The bottle said 6 per cent, not the 5.7 shown on the site and who am I to argue with a brewery that produces some good,and some very good beers.This is one of the good ones,sweet but not overpowering.Crisp,refreshing taste with a maltiness that doesn't dominate.Low carbonisation and a pleasant aftertaste.A good example of a festival beer.

Not a bad Oktoberfest. I had this a while ago and it was very good out of the 16.9 oz. bottle, but beware as this does come in 12 oz. green ones.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
my rating is probably unfair for two reasons. 1)this is the first beer of this style I have tried, and 2)i discovered I hated this style of beer. very sweet fruity ethanol like smell. mine was misty and orange, like horse piss. it improves though as you progress through the glass. it tastes like malt liquor. i would not advise it unless you know what you are drinking (when i got it from the liquor store, i thought i was buying a standard lager).

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2003 Great original aroma, has very faint honey taste with a favorable fruity hop taste. Average appearance, but otherwise excellent brew.

Weird color, for one...gold! Malty body and of at least fair quality, but with more bite and less caramel than expected in a festbier. Almost (and I’m being conservative, as I really thinks it’s way out of style) a bohemian pilsner kind of malt body. Hops are fairly apparent, with a subtle crispness. I dunno....Lucy’s got some ’splainin’ to do about this one...

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The brewery has only itself to blame (green bottle) for the no doubt tarnished brew that reached me. The beer was golden bodied with a hefty head. When the head dissipated the top was unflatteringly patchy. The pislner aroma was somewhat stale to start, but gained some freshness points after extensive aeration. The flavor was rather blah malt that improved slightly with warming and aeration. For the most part, the beer taste was muddied and bordered skunky.

Bought in Münster, Germany. 6% on the label. Caramelaroma. Full bodied. malty flavor with tropical fruit, hops and caramel. Well made, fruity beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 Pours a pale golden color with a fizzy white head. Has a weak aroma with a hint of hops. The flavor is bland and grainy and the finish is mellow dry and dull. A disappointment from the country that created the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold color with minimal head. Good malt nose and ever so light hop flavor that fades toward bitter. I found it a nice very up front brew.
