2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle@Home. Faint grainy aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, good lace. Sweet, grainy, light bitter, little sticky and soft mouthfeel. This is too clean and too boring.

Ein kraftvolles Bier mit leckerem Malz-Hopfen-Einschlag. Der Alk.-Gehalt ist nicht ansatzweise heraus zu schmecken. Die Süffigkeit für diesen Stoff ist phänomenal!

Color is a dark golden-honey, and has a velvety head. Not much aroma to speak of beyond simple hops and malts. Flavor is a nice blend of hops and malts with a hint of caramel with a mellow finish.

Bottle. Yellow with white head. Hay as for the other oktoberfest beers. Some sweet and low on hops. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2008 Straw coloured, head nearly disappears but leaves a little lacing. Feint aroma of soft grain and perhaps a touch of grassy hops.
The flavour is soft and smooth grains, light although quite full on the palate. Still, I found it monotonous, one dimensional and boring.
Re-Rate: For I found interesting bubblegum notes in it. Not that it turned my opinion around but it warranted raising Fl and Oa by 1 each to 5 and 9 respectively.

A dark golden beer with a white head. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Taste is malty and sweety, notes of hops. Very well balanced. Drinkable but tasteful.

Just a really sweet, malty brew. Very clean and very drinkable. Nothing to get too excited about, but would be pretty nice during those Oktoberfest days.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
.5 liter brown bottle. Pours a pretty amber/gold, not a lot of carbonation or head. Lots of malt in the aroma, a little caramel.
Medium body with a rich German malt flavor. There is a little bit of noble hop bitterness. Nice Oktoberfest. Very drinkable, a great beer with spicy food.
