COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

badwhale (369) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle to glass pint. Pours a clear amber color with a decent off white head. I can’t describe the smell, but it’s not appealing to me. Flavor is very....not much. Maybe sweet skunky malt. Bleh.

jann3 (111) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Pours clear golden with a decent head, that leaves nice lacing. Aroma has fruity maltiness with some yeast and bitterish citrus and grass notes. Taste is sweetish and malty with dryish and grassy finish. Medium CO2, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel. A nice one. (0,5 bottle, best before 08/2015)

Cool_Bond (1445) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2014
Even a malty beer with hints of citrus on the nose. Malty, barley, and wheat in taste. Weak bitterness which fills the lower part of the mouth of a weak moment. Not at all impressive. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
