3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a deep amber color with medium head. Lots of toasted German malt aroma. The palate is malty, but balanced well with flavorful Hallertauer hops. Smooth, crisp finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is very close to the Spaten. The only real differences are in the color of the body, which is a darker and more pleasing copper in the Paulaner, and the flavor, where the Spaten holds a slight edge due to the slightly sweeter nature of the malt. All in all, A great Oktoberfest.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper red brown. Fat head dribbling back down to rejoin the brew. Malt and hop smell. Thin head still hanging on. Somewhat watery body. malt and slight hops on the end. Low CO2.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bronze hued brew with medium head and fine, web-like lace...Aroma light but with malt, hops and yeast all in evidence...Flavor features a firm sweet malt bottom with a light spicy hop top-end...Carbonation is kept suitably light...This is well-balanced and smooth, with medium body appropriate for style. This is a bit mellower than some (such as the spicier Spaten) but is still flavorful and a very enjoyable reminder of the autumn season.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2006 Amber colored, beautful head and lace. Deep nose of caramel like makt, hops are evident...noble and hallertau’s? Almost creamy, medium bodied, toasted caramel flavor, nice hop spiciness, alcohol pokes through a bit which adds character IMO.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brownish color with good head and lace. Very strong malt smell that fought right through my allergies. Good caramel flavor. A little thinner than I’d like though.
