20th review on BA
Bottle poured to pint glass

App- Straw colored yellow. Very thin head that left almost instantly. Left no lacing at all.

Smell- Smells a bit skunky like all german beers do. Its hard to pick up on a lot of scents in the glass. It's very hard to discern this from a lot of other German Macro lagers.

Taste- Slightly malty and a bit yeasty all at the same time. Has a taste of bread to me. Its crisp in the first sip then gets a little bitter.

Mouth- Leaves a slight taste on the back of the tounge. Its very light with very little carbonation to speak of.

Drink- Pretty decent but not up to the standards of the other very good Oktoberfest beers that I have had.

500 ml bottle from LCBO poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Brilliant golden color, nice white creamy head with about 1.5 fingers of head that lingers for awhile. Minimal lacing left on the glass.

Smell - Mild malts mostly some form of grainy element and definitely a sweetness as well. Hops virtually invisible.

Taste - Bready grains are most evident, as well as the sweetness which is a bit too strong, faint hop presence and mild bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Definitely a rich feel , lower carbonation. A bit syrupy and doesn't quite have the crisp clean finish that other styles present. Nonetheless the richness makes this an attractive sipping beer.

Overall - A tasty beer, but the sweetness while not artificial I find is a bit overdone.
