(Sep 21, 2005) Bottle. Dissapointingly pale, with a thin head. Yeasty, doughy aroma. Soft, clean, malty, slightly sour taste.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I love Oktoberfest/Marzen beers and this is a wonderful example. It is copper-amber with a huge off-white head that lasts a long time and leaves good lace. The aroma is caramelly malty grain, cooked rice, dry grass, hints of pine and herb. The taste is caramlyl malty grain, strong and full but still light and tingly in feel, with an active palate, clear herbal and nutty bitterness, more bitter than usual for the style and just enough to make it more interesting. This is simply wonderful

0,5 litre bottle @ the billet. Aroma of Coriander and honey, golden amber in appearance, tastes very very hoppy for a beer of this style. Sweet and quaffable as it should be.

Bottle. Clear yellow with white head. Large aroma in the beginning but it fades out. The aftertaste lingers for a while. Sweet and hay.

Draft at Dunderbachs. Poured a medium golden yellow body with thin head. Aroma is malt, crisp and light hops, caramel. Flavor is a light mixture of malt, and caramel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Surprisingly sour aroma but some grassy hops also.
Full and malty flavour. Sweetish for my taste but it has the body to carry it. Mild, almoust vague hops in the finish but the aftertaste lingers and they even feel stronger after that mouthful is gone down. Interesting. I’d give this a second chance.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
The flavour is sweet, almost cloying. The bitterness is OK throughout the whole experience, but IMO it’s cloying, round sweetness is intrusive, and it lacks complexity.

No! I want some flavour in my beer please. How do they do that - this is beer with all traces of beer removed.

Stein at Weissgerber’s Gasthaus just outside Milwaukee. Dark amber with a small head that seems to continue through the 22 ounces. The aroma is mostly malt based. The flavor is malty, sweet, and a touch sour. The palate suited well, somewhat rich and cleansing. Overall, this was good with Thanksgiving meal.
