3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2007 bottles from Costco -- Green glass, but inside cardboard container, so no light issues. This beer has the expected qualities of an Oktoberfest: big and relatively complex malt flavors (bread, Munich malt fruit), full body, and wonderful color. The main detractor was the significant sulfur component that made the aroma undesirable and slightly vegetal-like. Sulfur is not uncommon in lagers, but it still detracts. Overall, a good beer and not too disappointing.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head, short duration and moderate lacing. Aroma has notes of cereal, hay and malts. Flavor is moderate malty, grassy notes, moderate hoppy, slightly bready. The final is slightly bittery with light sweet notes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, gift from my mother. Golden colored, medium to small head. Hoppy "German" nose, somewhat soapy. Hopbitter flavor, some malts, quite thin mouthfeel. OK, but not overly impressive.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soapy and fluffy. Golden colour and low carbonation. Nothing to make it stand out but a clean unobjectionable quaffer with a high ABV kick.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught, small creamy head,clear light gold colour, light malty, herbal, yeasty aroma, sweet honey candy flavour with a medium bitterness, the sweetness is too strong and overpowering making the bitterness feel unpleasnt. Much too sweet and not too exciting.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with beautiful crown. Rich malt aroma with lots of grass and hay. Elegant, still malty taste. Lots of bread notes and also nuts in the aftertaste. Some burnt notes and low-medium bitterness rounds off this oktoberfestbier perfectly.

Some background malts and hops.. Bit grainy and spicy.. again pale standard brew. No bad aspects, but nothing good to say as well
