3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
deep amber color with large tan colored head showing fine bubbles, good brussels lace on the glass as is goes down.
Nose is funky--kind of like bread, with maltiness forward and supporting floral hops.
Taste is a bit drier than expected, with subtle hops and decent maltiness.
A nice take on the style.

Bomber from the bottle shelf for $1.49 Poured a nice copper color with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malts and a slight citrus note. Flavor was rather "crisp" and "spicy?" witha back bone of sweet malts. A rather dry mouthfeel, I dont know why but this Octoberfest didn’t move me the way Hacker-Pschorr did.

Clear light amber with an off-white head. Scent of honey and malt in a refreshing combination, later turning to floral hop aromas with malt. Light yet robust flavor with unassuming mouthfeel. Very good Oktoberfest - the only beer of the style that’s impressed me yet.

Orangish in appearance, the subtle malting becomes more apparent in aroma and flavor as the beer warms. A bit light-bodied, however, the low roasted malts are pleasant, yet undemanding on the palate.

Germany. 500ml bottle. Clear bronze color with a large off white head and great retention. Decent lacing. Smooth and clean mouthfeel. Strong caramel malt base and a clean finish. Not too sweet A fine Oktoberfest beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
this beer looks like an oktoberfest should. golden-orange with a creamy, persistent head. any lacing falls quickly from the side of the glass. subtle bread in the aroma. clean grain, with a dry, and slightly sweet finish. lively mouthfeel, with a metallic tinge. an ideal oktoberfest, the best i’ve had yet.

Dark honey-brown color is nice. The taste is a bit less malty and more bitter than most Oktoberfest braus. Nice head formation.

Wow!! Super smooth. amber body, white to beige foamy creamy head, some sweetness and though it has 5.8% i doesnt have a negative impact in its flavor, the aroma was floral hops with little carbonation

On tap at Patricks Irish pub Ljubljana. A bit red tint, herbal notes, low caramel and dough. Some diacetyl was however present and not that enjoyable. Otherwise has high drinkability and is mostly balanced.
