Can on Southwest flight ECP-HOU for Thanksgiving in Dallas. Middle of the road fest beer. Sweeter malt with light bitterness. It gets a little more flavorful as it warms. Okay.

If you must partake in a Leinie Oktoberfest, try to find it on tap rather than in a bottle. While neither has an especially distinctive aroma, the draft version is smoother and sweeter while the bottled variety is thin and bitter. To be honest, neither is memorable but at least the tapper is bearable.

Nice dark amber color with an off-white head leaves a modest lacing. Smells heavily of hopps with a mild citrus background. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness. The carbonation is subtle and makes the beer quite easy to drink.

Pours a copper from a bottle, thin white head with some lacing. Aroma of toffee and toast, flavor similar, rather sweet, no bitterness to speak of. Not a lot going on, kind of plain. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little below average oktoberfest brew. Very little aroma or taste, some hints of malts and a slight caramel finish. A dark amber body, with average carbonation leads to a thin white head that didnt leave much lace. Smooth mouth feel, with no aftertaste. Originally rated on 11/8/08.
