Wenig würziger, trocken herber Antrunk. Langweilig malzig mit geringfügig steigender Tendenz, herber Nachhall. Belanglos. 7/7/6/6/9/6

BBD 6/8/16. Pours a clear golden. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Rather weak nose of light biscuit and light hops.
Medium body with a smooth texture that has some creamy aspects. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding due to it’s total absence of off flavors and perfect balance. Intensity lacks a bit and this beer is not very complex. It begins with a slightly sweet biscuit base that has some grainy aspects, but is not cracker like. Soft subtle pear notes float over biscuit. The middle brings a soft herbal hop flavor and bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of the middle with subsiding biscuit and a hint of alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body with a thin yet clinging white head. Inviting aroma of malt and caramel sweetness. The palate is smooth and clean but a little thin. Nice clean taste with the malt taking center stage. There is a slight hoppy bite at the end. A good, very drinkable Octoberfest.

Clear golden, bubbly, with a white head. Malt and yeast aroma. Mild hop character, a little earthy. Not bad.

.5L draft on tap at Gustavs. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity biscuit nose. Sweet toasted malts, caramel, light fruit. Very dough like sweet. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice, clean amber body with white head. Aroma is faint, with subtle sweetness. Taste is strong, sweet grains and roast caramel, a little too front loaded. Finish is mostly clean with some bitterness. Not what I was expecting and a bit disappointed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 11.2 oz bottle. Pale amber brew just a shade or two darker than a lager. Aroma of caramel and a little grass. Taste is mild sweet caramel up front, a bit of grass emerging, ends with a slightly astringent finish and the same caramel notes that emerged with the first sip. Tasty enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh from tap at local Oktoberfest: Appeared a sparkling golden liquid with minimal formation of foam head. Aroma is faint but any scents that do come through resemble strong smell of wheat grains and hay. The drink has a similar taste as my nose detected but a fuller body of grains, cereals, and oat finishes the beer up. Easily quaffable marzen but doesn’t exactly stand out from any of the other golden oktoberfest biers I have sampled in the past.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Definitely not impressed. For a 200+ old German brewery this was very bland with little aroma or taste. Poured a beautiful golden with a small head but tasted like two year old flat fest. Disappointed
