2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
24 pack from Costco, bought on 01-Sep.
Malty sweet, almost caramelly aromas with no hop aroma. Color is spot on and brilliant but the carbonation is too low for style. Taste is malty-caramelly, too much for my taste; hop bitterness is low as is the flavor. Finish is medium sweet.
Not my favorite style.

Tap at MacGregors. Deep amber, clear, medium head. Malty nose, light caramel, just a bit of hop, grassy and a touch of citrus. Sweet, rich malt, less caramel than the color would suggest, but enough. Rather straightforward. Low hop, but rich and tasty.

Für mich recht Standart. Nicht schlecht nicht herausragend alles sehr glatt gezogen. Etwas grasig ein wenig Getreide. Im Geschmack auch recht frisch hopfig. Abgang ist kurz und mildwürzig.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BBD 5/16. Pours a clear amber that is rather brown. Outstanding head volume and retention, normal lacing.
Light, but typical, Oktoberfest nose. Light biscuit, a touch of caramel and light grassy hops.
Heavy light body that has a smooth texture with a few creamy aspects. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a reasonable prickly finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with light biscuit that flows into caramel that hints at sweetness. As the middle approaches, a light nuttiness is noted. The middle brings a subtle hop flavor and bitterness, mostly herbal. The finish is somewhat crisp and has a very slight mineral quality as the hop, caramel and nutty grains slowly fade.
