3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of light citrus and bread. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that ringed and laced. More of a fruit aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Thin to medium bodied with very mild, nigh creamy, carbonation. It’s lightly sweet, a bit fruity, and there’s a very little bitter that builds over time. The finish is more dry than sweet, it’s got some light fruit, and a bit of bitter. Floral hop? Not your typical lager. Very tasty indeed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale straw with a two-finger white head. Grainy aroma with a touch of breadiness and a respectable dose of German hops. Flavor is more of the same. Those hops come in honey-sweet and earthy. No, it’s no Marzen, but this is a great, drinkable, pilsener-ish beer for all sorts of fests.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy gold colored body with an egg shell white head. This is easily the lightest Ofest style brew I have ever seen. The aroma has old fall leaves and some toffee. The mouthfeel is creamy and thick. The taste has notes of toffee and black tea. There is also a little bit of bitter bread crust in the finish. A decent brew, but could use a little more malt balance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured to a pale yellow with thin white head and a little lacing. Aroma is a mix of grassy hops and slight skunky grain. Mouthfeel from this somewhat carbonated beer is slightly tingly, but this moves right into a flavor of grass and grain. Finish is short, stale and a littel skunky. Not one of Weihenstephaner’s best by any means.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw color with a soft white head. Decent lace. Pale malt and somewhat grassy/herbal hops. Smells like a fairly typical euro lager. Quite lively in feel. Pale and toasty malts abound. Quite heavily hopped with a green hop and herbal quality in the middle. Soft wintergreen and malt follow in the finish and linger. Smooth and drinkable. A bit sharper than most fest brews, but very clean.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ridiculously huge and sort of impressively white frothy head atop a clear yellow body. Aroma was mildly grainy and malty with a bit of sweetness. The flavor was much more intense than the aroma, with a lot of the sweet grainy flavors. Very clean and super easy to drink. I can imagine having a huge stein of this and getting good and drunk. Not the greatest brew really, but still pretty solid for what it is. Light and easy, good for those who want to go the distance.
