3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: mostly clear, a deep gold with some orange notes to it; solid finger of slightly yellowed head, decent lacing. Aroma: slightly grassy, with malty cereal and light toast. Taste: definite notes of toasted white bread, cereal grains, lightly grassy and earthy hops. Finish: medium-length, with lingering grainy notes and just a bare hint of metal. Notes: Not bad at all. Extremely drinkable palate, perfect complement to an Oktoberfest feast. Not close to the best versions of the style, but when it’s the only game in town, that’s fine. On draft at various places in and around ’Germany’ in EPCOT at Disney World.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1.5L (I think--giant swingtop bottle). Thanks, T! Pours a clear pale amber with a light frothy off-white head. Aluminum and maybe a bit of artichoke on the nose. Creamy light body with lively intermittent carb. Leaves, aluminum, and artichoke on the mid palate. Muddled finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2 liter swingtop bottle, from Dutch’s for $18. Shared with friends. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Good dots and ropes of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly creamy. Light slick body. Lightly dry finish. Toasty caramel malt, lightly spicy, light rough bite to it. Lightly peppery. The flavor overall is slightly below average for an oktoberfest, but it’s still pretty solid and classicly german style. Nothing great or impressive about it, just a solid oktoberfest. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Decent stuff. Mild metallic. Huge bottle was very fun ("I’m trying to cut back so I only brought ONE beer!!") and a great price for the 2 liter format.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample @ "Germany" in EPCOT during the Food & Wine festival 2014. Pours clear medium golden color with white head. Very pale for an Oktoberfest beer, at least compared to what I have had. Aromas of cereal malts and grass. Similar flavors. Medium body with average carbonation. Seems more pilsner-like than Oktoberfest.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Epcot. Poured a ridiculously light straw body for an Oktoberfest, fluffy bright white head. Aroma is corn, malts, grass. Flavor is the same as the aroma but add in some toast. Luckily the body is medium with crisp carbonation that makes the refreshing, but still a ripoff at Epcot prices, for the FL heat.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Craaazy light. Had to check with bartender that it was right beer. Crisp body. Good balance of European malts with some good yeast. A good beer, but not what I’d call an Oktoberfest at all in taste or appearance.

I was very disappointed with this beer very light and tastes like a pilsner more than anything.

.52 gallon bottle with flip top...nice. Golden, lemony beer that reminded me more of a wheat than a Marzen. OK to drink...would be good ice cold on a hot day.
