COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

Leighton (13956) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2010
Tap at Barcade. I really enjoyed this beer. I think, though, that this beer style is a bit undervalued by many raters. Obviously this doesn’t match up against an imperial stout. This beer was well-balanced between the hops and malts and had a smooth finish. Pleasant aftertaste. Great sessioner.

Nothing special about this one. A little malty, and for some reason a bit of fruit in there as well.

Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Tap at Victory, Downington PA - 25/05/12. Dark amber with white head. Sweetish malts at the fore of the nose, backed up by a little hops and straw. Taste follows nose with a little fruit and a puff of smoke in the mix. Medium bodied decent representation of the style.

Lubiere (11155) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2007
A hazy lager, with orange amber colour and a light thin off white head. A sweet caramel aroma, with light fruity esters. In mouth, a lightly spiced sweet nutty malt, bready, with faint hopping. A quaffable beer. Bought in the Fall 2006.
