Bottle, 500ml. A clear pale yellow colour with a small white head. Aromas of sweet orange and a little hoppiness. Taste is sweet caramel, lightly hoppy and malty with some roasted notes. A little citrus in the finish. Moderate carbonation. This is well balanced and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange-yellow with a decent white head. Creamy aroma of cooked grain with a bit of nuttiness coming through on tasting. Flavour is a bit on the sweet side, although there is some bitterness. Medium bodied with a nice even carbonation, but the aftertaste is a bit twangy. Drinkable, but half a litre is a bit of a struggle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Bavarian Bier Cafe is celebrating this festival and so we can get this on draught for a month. $9 gets me a half litre of a pale gold beer with good froth, quite malty on the nose and soft on the palate. Low in hops as expected but pleasant enough in its malty and bready overtones and mouthfilling body.

From the land of Oktoberfest’s here comes a tradition. Nothing great going on here. See Lowenbrau plus a little something. Alcohol comes out a little more than wanted, but not as much as the Hacker-Pschorr. Golden color with fast fading head. Nice offering for the season. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a small fizzy white head. Nose is malty and sweet with buttered biscuit notes and soft grassy hops. Taste is a bit more bitter with Euro hops coming through, bready malts, soft grass, light buttery notes and soft lemon tea. Body is light-medium with mild carbonation feel and surprisingly dry end to it. Finishes with more sweet and bready malts, light buttery biscuit flavors, light grassy hops and hop bitterness. Nice Oktoberfest!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shimmering golden body with a head that fizzes out after a couple of swigs. Mineral water clarity. Sweet malty nose with a waft of skunky hops. Creamily malty with some moreishly crisp bready notes. A refreshing parting bitterness. And a wickedly well-concealed hit of alcohol. Could happily tip a few of these down my neck, but would surely regret it later.
