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: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with white head. A lot of sweet honey character in the aroma along with white bread crust. Taste follows the nose exactly, slightly on the sweet side but overall quite balanced. Light body and carbonation is also pretty low, which I like. Alcohol is not detectable at all, making it very easy to drink. Probably on of the best Märzen beers I ever had.

smaynard6000 (975) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a sparkling golden color with average-sized white head. Carbonation is lively. Sweet malty aroma with grain notes and a bit of fruitiness. Quite sweet, a bit too much for me. Light bodied. Not as good as I had hoped it would be.

Pale straw pour with a white head. Aroma is a sweet corn and the taste is sweet with a tiny bit of bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. A: Clear gold with a thin white head. N: Malt, grist, some soap, toffee, earth, white peppercorn, coriander, some bark. T: Big sweetness with a touch of bitterness. Clean. M: Light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol. O: Easy drinking Oktoberfest. I prefer Aigner by a good amount and the Sierra Nevada, too.

tomer (2898) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 8, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2015 Bottle, small creamy head, clear intense gold color, aroma of biscuit and light honey, biscuity flavor with some honey and an empathic medium bitterness, medium bodied. Drinkable but just a little too sweet.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - OCT 8, 2015
Pale golden with an average creamy and sticky head. Flavour is bready and grassy. Taste is medium sweet with a very light bitter finish. Average to low carbonation and oily to watery. Some say it is close to the original Helles but I found this one much blander, with much less hops. I would have to drink them side by side. Maybe because it was not as warm as when I drank the Helles. So I did not appreciate it in the same way. That pretty much sums up how able I am to rate a beer...Difficult not be biased by weather or mood or whatever.

Noble hops, clear lager smell in the nose. Clear golden with thick frothy head. Great lager, very smooth and balanced. People who rate this beer low don’t know what they talking about or just centered on hoppy ipas.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, malt, light spice. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
