Nice oktoberbier from Slottskällans! Pretty similar to their Decennium Bock Bier.

Light amber color with a nice big white head. The head lasts 'til the beer is finished.

I really like the smell of this one, some nuts and some sweet maltiness, pretty interesting smell.

The taste is basically the same as the smell. There aesome strange tones of vegtables though, but they don't desturb very much.

The colour is pale amber; the off white head sinks down to a finger thick layer with a fizzing sound.

The smell is malty with quite a lot of sour-bitter fruity hops with chemical hints of plastic and rubber (Fuggles?).

The taste is also surprisingly hoppy for an Oktoberfest: Notes of earthy matured fruits, minerals, plastics. There are also some mild sweet flavours of lightly roasted malt. The aftertaste is quite short with some lightly sour hoppy flavours.

The carbonation is medium-strong; medium sized fresh bubbles. The liquid is a little creamy.

A fine beer, but just a decent Oktoberfestbier; too much hops…

This one is the 2007 version of their octoberfest beer.

Light red color and with a slim not lasting white head.

Smells of white bread, some fudge/caramel and fruity hops.

Tastes of malts, nuts, caramel. Some fruity notes as well.

Medium carbonation.

An ok beer. But I will probably not buy it again.

Nice golden color with a quite small white head (maybe I chosed the wrong glass...).

Smell is hoppy with citrus, slightly of malt.

Taste is hoppy with notes of citrus, some fruityness and slightly of sweet malt.

The mouthfeel is nice; filling and "round character".

Drinkability is quite high due to a quite low ABV. A good "Monday beer".
