White thick full lasting head. Bright golden color. Aroma is hoppy with herbal and grainy notes. Flavor is hoppy too with herbal tones, ending in a more balanced, slightly grainy and sweet finish. Light bodied.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 A sweet flavour reminiscent of Löwenbräu's Oktoberfest beer. I like it better though. And it looks good, too. The first taste is always the best.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear golden copper with low carbonation and a loose head. Toasted malt and cookie aroma with notes of pepper and nutmeg. Flavor of water, malt, fruit, metal, and spice. Feel is a bit flaccid. Somewhat boring and disappointing.

It's that time of year again, and I feel compelled to drink this type of beer. The style, in general, is not that good. This and Spaten are my favorites. A bit watery with some sweetness. Drinkable, but gets kind of old and boring quick.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light, shiny golden color. Quickly disappearing head. Not much of aroma, maybe some yeast. Has a spicy finish, but feels watery and not very interesting.

Golden color, white rather thin head. Aroma is not very strong, but has som yeast in it. Sweet at first and then turns in to pepper. Rather easy to drink, but a little watery.

Had at O'fest event with Ayinger, Hacker, Spaten, Ramstein, etc. and Ramstein won. This was good and malty without much in the way of bitterness. Still a top notch beer.

One of the better Oktoberfests I've had this year. A hint of sweet flavor seperates this from many other Oktoberfests.
