Stein at Weissgerber’s Gasthaus just outside Milwaukee. Dark amber with a small head that seems to continue through the 22 ounces. The aroma is mostly malt based. The flavor is malty, sweet, and a touch sour. The palate suited well, somewhat rich and cleansing. Overall, this was good with Thanksgiving meal.

I may be wrong but I think the keg might be stale but all I tasted was sour with a hint of caramel.

Copper, white head leaves nice lace. Dry malty aroma. Flavor has plenty of crispiness in terms of hops, well balanced oktoberfest brew. Carbonated feel, finish asks for more.

Malt hop aroma somewhat light biscuty taste,with just a touch of sweetness and noble hop finish ,serviceable Oktoberfest brew,which no doubt tastes better in Munich

Pours a clear brownish-copper with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet, mildty malty and a bit grassy. Taste is grassy then some caramel malt,a bit fruity fruity with a floral finish. Nice balance but somewhat thin for a Oktoberfest.

1L draft at Spaten’s 2007 Oktoberfest tent in Munich. Lighter golden color and less intense carbonation than other breweries’ Helles offerings that I had at Oktoberfest. Nonetheless, still a wonderful beer!! Bit lighter body and lighter malt body than I had expected – the same would be true of the hop complexity that I had expected.
