3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown color, beige head cover, dots and smears of lace. Taste is caramel malt with mild floral hops in the finish. It grows some in the palate, but, otherwise, that’s about it. On the good side, it is easy-drinking, enjoyable, and good for pitcher-sharing. Whaddya know? A good Hudey.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Moerlein Lager House tent for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. Pours a semi-cloudy chestnut amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, grass, and toast. Flavor of nuts, toast, caramel, brown sugar, and dried leaves. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Not bad. Definitely Americanized in comparison to the Paulaners I just had.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a twist off bottle, been sitting in my garage for about a month. Yes, typical lighter octoberfest beer, fairly enjoyable. Not too bad overall. Does have some of that annoying octofest bitterness in there but it never goes over the top.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - pours light brown with thin tan head and decent lacing. Nose is toasty. Flavor adds a nutty maltiness and light roast. Balanced between sweet and bitter but not pronounced. Lacks the cheesiness of Hudepohl. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized, but rapidly disappearing white head. The aroma is toasted malts, mildly sweet, caramel, with a tiny splash of chemicals. The flavor is pretty standard for an oktoberfest; toasted malts, caramel, light grainy with mild bitterness. This was not very exciting, although I didn’t expect much.
