2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1L can (fun stuff!). Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of skunk, bready malt, cardboard, light skunky fruits. Flavor of sweet malts and light fruits upfront with a bready malt finish. A pretty bland beer, but the flavor is better than the aroma. [2.9/5]

Clear golden pour with large, rocky white head. The nose is a typical barley malt and wheat aroma. The taste is mildly sweet with lively carbonation and crisp, clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2012 Clear golden/tan with a white head. Not much aroma on this but a clean lager smell. Fairly thin body with light maltiness with a bit of caramel and a somewhat lingering bitterness. Easy drinking and that’s what it’s about. **Update 4/23/2012** Had this out of the 1 L oil can for German Beer Day 2012 and I’m liking it more than I remember. Adding some more points for tastiness. Prost!

Tap. Light aromas of straw for the malt, herbs for the hops and leather for the yeast, with background notes of melon and some faint spice. Head is thin, wispy white with slight spotty lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is crystal clear yellow, like white wine. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery and has a lively carbonation. This Oktoberfest has some interesting aromas, but it’s just so light in every way.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, medium yellow pour from a 1L can. Fleeting white head.
The aroma is slightly spicy weak hops, and thin malt.
The flavor has some sweetness initially, but it quickly smooths out into a dry finish.
Certainly not a Marzen, more like a Dortmunder to me.

This beer pours a golden amber with a medium white head. The aromas are bread, alcohol and dough. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky and a little dry with a slight sweetness up front leading to a bitterness in the end. This was a good representation of the style. Cheers!
