3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Very pleasant - crisp, malty and smooth, full bodied. Prickly carbonation. Not much depth, but clean and easy drinking. A great one to start a session with.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. Golden body with brilliant clarity, but missing head. Discreet, clean malty to the nose. Malt and grain in the flavour with a short brush of hops. Wheaty mouthfeel and moderate palate. A bit over sweet (Trier, 16.09.2007).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear, pale golden with a white foam that started out big, but shrinked. Malty, rather unsexy aroma. Sweet malty flavours, some breadiness, not much hops. Slightly drier finish. Boring stuff.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear golden (quite pale for an Oktoberfest) with a fluffy white head. Plain and one-dimensional bready malt profile with a slight touch of alcohol. Very smooth mouthfeel and a good balance with a dry finish saves the day. Still a very much mediocre Oktoberfest.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours gold and fizzy with a dissipating white head. Smells of apples, citrus, some biscuits. Taste is of wildflowers, apples and some sweet sugary messy malt. Not an O-fest by and stretch of the imagination.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale yellow, thin white head. Fresh smell with malts and citrus. Taste is sweet of malt with some hop bitterness to it. Malty dry finish. Nothing special, really.
