2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer has lost its edge. The latest bottles I bought were super fresh (use by May 13). Just grassy, dry and lacking any character. It used to be hoppy, lemony, flowery, clean and crisp.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sip. BB 22.06.2017. Pours pale golden, clear body with a bit of floaties. Good off-white head that retains and laces nicely. Straw aroma with grassy hops, pretty nice. Tastes of malts (loads of cereal notes), with dry and grassy bitterish finish. Very dry on the palate, with thin but active carbonation, and - as advertised - rich body. Simple but well made. I’d love this to be available year-round if I were a lager guy.

Pours light gold with a medium white head, good retention. Aromas of caramel,
biscuit, straw, and earth. Light body, good carbonation. Mildly sweet, lingering mild earthy bitter finish. The roast seems too light for a marzen, but it is a nice hearty German lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear solar yellow with a thick and fairly persistent eggshell head. Aroma delivers zesty fresh malt riding fruity and hoppy tones. Flavor not only ramps up the aroma’s offerings, it also tosses in more than a snip of honey. Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz, but this is still an enjoyable brew. Glückliches Oktoberfest!
