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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle@Home. Faint grainy aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, good lace. Sweet, grainy, light bitter, little sticky and soft mouthfeel. This is too clean and too boring.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ein kraftvolles Bier mit leckerem Malz-Hopfen-Einschlag. Der Alk.-Gehalt ist nicht ansatzweise heraus zu schmecken. Die Süffigkeit für diesen Stoff ist phänomenal!

Color is a dark golden-honey, and has a velvety head. Not much aroma to speak of beyond simple hops and malts. Flavor is a nice blend of hops and malts with a hint of caramel with a mellow finish.

Bottle. Yellow with white head. Hay as for the other oktoberfest beers. Some sweet and low on hops. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2008 Straw coloured, head nearly disappears but leaves a little lacing. Feint aroma of soft grain and perhaps a touch of grassy hops.
The flavour is soft and smooth grains, light although quite full on the palate. Still, I found it monotonous, one dimensional and boring.
Re-Rate: For I found interesting bubblegum notes in it. Not that it turned my opinion around but it warranted raising Fl and Oa by 1 each to 5 and 9 respectively.

A dark golden beer with a white head. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Taste is malty and sweety, notes of hops. Very well balanced. Drinkable but tasteful.
