3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Bright-golden colour, under fluffy yellowish head. Maltbomb, with toasted aroma and bit grainy underbuild. Bit almondy flavour, and typical pale and lightly toasted malts. Light, with a background stickyness; certainly not empty. Quite doable, but I can’t figure myself downing litres of this stuff four hours.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a finger-thick white head over a clear, golden body. Some tropical fruits in syrup on the nose, with pale malts and some grass. Hayish, perfumed touch. Grainy, hayish, fruity, slightly syrupy nose with some bitterness. A bit sweetish maybe, finishing sweet and bitter. Would like more bitterness though. Overall it’s a bit on the sweet side, but it’s a drinkable beer indeed. 091010

Draft @ Monster B’s. Sweet smelling beer that’s well balanced and refreshing. Slight floral hop flavor. Nothing spectacular, but solid.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned sample. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of pale malts, minerals, booze, and vegetal hops. Flavor wise, there are elements of white bread dough, loads of minerals (practically like licking wet rocks) and more veggie + peppery hops. Medium bodied. Very unlike anything other oktoberfests I’ve had in that it’s not all that bready, nutty, or caramelly. More like a suped up helles to be honest. Fairly drinkable, but smells and tastes more boozy than it really is. Average at best.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold with a white head. Aroma is grassy and light malt. Not much going on in the flavor besides the grassy hops and a light biscuit malt profile. Boring and unworthy. It was easy to swig though, so if you want to do that then this might be up your alley.

Bottle, 50cl - Clear dark golden color with a large white head. Aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and grass. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel and some German hops. Pretty nice and balanced.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 50 cl. Drank it with a friend while sitting in the garden on a nice evening. Pours copper with big white head and an aroma of sweet grain. The taste is mellow, but not in a bad way. Not too sweet, not too hoppy. Some sweet malts, some grassy hops, but all very smooth. Not too special, but I guess it’s a good session-beer.
