A pale golden lager with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet honey and yeast, clearly oxidized. In mouth, good malt with light german hops, definite signs of oxydation, cloying sweetness and chalky final. Bottle is one year old. BB 08/07

500ml Bottle- Attractive golden coloured with mild carbonation and a small head. The aroma is malty, yeasty and has a hint of banana and grapefruit. The taste has a pleasant zing and a mild hoppiness with grapefruit featuring again. Not bad for a beer of this type.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very zippy. Begins strong and spicy. Finish could be stronger. An average festbier!

Gold, small white head. Sweet vegetable malt aroma. I caught tomato initially. Taste has yeast and grainy malt, very restrained and slightly creamy. Slight bitterness. I’m struggling to find bad (or good) things to say about this beer. Tomorrow I will have forgotten it.

Bottled. pale golden in color, minor white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. The flavour is swwt and has a mild and appealing taste. Like a promise of the summer to come (after winter).

Klassiker - med en del maltsødme, let humle, lidt karamel. Let drikkelig - men ikke ringe...

This is the standard for Oktoberfest Bier. Excellent color, very true to the style. Flavor is unmatched in festbiers. As others have said below, it is the best mass at Oktoberfest.

500ml bottle on couch at home. Bouquet of honey and grass. golden appearance with a white, not to stable, lacy head. it#s "herb" , but very refreshing and very very drinkable for a strong, as it should be, beer. round tasting, very well balanced stuff.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty uninteresting overall, some aromatic notes of almond essence and alchohol along with grain, good for thirst quinching, thats it for me.
