4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I live by the Ramstein Brewery, and have always been impressed by the care that goes into their beers. Although I am not a big wheat beer fan which is their specialty.
I had a seasonal sampler at the Office Bar in Morristown, and the Ramstein Octoberfest was one of the beers. Simply put it ’blew the competition away" including Sam Adams Winter and Climax Octoberfest.
This is the best Octoberfest beer I have had, import included. Clean crisp, malty it was just an exceptional lager.
I had a few more before I left the bar that night thinking I would stop by the brewery for a growler or two the next day, but they were sold out. Guess I am not the only one impressed.

Pours a nice amber with a beige head. Goes down very smooth with a subtle malt backbone that I would expect from an Oktoberfest.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Office. Amber hue, lasting white head, much lacing. Aroma of citrusy, piney hops and sweet malt. Perfect balance of bready malt and piney, earthy hops on the palate. Some toffee notes as well. Light, smooth body. Finish is short, but nicely balanced between hop bitterness and sweetness of the malt. Well made, easy drinking Octoberfest.
