2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
16.9oz Bottle. The pour was a light golden yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that quickly receded down to a very small collar and had poor spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, herbal hops and a sweaty yeast with a light hint of caramel along with a mild fruity ester.
The taste was mildly malty with a light caramel sweetness and a strong grainy feel throughout, with the finish having a very light bitterness and a slight medicinal presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a grainy bitter taste left behind to fade into the background very slowly.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall this was a brew that did not offer up much flavor or anything else for that matter. Although it did have a good smooth drinkability and a very light feel, which would allow you to drink a few without feeling blotted...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lost review from last fall. Neither the tastiest nor easiest to spell Oktoberfest beer. Pale gold, sweet and biscuity.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a chilled 11.2 ounce, brown glass bottle into a dimpled glass; 1st impression was of the cloudy golden hues emanating; thin head; an initial, mild skunky taste soon dissipating into a quick hopped, first, 2nd a maltiness.
The 6 pack container has on it a photograph of 4 nuns, sitting in the sun at what looks like a garden table, laughing and of course, enjoying a beer with mother superior’s glass already empty.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 1 pint, .9 ounce bottle labeled "Weihenstephaner Oktoberfest", purchased at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on October 3, 2014. Medium gold hue, malty nose with slight skunkiness, light to moderate bittersweet toasted malt flavor which could be more robust. This might have been a bit old--would revisit this, preferably on draft.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fin slightly better log almost a full yellow pale in the van color not very cloudy little see-through. Does not deliver a big head. Definitely a Bavarian Oktoberfest in contrast to the Americans that's a richer flavor with the duppel bach color. Drinking this from a 1 pint .9 fluid ounce bottle labeled Oktoberfest beer a nice subtle refreshing lager for the autumn season.
