Oktoberfest beer. Standard German beer. Nothing crazy here. Small head, easy to drink. Not too bad.

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 8, 2011
Hopfiger und hell-malziger Antrunk in ansprechender Süße. Im Mittelteil bleibt das Malz hell-würzig und wirkt minimal alkoholisch, Hintergründig fruchtig. Die Aromen nehmen im Abgang spürbar ab, die Süße heftet sich nun an einen verbleibenden Herbeton. Leicht hopfig. Süffig! Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,11,13,11,12,11 - 11,35

Bierkrug (2130) - - DEC 6, 2010
Part of the Great Munich Beer Raid 2010. 500 ML bottle in Germany. Pours a clear-yellow gold. White quick to leave hwhite head. Aroma is fresh, soft and slightly dry malts. Nice true to form and not too sweet as others of the style Palate is also soft and it is extremly drinkabie, A nice soft ending and a good Helles..

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2009
Bottled A pale gold coloured beer with a fair amount of chill haze and a tiny off white head. A decent noble hop nose and then a good balanced taste of malt and hop. Not buttery which I find helles can be. Instead nicely drinkable with good flavour levels.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2009
Bottled, 500ml, 5.7% as Premium Festbier from Westholme Stores, Goring, Oxon. Hazed yellow gold with slight white head. Initially quite light, a little sweet with a gentle fruity citric note, it becomes a little more assertive through the beer giving more fruitiness and a touch of hop spiciness. Reasonable without ever really getting going.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle from Carringtons, Manchester. Light gold with rapidly diminishing white head. Slight hint of fruit in the nose. Undistinguished taste - nothing you can clearly label. Slightly sharp finish. Uninspired and boring, I’m struggling to finish this.

Bottle (5.7%). Light gold with a white head. Aromas are hay with citrus. Nutty with spices, quite dry. Flavours are sweet biscuit malts with floral notes. Woody and floral with some smokiness. Dry on the finish. Decent.

johndoughty (4986) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle. Quite sweet with plenty of body. Medium pleasant texture and low carbonation. Clear appearance and easy to drink apart from being a little too sweet for my taste. A nice example of this type of beer.
