PalCabral (132) - - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget Bavarian six pack. Pours straw blond with a frothy bubbly head that settles to a slight vail. Much too pale for a festbier in my opinion. Aroma is malty and grainy, nice. Taste is malty and alcoholic, followed up by lingering bitterness. Helles Bock comes to mind and I think the dear peeps at Irlbacher have mixed up Oktoberfest/Märzen beer with Helles Bock, for some obscure reason. Not a favorite.

Heller, mild süß herber Antrunk. Hellmalzig, süffig. Südlich hopfig, die leichte Klebrigkeit ist typisch für deutsche Festbiere. Nettes rundes Bier! 9/11/10/10/8/11

olsvammel (3803) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget (mixpack). Midl smell that reminds me of sticking my nose in a bag of freshly ground malt. Similar taste. A metallic note draws down the points quite allot for me.
