2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Brew Wharf at London Bridge (London), a very carbonated pale yellow with a filmy white head. A subtle vinuous and wheat aroma with some fruit. Flavours are very corn-like, very clean palate though. I expect (hope) better in its home country.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2007 (Draught at The Rover, Göteborg) Pours light golden. Malty, herb-ish aroma. Clean and light nose with hints of lemon. Clean light body with herb-ish hops. Small bitterness but ok malt character.
(Second try, bottle) Sweet and rich malt up front in the aroma with hints of bread, toast and honey. Light perfume like hops with tones of herbs and soft floral tones. A touch of dough in the background. Good, creamy malt flavour with the hops in the background. Some Light bitter herbs, lemon and hints of grass and flowers. Soft and round mouthfeel. Light crisp and light doughy. Medium bodied. Nice with a good, friendly balance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was the first liter of Oktoberfest beer that I had in Munich last year. SInce then it has been one big beer fest. I tried this again recently from bottles. I love this style and this time of year. It has a huge malty, roasted sweetness. It seems a little more amber than I remember. The alcohol is apparent and pleasent. Very good tasting beer that should be consumed by the litre.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a killer-Oktoberfest bier. Designed to be consumed in large quantities at the oktober-fest in Munich this one hits the spot dead-on. Aroma is pretty ordinary as well as the appearance. The flavour is rather malty with a superb bitterness in the aftertaste, which makes you yearn for another sip. Prost!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Colour is golden with a firm white head. Nose is malty and bready with a clean cereal aroma and fresh aroma of grassy hops, hints of citrus. Same goes for the taste: malty, with notes of tropical fruit and citrus. Grassy hops in the clean and fresh finish. Medium body, medium bitterness, well balanced sweetness. Nice and fresh, although a bit clinical.
