lbianchi66 (384) - FRANCE - APR 11, 2016
Robe ambrée et limpide. La mousse tient peu. Arômes céréales et carmel. Goűt carmel et fruits jaunes. Texture aqueuse. Une octoberfest correcte.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours a crystal clear copper-light brown with a thin white ring of head. Aroma is rich malt(I think Vienna), caramel, mild floral and fruity esters, and toast. Flavour is malty, mild sweet caramel, mild bitterness, floral, toast and some melanoidins.

3fourths (9322) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Clear Amber with a short head, quickly dissipating into nothing. Aroma impression is cinnamon candy, light copper pennies, twangy amber malt extract syrup. Woefully under-carbonated, syrupy and flabby in the mouth. Medium sweetness, low bitterness, candy apple finish. Pretty unpleasant.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet pale malts, toast, caramel and a light melanoidin character. Taste is sweet pale malts, caramel, flowery esthers and a bitter finish... Not really characteristic of a oktoberfest style... Needs more melanoidin character along with that rich toast and biscuit character. Feel this score is fairly generous.

Golden, clear with yellowish foam. Malt, bisquette, in the aroma. Malt sweet toffee hay, with sweet bitterness.

A seasonal brew from Kaldi. Just another Kaldi, nothing different apart from the label and the name. Been there done that.

sebletitje (9955) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2012
33cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Martinus who brought it back from his adventures in Iceland. Couleur ambrée, col fin beige. Arôme est malté moyen sur une pointe de caramel, le houblon est ici quasi peu notable. Palais est malté, profil caramel restant trčs modéré, houblon est lŕ mais sans vraiment ajouter une dimension souhaitée, le tout reste assez doux, avec un malt typique oscillant sur du carapils-allemand. Un petit plus pour l"effort pour une bičre qui se laisse boire.

Martinus (4595) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Clear amber brown colour, light white head. Quite aged aroma, malts, caramel, sherry, raisins, attic, lager yeast and light mineral note. Sweet malty flavour, raisins and caramel. Quite light body. Finish raisins, old herbs and aged beer.
Strange beer. The front label mentions 2006, which I assumed ment the year it was first brewed, or the year the brewery started or something like this. Shine label, fresh in the store, it doesn’t really look old. However, it does taste old. Best before is Dec 2012.
(33cL bottle shared @ pre-Zwanze 2012 tasting)

33 cl. fles gedeeld door Tinus tijdens de pre-Zwanze 2012 tasting, bedankt. Nu heb ik zowel een bierstijl die ik nog moest doen geproefd alsook een bier van een land waar ik sterk naar benieuw naar was. Zijn uitleg over de evolutie van de legale status van alcohol in IJsland was best ook wel heer interessant. Op de fles staat het jaar 2006 vermeld, niet helemaal zeker waar dit op slaat, stichtingsdatum van de brouwerij of de vintage van dit bier…? De houdbaarheidsdatum ligt wel ergens eind december van dit jaar. Klein proefglaasje genomen. Ziet er radiant koper amber uit met weinig witte kraag. Geur verraad een Duitse bier, lager gist alsook de leeftijd van dit bier, iets ouder karamel mout en wat ijzer. Smaak is hetzelfde, tekenen van ouderdom, niet al te zwaar, karamel, lichte synthetische toffee, zoet ijzer, oude kruiden, licht donker fruit een metallische finish. Lichtjes olie-achtig, ouder Duitse lager mondgevoel. Dit was waarschijnlijk lichtjes leuker toen het vers was.
