3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear solar yellow with a thick and fairly persistent eggshell head. Aroma delivers zesty fresh malt riding fruity and hoppy tones. Flavor not only ramps up the aroma’s offerings, it also tosses in more than a snip of honey. Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz, but this is still an enjoyable brew. Glückliches Oktoberfest!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yadda yadda yadda. Pale yellow, average head, faint fruity and yeasty esters, a tiny bit of hop tingle on the finish. Also, it annoys me that these German beers are bottled in the metric system and translate to 11.2 ounces instead of the 12 ounces I am used to as a by-God ’Merican. If I’m gonna drink a beer I don’t really enjoy, I want there to be a lot of it.
