4oz on tap at the Lager House. Labeled explicitly on the menu as "Paulaner Octoberfest Weis’n" -- ABV listed as 5%. These guys do a lot of business with the distributor in question, so I suppose if any place in town is likely to have this beer, this place is more than others. Clear golden orange color.. Good thin off-white head, leaving good thicker lace. Very musty aroma... Bready, musty funky lageriness, touch of corn? Not very impressive, funky must is dominant. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter, and a kind of rough bite in the finish. Nope, not impressive. I’d have been very disappointed to have ordered a pint. Not too much different from macro lagers. A touch of burnt popcorn that I’m used to getting from super-stale NA macro lagers. Was the keg from 2014?

05.2014 best by date. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 10.27.13. Smooth, malty, and easy to drink. It was ok, but I wouldn’t seek it out again.

50cl bouteille. Première oktoberfest Bier. Correcte, agréable, mais sans plus. A comparer avec d’autres oktoberfest bier.

markschiedon (369) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
Drinking from a 0,5l bottle. A grainy, not so special aroma. The clear golden beer has a medium white head. The taste is a bit watery, but also spices are noticeable. Easy drinkable, full bodied. Medium carbonated.

500ml bottle. 07/15. Pours a bright, pale straw colour with a frothy, slightly off white head which refused to disappear and excellent lacing. Very gentle aroma of malt and only a hint of hops. Light sweetness and light bitterness. Very clean. Medium body, smooth texture and just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Not very complex but subtle, well made and a perilously drinkable brew at 6% abv. I wish I had another one of these, as it’s not a beer to be pondered and dissected, it’s a beer to be simply enjoyed.

Keg at the hanging bat as festbier, 5.8%. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head. Aromas of caramel, grassy hops, cooked vegetables. Taste is grassy, bread malt sweet. Crisp finish.

maus (44) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 27, 2014
Poured from bottle. Golden clear colour with a white head that dissipates fast. Aroma smells of earthy hops and ubiquitous lager simpleness. Taste is a bit on the bitter side for a pale lager, albeit nothing surprising. Decent lager, too harsh for a lawn-mower.

Bottle. Christmas Day. Poured a 2 finger head. Aroma of some malts, caramel, bread. Slight hops with caramel notes and biscuit, bread. Medium light bodied. Nice texture. Smooth but fulfilling finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
