2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of corn tortillas. Reminds me of walking in to a Mexican Grocery Store. Tastes okay but had a tough time getting past the nose.

Aroma is toasted bread and caramel mixed with Eurolager skunkiness. Ugly pour, coming out a decent orange-gold but giving up a fizzy, brief head with no lace. Taste is better than the nose, full of rich caramel sweetness, buttered biscuits, and mild apple esters, but the skunky floral bitterness on the back end reeks of bad green-bottled German beer, leaving a vegetal aftertaste that clashes with the sweetness on the front. Good feel, lively but creamy. Still a little too old-school European Oktoberfest for my tastes. Rumbero (86) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Aroma: toasted bready malts and subtle caramel sweetness. herbal hop aroma notes.
Appearance: medium amber, almost copper with a nice half inch off-white head with good retention. bright clear.
Flavor: bready, caramelly, malt sweetness smoothly balanced by herbal noble hop bitterness. no hop derived flavors.
Palate: body is medium, texture creamy, moderate carbonation and mild to low astringency. the finish is short and moderately dry with lingering mild waves of bitterness.
Overall: very nice. so smooth that adventurous craft drinkers might find it uninteresting. a classic style. dig it.

No idea why this is rated so high. tastes like leinenkugel oktoberfest but worse. thin and watery, mild skunk, very little flavor at all. sessionable tho i guess. DenverLogan (1228) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 26, 2016
From a new bottle...different label than in the photo above. Pours gold amber with small head and lace. Aroma of malt, grains, slight wet laundry. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of pale malts, grains, grassy hops, hay, light field herbs, minerals. I’ve been drinking this beer since around 1980 and it’s bee consistently respectable as a German Oktoberfest.

Aroma: 6 not too skunky, but a nice grassy aroma of Saaz
Appearance: 4 Nice white creamy head, golden, a bit to the greener side than reddish. Still, nice looking for the style.
Taste: 6 Grassy, malty, biscuits, better than expected.
Palate: 2 Thin, nothing exciting.
Still struggle to understand why this is a special style on its own. Ordinary pale lagers.

Taste: Robust malt, semi sweet, smooth, some floral hop notes. Complex nose with hops and nutty malt sweet nose. Deep Amber/Gold color, clear with a nice foam head and average lace. Medium, almost full body. On tap beats in bottle any day. Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2016
