Bottle 9 C.
S: malty, danish raybread - nice tones for the nose.
A: gold colour, high creamy head - so far promising!
F: dry, sourbitter, with a wee hunny swetness - mmm not a good combination.
ES: the sour after bitterness clings on...
I thought that Kaltenberg should be one of the better Oktober beers? DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle at one of chris o’s tastings. Alround rating: Cereal malts, balanced, grassy, quite a bit of bittering hop. yespr (44811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Light cornish aroma. Bitter and light caramelish flavoured. light bitter finish. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle, thanks OleR.
Small head, golden beer.
A fairly malty and strong lager, but it does not distinguish itself in any way. You feel they have gone for the cheapest ingredients.

500 ml bottle. A thin layer of foam over a crystal clear, low carbonated, pilsner golden body. Grain, stale bread and dough in the aroma. Faint fruit notes. Light sweet and quite unfresh malt flavor. Grassy bitterness. Oily texture. Bitter-sweet ending. Edgy and simple, not really good. esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2008
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear copper to yellow colour. Medium, quite firm and creamy head. Aroma is malty sweet with some grains and slightly grassy and metallic hops. Some alcohol and paper are present in the finish. Sweetish flavor with low bitteration in the finish with grainy malts. Medium bodied, low carbonated palate. Not very interesting one. gnoff (10241) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2008

(Bottle, brewed under license in Sweden by Krönleins) Yellow colour with white, frothy, but brief head. Malty nose with notes of bread, grain, grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Malty, grassy taste with bread, citrus and grassy hops. Initial bitterness fades out towards the dry finish. Cleaner, drier and less malty than most german oktoberfestbeers. Fresh and drinkable.
