3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at City Beer Store in SF. Nice-looking bubbly yellow color--though has the same appearance that I trash for the NAILs. So it goes, I’m not pretending to be unbiased.
Aroma of hay, sugar, a little metal, taste of straw, honey, . Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and long-lasting for the type, very refreshing. Slightly bitter final note with a faint hop finish. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold pour with a fizzy white head. Metal, caramel, sugar, and grass in the aroma. Butter, wheat, malt, and a slight Heineken hop skunkiness. Good enough.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Yellow, orange brew with little to no head. Aroma is of spicy, subtle malts and hops. Flavor is of buttery malts and hops, but has a little peppery feel on the palate. Smooth, but little flavor.

I drank it out of a Maß in the Hofbrau-Festzelt and Hofbrauhaus at Oktoberfest in Munich. It was rather light for an Oktoberfest beer. It was my least favorite of all beer there.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Huh... this is much higher rated than I would have guessed. It has a very light color for an Oktoberfest... golden with a fluffy and big white head that quickly fades away. Aromas are strong of Becks... you know, that skunky hops smell that is just slightly more offensive than Heineken and has some metal note in for good measure. Flavor is lager all the way... corny, metallic and skunky. Can’t see what others are seeing in this.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Green 12 oz bottle. Poured fizzy, gold and with a disappearing head. Grass and hay aroma with a sweet scent as well. Sweet straw, cereal and honey flavors, which sounds harmless enough, but unfortunately makes me think of some cheap corned up lager instead of a traditional O.F. More disturbing was the absence of any real hop balance. Cardboardy aftertaste. Pretty weak.

On tap at HB Tent at Oktoberfest. Had many liters of this. Golden, massive head. Eggy taste and refreshing. Had fun tasting these.
