2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold, small white head. Sweet vegetable malt aroma. I caught tomato initially. Taste has yeast and grainy malt, very restrained and slightly creamy. Slight bitterness. I’m struggling to find bad (or good) things to say about this beer. Tomorrow I will have forgotten it.

Bottled. pale golden in color, minor white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. The flavour is swwt and has a mild and appealing taste. Like a promise of the summer to come (after winter).

Klassiker - med en del maltsødme, let humle, lidt karamel. Let drikkelig - men ikke ringe...

This is the standard for Oktoberfest Bier. Excellent color, very true to the style. Flavor is unmatched in festbiers. As others have said below, it is the best mass at Oktoberfest.

500ml bottle on couch at home. Bouquet of honey and grass. golden appearance with a white, not to stable, lacy head. it#s "herb" , but very refreshing and very very drinkable for a strong, as it should be, beer. round tasting, very well balanced stuff.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty uninteresting overall, some aromatic notes of almond essence and alchohol along with grain, good for thirst quinching, thats it for me.

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.
