3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden colour, medium thin head which soon went but some lacing was retained, clear. Aroma was hay, straw, with notes of caramel and red cabbage. Tasted caramel and red cabbage, was quite peppery, finish was bitter and wheaty, seemed to switch between sweet and bitter but more bitterness than normal for an Oktoberfest beer. Was well carbonated, crisp and smooth enough. Easy to identify as an Oktoberfest beer, decent but not the best.

Smak och doft av malt, humle, jäst med toner av bröd och frukt. Liten beska och skör kropp.

Thanks Nikola for this! Familia, Jesolo. Dull golden body with a medium sized white head. Dust and soap in the malty aroma, hmm. Grainy malty taste, quite malty, dog food-like, vague herbal notes, dust. Humm, I wasn’t impressed, though I might rerate it.

From notes: Earthy, floral aroma / Flavors are also earthy, with some good sweetness. Also a nice touch of spice. Very pleasant.

Malty and fruity with aromas of crispbread and honey. Too plain and simple.

Didn’t like this at all. Not much aroma or flavor. Watery and a little boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Peckhams, Glasgow (500ml for £2.99):
Light with some floral notes, a few malts and a bit of spice for good measure. The aroma is almost like a glass of lemonade in parts and it smells pretty refreshing. There is a bit of skunky and some toasted malts too that follow this along with touches of citrus.
Light golden colour topped with a bubbly, thumb-sized white head that starts to fade after a few seconds. Clear and there is a tiny amount of lacing on the sides too.
Malty with some grain and a good helping of citrus and some floral hops. There is a malt biscuit taste and some sweetness with a few grains. Again this one tastes quite refreshing.
Light medium bodied, lively carbonation and a good, crisp finish to round things off. Quite refreshing most of the way through before turning quite dry right at the end.
Not a classic, or one I’m likely to have again for that matter but it was still a nice, easy drinking beer that I enjoyed despite it fading very slightly at the tail end.

Vollmundig im Antrunk! Malzig und würzig zugleich, gelungen!
Im Abgang zwar etwas laff, aber dafür umso süffiger geraten. Ein Bier für Freunde kräftiger Genüsse.

Bottle to glass pint. Pours a clear amber color with a decent off white head. I can’t describe the smell, but it’s not appealing to me. Flavor is very....not much. Maybe sweet skunky malt. Bleh.
