3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh hop flavor on the nose. Deep amber color with nice lacing against the glass. Hoppy flavor with some caramel, oat and wheat undertones. Full bodied with a well done complexity. Overall, this is a nice, full flavored Oktoberfest brew with lots of hops. I’d give this a B+ rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber orange; no lacing. Musky yeast aromas. Bread, dry earth and yeast flavors with a nice, clean finish. Pretty sokid oktoberfest.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Sugary sweet nose with malt notes. Carmel, toast, biscuit. Clear amber with no head, good carbonation. Almost undrinkably sweet. Good malt depth and spice notes but so off-balance that it’s lost. It might just be the sweetness, but something makes this immensely unpleasant.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
9-23-07. Hazy amber brown with great foamy head. Slightly medicinal aroma, but mostly malty and calm and not overdone. A bit of a doughy taste - slightly bland. Palate is very carbonated and slightly watery. I can drink this and it isn’t awful but it isn’t anything special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a transparent orange/red, with small white head. Aroma is light, of malt, cherries. Flavor is full of hops, bitter, citrus ending. A nice example of the style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget @ Stockholm. Pours reddish amber with a small head. Sweet caramel aroma, a bit fruity with some bitter hints. Taste is quite light, slightly bitter. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel, short aftertaste. OK beer and quite sessionable - but not spectacular.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper with small tan head. Spicy malt aroma. Taste is spicy, malty, woodsy, caramelly and toasty. A classic Oktoberfest taste. Some decent bitterness on the back end. Medium body. Can’t say anything bad about it at all. A solid Marzen and definitely one I’d buy again.

(Bottle). A somewhat watery Oktoberfest. The malt is somewhat tart and not as sweet as optimal.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Pours a red amber, a little on the brown side. Large white head, minimal lacing. Sweet, malty/yeasty nose, with a bit of hops in the background. Clean taste, a tinny bit sweet, no real bite. Some citrus/fruit comes through. Finishes smooth. Easy drinking brew, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured clear amber with a smallish white head. Sweet malts then some interesting, but not always balanced hops. I like this kind of beer, but nothing special.
