Taboada (1144) - Compostela (Galiza), - OCT 31, 2016
500 mml bottle tasted on the 30/10/2016. Clear pale golden colour with a huge white head. Aroma of yeast and grains. Taste is medium watery and intense yeasty. Next one please!

panzerwolf (352) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Malts and some grassy, herbal notes. Kind of simple in its taste, not very bitter, just very much average. Pleasant enough, but doesn’t really stick in your mind in any way, either. Nice, though.

hauxe (624) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2016
Pours clear gold from the bottle and leaves a large, foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, with a large dollop of honey. Taste is overall sweet with a light bitter twist at the end that feels just a touch rancid. Simple overall with no twists or turns, but I can see this being a decent accompanyment to a heavy German meal of schweinshaxe and sauerkraut - something balance the sweetness and hide the flaws. Body is medium. The 6.3 ABV is very well hidden.

BrewWhatIWant (141) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
If I’m not mistaken, this is one of the six official breweries of Oktoberfest in Munich. Having never been there, this isn’t quite what I expected. It pours a clear straw colour with a foamy white head that fades quickly. Nose is floral with hints of caramel. Taste is extremely sweet. Notes of honey, caramel, cereal, and spices, but little maltiness.The hops start with a sharp bite and quickly fade to a light, floral taste. Full bodied and moderately carbonated. This is for malt what so many IPAs are for hops. Good flavours, but too unbalanced to be a really good beer.

Not impressed. Kind of like Heineken without the bitterness? I liked the Octoberfest Marzen from Paulaner and Ayinger much, much better.

batupata (36) - FINLAND - OCT 21, 2016
Pours a completely clear, light yellow coloured beer with very small white head. Aroma is typical for lager beer with the cereal notes and hops, this has some herbs as well. The taste is surprisingly sweet at first but gains some bitterness rather quickly. The finish is quite short and little spicy. Very easy beer to drink with its medium carbonation and refreshing feel. Nothing too special but better than I expected.

llucmaduell (231) - barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 17, 2016
Following the tradition cervesara, I purchased and tested a octobertfest. I knew that this beer was not my favorite. It looks like a beer made to fill the belly of drink, and return it to fill your belly. I like most enjoy a good beer
