2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with a layer of whitish head. Aroma is slightly malty but mostly yeast esters. Taste is sweet and malty. You can definitely get the caramel malts in the aroma and the taste. There are some slightly stale off flavors but they are ultimately overshadowed by the caramel malts. One of the better Leinenkugel’s I have had. A nice break from all their fruity beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Greg, who has spent time in Germany, and says this is pretty close to what you might get there. Pretty dry for the style, with a little molasses flavor, and some sweetness in the aroma. Nice, and underrated imo.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Palate is surprisingly good; everything else is below average. It's not a rule that every brewery has to make an Oktoberfest. Hard style to pull off, I dislike many more of them than I like.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft: Pours orange with a light tan head....that’s about all there is to say about this beer. It’s boring...it’s bland... it’s not an Oktoberfest.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle. This beer is barely an Oktoberfest. It’s all there, but in very small doses.

Ok smell and look, nothing to make it great can tell it is made for the masses before tasting it even, like the feel but lacks the flavor

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from my neighbor Jim. An American styled Marzen that falls short of par. Less smooth and overly carbonated with uncharacteristic bitterness.

Arômes de céréales et de cassonade. Un peu d?amertume avec une pointe de sucre. Texture légèrement veloutée. Maltée, céréalière, faiblement caramelisée.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with white head that dissapattes quickly. Lightly sweet malt aroma. Flavor up from buiscut malt. Clean as it should he but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. screw top bottle. Pours a medium, lasting, dark ivory head, with minimal lacing, over a clear dark amber (SRM 14) body......nose is light toasted malts, no hops or esters......taste is slightly sweet, with toasted malts, no esters, minimal hops on the finish....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a very nondescript beer. It has color, fizz, and absolutely no personality. BJCP5/3/10/4/5
