3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Rather atypical for an Oktoberfest, but I guess that’s American style. Malt forward aroma with some juicy hops. Medium body with lots of barley taste, crisp carbonation. A bit like watered down and more carbonated barley wine, actually. Finish drops quickly to a lingering sweet malt flavour. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beautiful, copper colour, a head is quite small and blond. Aroma has riped and sweet fruits, some raisins, fruit cake, richness of malts. Taste has strong maltyness, plums and also other dried fruits, some bitterness. Medium+ bodied, slippery, easy to drink. Brilliant lager, richness of malts with dried fruits. If the all Oktoberfest beers would be like this, then the Fall would be much better.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 65cl. Poured into a stem glass. Slightly hazy deep amber, small frothy beige head, mostly diminishing, light lacing; malty aroma, roasty, caramel, honey, candy sugar, bit licorice; taste medium to light heavy sweet and medium bitter, roasted malts, toffee, toasted bread, sugary, light hops set in late, quite alcoholic, with long duration, malty sweetbitter finish, caramel, light coffee notes, some alcohol; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation; strong and sweet but well-balanced, is this a Märzen? More a winterbeer I guess. Anyway I like this kind of beers.
