3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
20080927 12oz bottle from Spirits RB. Clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is mild doughy yeast and light toast notes. Mildly herby, grassy hops. Clean and very pleasant. Lively eff on the palate. Extremely drinkable while cool. This stuff seems like a dortmunder. As it warms some of the alcohol sweetly emerges and might have started to dominate but I drank that sucker down right quick. In your FACE Weihenstephaner!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a brown bottle in Albuquerque, pours a clear gold color with streaming bubbles and a thin white head. Light-to-medium body, Very clean light maltiness. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish with a touch of hops bitterness. Very "light" for a Märzen but nice.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very light golden color with full head. Slightly sweet aroma but very disquised and faint. Subtle malt taste and very light on the palate for an Oktoberfest brew. Not bursting with flavor and complexity but a good overall beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the lightest pouring Oktoberfests I’ve seen, hazy straw colored with a medium frothy snow-white head. Sweet grassy aroma, light caramel. Sweet malt, super grassy, hay, light caramel, finishes bitter. A bit chalky. A very light festbier, covers the alcohol pretty well and is very easy drinking. Medium/light body with light sizzling carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow from tap. Was severed in a big old mug which suits this beer well. It is light with just a bit of sweetness. Not much more or less make it ejoyable and very drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed on-tap at the Buckeye Beer Engine. Apple juice colour with some white wheat. The aroma and tase of sour wheat. Below average mouthfeel. Not up to expectations for this brewery.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Initial veggie cabage aroma. Clears into an acceptable clean smell in the glass. Fairly bitter on the tongue, more than I expected. Clear pale yellow color. Thin teafroth head. Nice looking bottle label, entertaining. Fine creamy carbonation. Lingering bitter biting back palate. Refreshing in its own acceptable way. Not heavy. Not as good as many other smoother octoberfests such as Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen or Schells.
