This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

Very pale golden with a white head, poor retention. Very sweet malty aroma, maybe some very light honey and green spicy hops. Flavour is quite weak, with alcohol and sweet caramel malt and nut liqueur. The finish is also quite alcoholic, very average.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB Aug 07). Pale golden. Reasonably full malts and pleasantly clean grassy hop finish. Not too much going on but balanced and quite drinkable.

I’m kinda wondering what year this was.... no clue of date. Not impressive sourish malt aroma Nice head cream colored lasted a short while.. Nice lacing. Sorta lemony sour malt taste, with bad sour-bitter aftertaste. I think this is worth once a year, but not much more.

Dedollewaitor (14485) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2006
Yellow see through (pilsner look) with little white head. Aroma of pilsner malts and easy hops. Easy fruityness & easy spice. Little Watery texture. Short slight hoppy finish. Average!

No head, fizzy golden-amber, sour spicy sting. Skunk started here. This one needs to be consumed fresh.

Looks like a pale lager, smells like a pale lager and sure tastes like a pale lager. And it leaves a real nasty cloying feel in my mouth.

It’s amazing that I love Franziskaner so much, cuz the Doppelbock and this left much to be desired (and this on draft, nonetheless). Somewhat off aroma, some grass, some earthiness. The pour was nice an amber with a nice thick head that thinned out but laced well. The flavor was bready and somewhat spiced and the alcohol was detectable. Some grass in there too (not my cup of tea). Mouthfeel was fairly standard.
