: Lousy marzen presented by a usually decent brewer. Aroma is non-existent, appearance is good with a nice bronze color and small creamy head. average feel here with a weak finish. Flavor is decent for a standard lager but falls fairly short for an oktoberfest. I have a sneaking suspicion that Leinenkugel’s may be falling to the wayward hands of their owner, I only hope their other brews aren’t being compromised by cheap ingredients.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straight from the bottle. It pours a medium amber color, small head that dropped fast. Aroma is nearly absent. A hint of alcohol and corn. Taste of semi-sweet malt and barely any hops. Very watery finish with a clean aftertaste. This is more of a "Light Oktoberfest" at best. Not what I expected from an Oktoberfest.

A good American Oktoberfest. Light but flavourfull. Well priced and worth a try.

An American "Oktoberfest" that actually vaguely tastes German. Not quite Spaten but a lot cheaper. Keep it coming, Jake L.!

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the bottle at the HyVee Oktoberfest beer tasting in Council Bluffs. Smells like sauerkraut. Caramel color. Bland in the flavor department.
