3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Bavarian Grille. Pours a deep amber color with a quickly disapating white head. aroma is of sweet caramel and sugar. Taste is also sweet, i compare it to biting into a caramel apple. leaves a nice smooth finish with a touch of bitter that works to even this out. this was very refreshing. this could have gotten cloying, but finished well.

Pours a brown/amber color with a fine head. Aroma is sweet malt. Flavor starts toasty and caramel malt with a dry herbal finish. I will be having several more of these to sort out which of the style are my favorite. Sometimes a brew makes you rethink and redrink something from your past. This is one of those. Quite pleasant.

Classic Octoberfest taste and appearance. Nice amber color and good aroma, but overall a bit thin, although very drinkable.

Clean amber. Light head. Soft malt aroma. Rounded malty flavour. Not much to distinguish it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Caramel, roastiness in the aroma but farily restrained. Pours an amber brown, thin tan head. Listless flavour with slight caramel. Thin palate. Transported overseas and may not have survived the journey in good shape.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet syrupy aroma. A terrific sweet malty taste. Couldn’t exactly place what it was, nutty or woody. This was great. Another winner from Paulaner!

Looks copper in color with a medium off white head. A nice crisp malty taste. Smells sweet, tastes sweet, overall a good beer with no distinct flavor.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A mellow honey of a beer with a copper-orange glow and light lacing. The aroma is like fresh clover honey that makes its presence in the flavor as well. The flavor is also light-bodied and could be described as Salvator Light. The malty smooth flavors of prune and apricot are present but require searching. The hops leave just a touch of bitterness that quickly dissipates. All in all, a well balance example of the style that is a bit lighter than others I’ve tried. but has a very nice quietness about it. This beer would taste best on a cool spring or autumn night when camping solo on the edge of a tranquil lake that reflects a sky laced with a billion stars.

Pours an amber brown with a lacing white head. Smells of sweet malts. The beer I had seemed to be past its prime, though.
