3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Cincinnati’s First Craft Beer Only Oktoberfest on October 6, 2012. Medium copper/amber hue, nice firm sweet malty aroma, sweet toasted malt taste accompanied by a macro-like bitterness, Disappointing but I’m grading this leniently due to how cold the beer was served and how cold it was at this outdoor festival (not complaining about the event, just stating a fact). IMO, the better lager styles are best if they aren’t served too cold. I hope to try this again next fall inside at Listermann.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Listermann’s Oktoberfest. Pours a clear, slightly orange hued gold color with a small, soft white head. A little light in color for the style. Notes of sweet malts, crackers, toasted sugar, a little bit of leafy and fruity hops, and dry, husky grains. Light-bodied, with soft carbonation and a bready mouthfeel that has some subtle underlying bitterness. Not bad; an easy drinking festival beer.

Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate aroma of toasted malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations
