2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
WarPours very clear oranges yellow with a nice soapy thick off-white head. Aroma is corn and caramel malts and noble hops. Taste largely follows but is quite weak for a Fest. More like a slightly malt-amped traditional German lager. Slight hop bitterness to close. Drinkable if you like German lagers, but not memorable.

Six pack gift. I’m not an Oktoberfest fan but I enjoyed these beers. Clean, crisp malty marzen flavor. Clear light gold color.

Wenig würziger, trocken herber Antrunk. Langweilig malzig mit geringfügig steigender Tendenz, herber Nachhall. Belanglos. 7/7/6/6/9/6

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BBD 6/8/16. Pours a clear golden. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Rather weak nose of light biscuit and light hops.
Medium body with a smooth texture that has some creamy aspects. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding due to it’s total absence of off flavors and perfect balance. Intensity lacks a bit and this beer is not very complex. It begins with a slightly sweet biscuit base that has some grainy aspects, but is not cracker like. Soft subtle pear notes float over biscuit. The middle brings a soft herbal hop flavor and bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of the middle with subsiding biscuit and a hint of alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body with a thin yet clinging white head. Inviting aroma of malt and caramel sweetness. The palate is smooth and clean but a little thin. Nice clean taste with the malt taking center stage. There is a slight hoppy bite at the end. A good, very drinkable Octoberfest.

Clear golden, bubbly, with a white head. Malt and yeast aroma. Mild hop character, a little earthy. Not bad.

.5L draft on tap at Gustavs. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity biscuit nose. Sweet toasted malts, caramel, light fruit. Very dough like sweet. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice, clean amber body with white head. Aroma is faint, with subtle sweetness. Taste is strong, sweet grains and roast caramel, a little too front loaded. Finish is mostly clean with some bitterness. Not what I was expecting and a bit disappointed.
