Slightly sweet with a firm malt backbone. Soft pils malt with some bready notes. Moderate hop bitterness. Balances the malt sweetness. Fairly dry finish considering the sweet malt. No esters. No hop aroma or flavor. Much better than most I’ve had

Bottle at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. I can take or leave this style - at best they tend to be fruity, big lagers. Which this is. Solid, metallic. Clean.

Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Crystal clear golden colour. Thin white head. Aroma is an almost honey like, sweet maltiness. There’s a little initial grassiness, too. Taste is well balanced, with a light hoppiness complementing the sweet malt nicely. Off dry finish. Nice beer.

1000ml on tap at Fischer Vroni tent at Oktoberfest. Aroma is light grassy and unspectacular. Appearance is golden with nice white foam. Taste is sour and very light sweet and bitter. A medium carbonation, light dry finish. Overall the least interesting Wiesn beer so far.

Surprisingly more ish. Clear lager that generates a somewhat subtle but slightly gassy taste. But enjoyable and something one could easily spend an evening in its company. A nice session beer that might be potent as the evening develops.

Purchased at a street vendor just outside of the Theresienwiese heading into Oktoberfest in Munich, DE. This was a great beer to drink on the street while watching the sh*t show unfold as hundreds of thousands of drunk people walk into each other while trying to get into one of the dozens of huge beer tents on the festival grounds. I didn’t pour it, enjoyed straight from the bottle. This went down with a light bitterness and a nice malt backing, and it was fresh. For the other merits, I can’t really say, but to me this was a pretty decent Oktoberfest brew.
