3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much of an aroma with this beer. If anything, there was a grassy or bready pilsner type smell. It had a nice deep, gold color. Flavor was mostly a mild bitterness. Wasn’t spectacular, but I’d probably drink it again

Pours a light gold with white head. The aroma is spice, like a Belgian wit. The flavor is sour and spicy like orange peel and coriander. There is a bit of sourness to this beer. Not what I think of when I picture an Oktoberfest beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly light-bodied, a translucent gold. Crisp and malty with traditional Vienna flavors. Lightly dry and lightly sweet caramel backbone, and moderate bitterness.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Straw yellow clear beer with little white head disappearing quick but not completely, leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy malty with bulk lager like maize sweetness and little grassy hoppy. Flavor is little malty and maizey sweet with that unpleasant bulk lager taste. Nice bitter aftertaste, little thinner than medium. Not much better than a cheap bulk lager.

Bottle. Pours clear gold. Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grain, toast. Taste is sweet. Quick finish. Disappointment to say the least.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color with decent off white head. Big malt aroma and slight hop backbone. Lots of malt flavor up front and mild hop bitterness in the finish. Some mild astringency and alcohol on the finish. Overall, a little on the sweet side.

Classic marzen. A must try but don’t expect greatness. Smooth and easy to drink. Slightly sweet. Good brew for a fall day.

Enjoy this beer at an Oktoberfest party. Decent for drinking with schnitzel and french fries. Refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear pale yellow with a foamy white head propelled by fairly vigorous fine bubbled carbonation. Fairly standard but good German lager aroma. Light creamy texture with a biscuit malt flavor and a bit of corn in the back with some light sweetness. Good earthy hop balance and the light bitterness hangs around. Light, easy drinking and maybe a bit thin, but a very good Oktoberfest lager overall.
