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!

A yellow straw color with a thin white head that had nice retention. Aroma was of mainly corn notes but had some lingering sweetness. Flavor was similar to a pale lager with mostly unpleasant corn-like malt notes. Finish was watery.

Poured rather pale lemon tending orange colour with a reasonable snow white head that dissapates rather quickly. Aromas are dominated by sweet fruit (mainly citrus) with some grainy malt coming into play also. Palate shows more of the same, with the grainy malt adding an almost flinty character (IMO) Rather light palate is served well by the dry finish, that perhaps lacks penetration due to the extremely low bitterness, which i suppose the style requires. I can see why this is their Oktoberfest brew, its really drinkable!

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma is malt and grain faintly reminiscent of the style. Taste is a weaker version of your normal Oktoberfest. It’s good, but it’s not quite among the great.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear medium yellow with a 2 finger snow white head and spotty ;acing. Nose is malt, grassy hops and grain. Taste is light citrus, sweet malt and a touch of spice with a dry pilsner finish. Medium mouth feel. Decent – easy drinker.

I FOUND THE BEER TO BE SOMEWHAT FLAVORFUL like beer and a bit like seven up but not bad really! cloudy with adequate malt and barley character and a mildly fruity and citrus like flavor, welll anyway i enjoyed it out amongst the folks here in nyc on this fine evening! caramel sweetness fits in nice here and with the barely cool breeze. drinkable and has a decent body. and a nice hop though light finish.

Yellow. Big creamy head. Aroma: German hops, sweet malts, honey. Flavor: Same but almost like a Pilsner. Clean finish.

illidurit (2270) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Clear light gold color with a frothy white head. Good retention and lacing. Toasted straw and grain aroma with Saaz hop spiciness. Munich maltiness, some nice moderate sweetness with a citrus/lemongrass hoppiness that provides balance. Mouthfeel is great, carbonation is soft but adequate, body is medium-thin but full-flavored, drinkability is excellent.

(bottle) pours a clear, pale golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of grassy hops, light pale malts, caramel and sweetcorn. super-light flavour of grainy malts and hops. medium carbonation and body.

much lighter than i expected in body and taste. grass hops and grain in the aroma. very similar to a pils in some ways. taste is some good caramel and bread to match the light but defined hops in the finish.
