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!

Hazy yellow, thick white head, nice retention. Off / iron taste in palate, dry light hoppy finish, simple and boring lager.

Banana yellow with a small white head. Aroma of malt, toasted malt, dust and skunk. Taste of malt, nuts and toasted malt. Finish is sweet and off. Pretty bad example of the style.

Crushed with Jakebra. Soft fruity nose coming out of a cloudy, pee-colored beer. Confused. This brew is pretty aight, though one would assume the "world’s oldest brewery" would know a thing or two about beer.

Pours pale gold with a full white head. Aroma is muted - maybe some wet breadiness. Taste is sweet pale malt - some caramel and mild hops.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2008
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.
