COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2009 Very weak hay smell. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Pronounced hay flavor with a trace oflemon. Grass finish. Overly bitter for style. It doesn’t come close to measuring up to their wheats.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2008 White, three finger head with a beauty of a golden body. Very clean with a touch of citrus. Easy to go for a few of these.

imdownthepub (10327) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottled fro Asda, Leamington Spa. Yellow gold with light head. Light malty beer with just the faintest hints of spiciness lingering in the background. There is a citric, lemony foreground, some hops and a gentle carbonation. It’s fine and went well with a Chinese Takeaway.

Quietman (173) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Hazy gold.White head.Grassy citrus and doughy aroma.The flavor is somewhat bitter and tart something like grapefruit or lemon.Dry and smooth.Nice texture.Doesn’t really fit the style but pretty good nonetheless.

Goodgrief (1792) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Sept. 2007 - Pale golden color with little head and lacing. Aroma was pilsneresque. The flavor also was reminiscent of pilsner malts and the accompanying grassy hops, but with a silky smooth mouthfeel that is present in many a Weihenstephaner brew. A good afternoon sipping beer.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours a medium yellow color with a good white head and minimal lacing. First thought was, "Wow, this is not what I was expecting." Sweet yeasy honey aroma, with some herbal notes. Flavor is more of the same, with a slightly spicy finish. Not bad, but not what I had in mind when I bought it.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head. Malty aroma with notes of straw, grass and light caramel. Medium body. Flavor is similar to the aroma and rather light. Not to bad.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy golden with thick white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with fresh dough and honey and a light herbal and grassy touch. Flavor is malty, grainy, haylike and lightly fruity with a honey sweetness. Finish is more tangy and dry with just a faint hint of floral hops. Medium in body with a light carbonation. A pleasant experience although I’m concerned my bottle may have been a little older. I will try again.
