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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured clear with a skim of head. Looked like some typical beat ass pilsner. Astringent bug spray finish. Really not worth drinking.

(Draught at St Urho’s Pub, Helsinki, on 2008-09-11) Pale golden. Clear. Small quickly disappearing white head. Some grass and malts in nose. Medium bodied fresh palate with lot of carbonation. Sweetness, malts, hint of grass and bitterness in taste. Easy to drink.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from EZ Liquors. Pours looking like a standard macro, clear pale golden yellow body with bubbly carbonation and an average size frothy foamy bright white head. Aroma of grains, sweet dough, dust, lemons and old cellar. Thin watery bodied with average to strong carbonation. Flavor of bread and grains with a slight touch of burnt rubber and some hop bitterness at the end. Bleh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl bottle. Pours with hardly any lasting head in an Ayinger glass. Aroma is light grains/cereal. Flavor has a sweet, honey taste with toasty biscuit. Not the best beer out there by far. Finish has a metallic flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden, with a fizzy body, and a thick, but short-lived head - it threw me off at first, as I’m so used to o-fests being amber - pretty much everything about this beer isn’t what you’d expect an o-fest to be, which might account for some of the low ratings, but once you overlook that, this is a pretty decent lager - honey sweet nose, with soft, perfume-like floral hops, and a light bready character - the body is light and crisp - a noble hop bite presents first, with a light floral character that settles on top of it and lingers for a while, as mild honey sweetness gradually forms underneath it - the sweetness lingers for a bit, by crisp hops close things out - quite a refreshing brew - underrated, IMHO.
