Keg @ De Hens, Chinatown. Damned expensive! Mild softly fizzy beer with an alcohol strength noticeable in the malt. Nothing else distinguishes this strong lager. No character. No finesse.

Bottle. Yellowish golden colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma of hay, hops and weak malt. Flavour is hoppy and grassy, with some hints of sweet malt. Dry finish and hayish hoppy aftertaste. Uninteresting and watery.

Keg at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Pale gold colour, with thin white head. Herby, hop nose, lager style body with some deadish malt. Finish has more herby dry hop which is quite aggressive

Not the most exciting type of beer (IMHO) but this is one of the most enjoyable Oktoberfest biers I have tried to date. Very malty and highly drinkable.

Bottle - import. Imagine my surprise to find this beer in small (WAY!) town New Mexico. Been a LONG time since Munchen ’91, but this one brings it back wonderfully. Not as hoppy as the Arrogant Bastards would like (thank god!), but just fine by me. Warm, earthy, bold yet mild, and smoky. All things autumn, German, solid, and workmanlike. If you’ve been there, you know. Early fall, warm afternoons, crisp mornings and evenings that hint of what’s to come. SIMPLY CLASSIC!
