3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw, cereal, meal), light hop (herbs), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple and plum. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse. Orange-amber pour with a one finger head. Low to moderate retention. Grassy, malty aroma.... unpleasant. Sweet grainy taste followed by a toasty and slightly nutty malt finish. Taste is better than the aroma by far, thankfully. Medium body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer rocks.
LOTS of rich malt in the nose. The German hops give off a perfume-like aroma. Also detected prunes. Perfect, sparkling amber. Small khaki head with nice lacing. Very malty, slightly sour. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Fizzy. Mohave dry, yet slightly sour in the long finish. Rich Malt lingers on the tongue for quite a while. Worth a try.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours little leasting fizzy head. peach colour. Initially quenching and fruity but soon strong carbonation overwhelms and burns, and sugary sweet finish it doesn’t work for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a reddish orange with a fizzy white head.
The smell is of oxidized fruits and caramel.
The taste is a bit bland, it starts with a mineral water character and moves into a doughy sweetness with a bit of bitterness.
This beer hardly excites me, one of the more forgettable Oktoberfest beers.
