3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma is clean and bready, lightly metallic, with light malty notes. Taste is malty with cracker breadiness and crisp lager yeastiness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with full, lively carbonation. Could use a bit more body and rich maltiness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
What the heck? Did I get the wrong beer in my bottle? A pale and fizzy yellow pour. Thin white ring for a head. Taste was honey, grain and some hops. Kind of the opposite of what I consider an Oktoberfest. Not bad on a hot day, but not Oompah band Oktoberfest-y. Tastes like a pale lager.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Honey malt dominates the aroma, with a slight peppery feeling. Pours slightly amber, its pretty blonde, i’d prefer a little richer color in my festbeers. Very smooth and malty, some honey, pepper spices hidding in the background from the german hops, some cereal like flavors as well. I could see myself drinking this beer by the liter!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle-A different looking Oktoberfest beer. The brew was a pale yellow color with a fizzy head. The aroma had some hops, a touch of malt and grains or perhaps corn. The taste was better, it had a more malty taste. The beer was a little thin.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 tra le mie preferite della produzione Hofbrau è questa birra ’speciale’ per la ormai nota e arcinota Oktoberfest, piacevolissima con uno spuntino, simpatica, sicuramente preferibile alla helles ’original’.
Comprata meno spesso al supermercato - ma solo perché non si trovava tutto l’anno.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours lite-golend blonde, clear with a thinner, but foamy head. Smells hoppy and a little hint of clovey spicey-ness. A little bit lighter on the palate with a smooth malty plum flavor, balanced by a spciey and refreshing hoppy kick. Overall a quenching beer but it seems to stop a little bit short of expectations- not bad.

The Dan Journal #45. Tasted 10/22/06. part of the Autumn tasting. Filtered and dull golden. Slightly fruity nose. Medium bodied and sweet with hints of corn. Well hopped and mildly dry. Nice graham cracker flavor. Really nice O’fest. Might be my favorite of the night..
