3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a decent, white head. Very soft mouthfeel, but otherwise this is all malt - lovely, sweet malt with only a moderate bitterness. A wee hint of metal. But overall a very pleasant brew. 100600

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Light golden coloured, thin fluffy layer; shy malty nose, traces of fruitiness (citrus), traces of cardboard too; sweetish start, fruity (honey) malty taste, sweetish flavour, some very light bitterness in the short finish. O.K., but not overwhelming at all.......

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear brownish-copper with a light tan 1/4 inch head. Lots of fine lacing. Smells sweet and lighlty malty. A bit grassy like fresh hay and lightly sour. Taste is grassy up front followed by caramel malt. Fruity with a floral hoppy finish. Mouth is a good balance. Lightly crisp and lightly malty. It’s not bad and damn drinkable. Really smooth and satisfying even though it is not an outstanding Oktoberfest. A solid choice for a session brew this season.

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.

One of the best examples of Oktoberfestbier out there. Don’t pass this one up- creamy, slightly sweet and bitter. Great brew.
