On Tap - Vanguard - Kinnikinnic Ave - Bayview/Milw - Pours brown, frothy tan head. Caramel malt, grassy aroma. Typical Oktoberfest taste profile but, unlike many US Oktoberfests, this has a slight dry finish which cleanses the palate of the sweet tendancy (the US versions tend to be too sweet for me). Light on the palate, drinkable, sessionable. Had just about sworn off Oktoberfests before this one.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Amber color and a small white head. A clean aroma with just a little malt. Malty taste with a little zing on the back end. Highly carbonated. Good...but not great.

Dark brown pour, mild head. Rich and strong malty nose, nice bitterness that finishes fast and watery.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Porvoon Paahtimo, Porvoo. Thought I had the wrong beer at first, as I wouldn’t call it amber. More like light gold. Clear with visible carbonation. Grainy malty smell not dissimilar to a macro lager, but it’s fresher. Sweet taste with a suggestion of candied orange peel. Long sweet finish. Yest and vanilla notes in the aftertaste. Not too bad but not the best Oktoberfest beer I’ve had. Just that little bit too cloying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber copper pour with a small white head. Aroma is metallic, some sweet malt. Flavor is also metallic with some sweet malt, mild fruits, maybe a hint of sassafras. Mouth feel is medium and silky with decent fizz. Finishes slightly malty but with a huge metallic twang.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malt and very light fruit. Taste is light malt up front with a mild hop finish. Low bitterness. Light body. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little bubbly but otherwise pretty average for a marzen.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It poured a burnt bronze body with some carbonation and a small head, no lace left on the glass. Aroma of sweet malts, flavor of tart malts almost like vinegar. Mouthfeel was adequate. Overall there are too many other oktoberfest beers out there that warrant my attention and money. Originally rated on 10/10/08
