lovely malty, hoppy beer with a good balance. sweet in the beginning bitter in the end. banana in the finish. full body but not sticky. a pity that i’ve got only 1 bottle.

(Bottle 50 cl) Reddish golden, with lovely malty notes throughout. Some malty sweetness well balanced by the hops in a moderate bitterness. A very harmonic beer. 021199

Very simillar to the heifweissbier from paulaner, slightly spicey in aroma and taste though a little thin and watery for my tastes. Good alround session beer could do with a little more though.

A very good beer that offered some nice aroma and flavor. Features some slight sweetness on the palate and a warmth in the aftertaste.

This Oktoberfest brew is not on par with Spater or Hacker but it is definitely drinkable with a slight hoppy, smooth finish.

First taset on the palate is sweet. Has a slight coffee smell and taste. (Weird) The coffee taste is more in the finish. Great flavor. I REALLY LIKE THIS ONE

Picked this up on a whim while searching for something new because i liked everything else I had from Paulaner. Low expectations because of past encounters with "oktoberfests". Turned out to be a tasty and enjoyable brew to open after a long day at work. Dark golden with a creamy head which vanished after a while. Excellent malty flavor, faintly sweet, faintly hoppy, and faint bitter finish. Thick and chewy in the mouth; perfectly balanced for an "anti-hop-head" like me. Totally unexpected, but I loved it. Yes I see everybody else rates it lower but I dont care. Excellent!!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Musty aroma. Some initial head but nothing to look at. Suitable Above average carbonation, some malts and some bitterness and astringency in finish, with dry bitter aftertaste that’s best part.

Golden in color, with little head. Aroma is sweet hops. Clean on the taste with bubbles to finish. I just love the bubbles.
