This is a typical lager that I can get into, otherwise I find lagers pretty yucky... pours a deep amber with a small head, smell of candied, rotten, sour fruits... easy drinking and mildly sweet... I could get into these kind of lagers.

Looks a little tired... Pale golden coulour with a head that disappeared way too quickly. The taste is rather sweet and malty and goes well with pork and sauerkraut as a beer like this should. Overall not as good as I remembered it from previous years.

3:rd of 4 different oktoberfest beer in a sampling. A litle more colour than the previous oktoberfest beers. Small aroma of malt. God bitterness and some maltiness.

My first octoberfest of the season. Just a run of the mill octoberfest. Rather weak hops and malts though. Decent honey aroma. Quaffable

Bottle, light amber color with a fizzy white head. Aroma has some malts, spices and
grass. Carbonation is pretty standard, not too offensive. Aftertaste is quite nice malty almost caremel like finish. But overall this feels abit watery.

On tap at Stone 12th. Light amber color with a light, sweet scent. Lots of flavor in a light, happy way. It’s clean and fruity in the mouth. I could have sat down with a few of these had I been given the opportunity.

Bottled 50cl. Extremely well balanced and pleasant. Sweet malty with notes of gooseberries in both nose and taste. Bitter finish. Great!
