2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2009 Bottle. Poured clear golden light brown in color with a small white head and nice lacing. The aroma was that of bready and sweet malts with light odor of hops. It tasted mild of grainy malts with a light hop flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy but a little light bodied. Overall an average brew, but not a great representation of its class.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Katrina. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve had Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest. Aroma leaves something more to be desired. Taste is a good, solid oktoberfest! Decent brew.

Bottle at San Juan. Clear copper color, small beige head. Light bready aroma. Light-bodied. Watery palate. Light bread and caramel in the flavor. Very easy Märzen. Low bitterness too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a sweet smell mixed in with the grain.
Appearance- this is an amber colored beer with a moderate white head.
Taste- Grain and malt, not bad but sort of run-of-the-mill.
Palate- Light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Has a dry mouth feel.
Overall- This is pretty good, not the best Leinnie’s has produced but not bad.

12 oz bottle. Not much of a party in here. Plain vanilla all around. Rather unremarkable.

While it is a rather light tasting beer and not close to one of the better Oktoberfest beers, it does have a nice malt forward flavor and a bit of sweetness. Easy drinking but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is a very sweet malt. Taste follows exactly the same. Overall too unbalanced with the sweetness.

Pours lighter gold/tan than expected for the style. Aroma is slightly off, a mix of some malt and a little skunky. I’d think I got a bad batch if other reviews weren’t also quite low. Taste is boring, feel is overcarbonated.

A solid base hit. Pours a nice copper with a lingering off white head. Aromas of: caramel, grass, and dough. Fairly balanced flavor profile with a nod to the sour. Nice palate with a little stickiness. Sessionable.
