2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has bready malts and some specific spiciness I get in Märzen beers. Taste is also bready and slightly sweet. A bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Body is a bit more dense than a regular lager but still in the light-medium zone. A bit of warming from the alcohol which I don’t like. Märzen is definitely one of my least favorite beer styles but this one is pretty decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
As much as I admire Augustiner Hell as a paragon of subtlety and balance, I don’t really know what to do with the Oktoberfest beer. I’ve worked my way through most of a case trying to figure it out. It the end I file it somewhere near the Belgian tripels: too sweet and strong to be of daily use to me. Pours bright gold, sturdy and fluffy head if poured aggressively enough. Smells like sweet grain, corn, honey. Taste is mostly sweet with only a soft bitterness. Lively from the bottle. Very light alcohol burn. Back to Hell for me.
