2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a transparent golden amber with thin foamy head. Aroma of sour yeast, wheat and barley. Taste is sour, wheat, bready with a slightly bitter finish. Very light Mouthfeel. Has a pilsner/watery Oktoberfest taste. Not much body to this beer, light taste, too much bitterness and sourness with the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Dorrian’s Red Hand, 11/3/13
Aroma: Nice, clean malty aroma, on the light side, with caramel and bready notes
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a nice sized white head and some light lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same line, clean and malty, a little sweet, but not overly sweet
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a crisp, clean feel, and a smooth finish
Solid example of the style. It is clean and easy drinking, which makes for a nice overall feel, even if the flavors aren’t all that exciting.

On Tap in Seattle .. OK Oktoberfest beer, and much better than the regualr Warsteiner but still not as good as some of the other german Oktoberfest options .... probably would not buy again

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: deep, clear gold with two fingers of thick, frothy, bright white head that lasts a surprisingly long time, leaving lots of lace and slowly shrinking to a thick cap. Aroma: slightly sweet, with aromas of musty grain, honey, toast, and a hint of wet grass. Taste: sweet and bready, with caramel, brown toast, honey smacks, a bit of black pepper, and some light orange/marmalade notes. Finish: clean, slightly sweet, with a crisp back end. Notes: Lighter in color than the Marzens I’m used to, but the head and lacing were a quality surprise. Aromas and flavors were on the sweet side, but very enjoyable and consistent with the style, although not quite as bready as typically expected. A pleasant surprise, from a generally sub-par brewery.

Pours yellow-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is "Oktoberfest" with the yeast, pilsener malts and peppery spices. Taste is mildly sweet malts that drops quickly for the finish. Definitely refreshing.

Nice color. Reasonably full flavored beer, with a good taste and mouthfeel. No bitterness. One of the better Oktoberfest beers for my tastes.
