2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not much to this one. Gold, white head, aroma of grass and malt. Light spice and yeast with the hops to make it even lighter. Still better than a Budweiser, though not by much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice, lightly hoppy, very pilsner influenced oktoberfest, with a nice golden color, white head, and slightly spicy aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a nice floral aroma. Mild bitterness. Clear deep gold color. Reminds me of a pilsner in a way. A pleasant brew overall. Sweet but dry finish.

Best beer at Mt. Angel Oktoberfest, even if ridiculously overpriced. Nice light color body, with sweet malts balanced by some gentle hops, good head thats a pleasure to drink through, crisp, refreshing, I could drink a keg.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from a pilsner glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice clear golden color with crisp refreshing lager taste and finish, good brew!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Not bad for a buck (got it on sale, son). Pours a quickly fading head, clearish medium-yellow color, no lacing. Aroma isn’t great, I agree, but it smells pretty much like a festbier. Taste isn’t amazing, but proper for the style, and not as hoppy as other reviewers claim, in my opinion. Points for clean finish and drinkability - 12oz just isn’t the proper serving size for this beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden with a lasting, yet soapy, off-white head. Aroma is of spicy mittlefurh and fresh biscuits. The body is med. with med-lt. CO2. Somewhat sweet with a drying finsh. The flavors are beautiful, sweet biscuity malts. Some lemon-grass and pepper from the hops really rounds out an otherwise sweetish beer. The bitterness in the finish gives a very nice refreshment to this very palatable German brew. No SO2, no H2S, no diacetyl. I don’t really know what the rest of you want in a present day octoberfest. Really nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A light beer with a spicy wheat taste, somewhat similar to a weak marzen. A good blend of malts and hops.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head. Somewhat sweet aroma, bready, hint of malts. Flavor was pretty bland. Not at all like a typical Oktoberfest. Watery mouthfeel. Disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle served in dimpled mug. Frothy foam tops a pale yellow body. Pretty, sweet, wheat nose. Sweet light-medium bodied palate. Some sticky, light bitterness on the finish. The "Fest" isnt exactly like standard domestic Christmas fare, but it isn’t a bad brew nonetheless.
