3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Golden colour with a firm white head (disappears too quick). Malty, bready nose with a dry hoppy character and a hint of lemon/lime. Taste starts off with bread and a sweetish hint of butter scotch that emerges into a dry hoppy finish (a bit short though). Better than I remembered it, but not really exciting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color is almost reminiscent of a wheat beer. Ligth hoppy aroma. Taste of malts with some alcohol. The worst Octoberfest I’ve ever drank.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold appearance with a small white head. Vegatative aroma along with some maltiness. Bready, slightly sweet, modestly hopped taste. Well carbonated, light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Clean, crisp finish. More characteristics of a helles than an O’fest, except for the strenghth.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mid golden colour with a good head. Hoppy aroma and malt and alcohol in the taste. A little dryness. I didn’t feel very strongly about this one. It was drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
More golden than I think an Oktoberfest should be. Somewhat fruity aromatics and with an accompanying sweet taste with some blandness in the finish. Much too watery; I like an Oktoberfest to have a little bit of a chewey character to it. Not an excellent example of the style, but as Gorilla Monsoon used to say, "Everything serves a purpose, even if it’s being a bad example."

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Light blond with white head. Vegetal aroma of stewed hop, alcohol. Harsh and metallic in the mouth. Not the finest example of the brewer’s art.

For some reason I was not a big fan of this beer. I could taste the alcohol, and it felt really dry going down, too dry, at least compared to the other beers I consumed that evening.
