3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber with a small white head. The aroma is a strong mix of bread dough and caramel. Clean flavor with a balanced finish that lends a bit of lingering caramel. Somewhat thin for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nutty, slightly bready aroma with milld, floral hops and some malted grain. It pours a light mahogany without much of a head. The mouthfeel is more vigorous than the beer visually portends. The taste is gentle, nutty malts and a nice hop bitterness. Nice and sessionable.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, citrus och toner av örter. Lagom sötma, jämn och rund kropp. Fin beska. Ett bra oktoberfestöl.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget Majorna (Göteborg). BB 11 JUL 2015, sampled on October 17, 2014.
Clear to perhaps a tad bit hazy deep golden to amber to pale copper oxide color. Smallish teal head that leaves some lacing on the side of the glass. Mainly malty and grainy scent, sort of raw grains, a bit to the dry and acidic side. Dry, malty, sweet, grainy, grassy, herbal, light bitter taste. Some bitterness, grainy, light acidic, dare I say some stomach bile/puke aftertaste. Medium to fizzy, to the high side CO2 mouthfel, medium to medium high rather dry and mineral like bitterness. Some floral stems, solvent like almost harsh bitterness, rather resin like green feel to it. Some sand and wet stones mixed with cabbage and dandelion leaves. Lots of garden greens and not so much herbal richness. The hops does come through some, but are shadowed by a lot of not so well implemented characteristics. Not for me, and I wouldn’t go for German style either, just not something I’d go out for again, as for always per my personal taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ganska söt och en aning fadd. Hyfsat i linje med typen, men inte heller någon riktigt höjdare.
