3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quaffable German Oktoberfestbier. Poured a pale brown colour with a lasting moderate head. Gorgeous nose bursting with aromatic hops. Smelled fresh and inviting. Creamy palate and very smooth. Delicate malty body with hay-like hop notes. Marred by a slight chalkiness in the finish - sample may have been past its best. Otherwise excellent. (Bottle)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent and drinkable example of oktoberfest, but has a few rough lager edges. I liked the Hacker-Pschorr and the Paulaner versions better.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
malts without being sweet,and drinkable. Some bitterness in finish for aftertaste. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Light colour. Grassy herbal. Palate cleaner. Complements of Raymond at Abbey Brewing in Miami Beach, where they very suitably carbonate.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the best examples of Oktoberfestbier out there. Don’t pass this one up- creamy, slightly sweet and bitter. Great brew.

This is a very good lager. It good notes of aroma hops which isn’t very common in traditinal european lagers. More similar to czech beers than other german lager I have tried. My favourite german lager...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 500ml. Limpid gold body topped with a nice foamy head. Decent and well-balanced malty/hoppy aroma with flowery notes. Taste has some character and hides the alcohol pretty well. Not extraordinary, but quite drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found it thin and unvenetful, it has the required malt overtones. A clean brew but nothing special

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-orange color. Decent durable off-white head. Sweet, malty bready aroma. Flavor sweet and toasty, minimal hop contribution. Has some nutty flavors in the background. Overall a bit thin on the palate and flavors seem to fade quite quickly, but has a very clean refreshing finish. An average German Oktoberfest.

Bottled. A lemony grassy slightly sweet aroma to this light orange coloured beer. The taste is malty with a pleasant buttery smoothness. I liked this.
