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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Mallaskukko. Very pale golden, tight white head leaving dishwashing lace. Pretty sweet nose with little white bread, sawdust, pear and mint. Hints of alchohol in there too, clean and mild. Flavor has mild herbal notes, minerals, clean maltiness, pale and ESL-like. Strong and coarse carbonation, but the reasonably malty body covers some of that. I like ’em more toasty and caramelly, like the Ayinger Fest-Märzen, but this still drinks pretty easy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Sweet malty aromas but they were pretty weak. Basically all-malt flavors of bread and dough. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation and a crisp sweet finish. Overall a pleasant Oktoberfest but rather forgettable.

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.
