3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Bottle: murky, golden color with a huge, yeast-like haze throughout. Head is smooth, off-white, and lasts for many minutes atop the muddled brew. Aroma is like smelling sweet, fresh baked bread. Packed with bready malts; sweet and toasty with a light underbody of grains and very mild caramel. Only a light touch of musty Noble hops. Each sip is light bodied, crisp, and fresh. Hops are much more present on the palate - definitely of the Noble variety with home bitterness, mustiness, and an earthy character to them. Toasted bread malts, much less caramel, and not as sweet as the nose would lead you to believe. Very, very faint touch of toasted bread and toffee in the finish. Finishes crisp, dry, and clean.

I drank this with an Oktoberfestbier label, according to Ratebeer it’s the same beer as their Winter Festbier. Guess this would explain the pale golden color, light body, not at all what I expected.

Poured as a taster at the local bottle shop. Typical oktoberfest style, pretty good mouth feel, okay malt flavor. Not my favorite oktoberfest, but okay.

Goldden with a large, quickly diminishing white head. Earthy, light hoppy, light malt aroma. Taste light sweet with short duration. Oily texture, light carbonation. Fairly standard lager to be honest.

Drank on draft and out of a bottle the following day. Not blown away by the taste. Subtle but definitely complexity is there. Earthy, light, mild wheat. Good not great

Smells like pond water after a fish kill, doesn't taste much better. Quite disappointed.

Golden color, aroma of earth, grass and leaves. Similar taste but sweet with toasted malt. Not a bad Oktoberfest flavor.

drank out of glass had large white head. Has a hazy color of yellow or gold. Has almost a Earthy flavor to to go with the grassy wheat smell followed by a similar aftertaste.

Tap at Pivni, York. Clear as a bell golden. Big, white head. Bready aroma. Some fruitiness and toasty maltiness. (Is that a real word?). A little spiciness too. Sweetness on the finish.
