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!

Golden color, aroma of earth, grass and leaves. Similar taste but sweet with toasted malt. Not a bad Oktoberfest flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drank out of glass had large white head. Has a hazy color of yellow or gold. Has almost a Earthy flavor to to go with the grassy wheat smell followed by a similar aftertaste.

Garrold (1154) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Tap at Pivni, York. Clear as a bell golden. Big, white head. Bready aroma. Some fruitiness and toasty maltiness. (Is that a real word?). A little spiciness too. Sweetness on the finish.

ON TAP. Head: white, medium, creamy, avg. retention. Colour: pale yellow, clear. Aroma: very faint malty aroma. Taste: dry, malty, moderate bitterness with a peppery finish. Quite disappointing; would expect more malty and hoppy character.

VinegarStroke (267) - Napa, California, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle 50cl: clear, clear, pale yellow gold. Light white frothy head. Light malted estery nose. Slight stale bottle or green hops edge or something flat. ,edium light sweetness. Low bitterness and not sour. Nice medium weight. Balanced and fresh but sweet finish. Refreshing bit with depth and length. More subdued and technical than envy thing you would see from the US.

Bottle from Blue Max, crystal clear golden pour, fizzed out of the bottle. Aroma of grain, bready and a bit of sweet corn. Taste is mostly grain and mouth feel is a bit sharp from carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamesthebrit (238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2013
A: Wheaty. Almost a little stale funk: No bottled on date but I would think since it’s a seasonal it would be fresh? A: Looks nice. Light. Bubbles are fun in the weisen glass. Light rice gold. T: Tastes better than it smells, but nothing mind blowing. A subtle wheaty note. Super light. Easy drinking. A little funky. A little sweet finish. Balanced... but also very light. So take that for what it is. P: Light. Watery. Little flavor development. Carbonation is smooth and spot on though. Overall this is a rather boring beer. Nothing wrong but it is super super light. Drinks a bit too much like water. It goes down smooth but at what cost? I would have to think this would be an excellent choice for "das boot"

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness, fresh grain and mild citrus in the background. Taste of a light malt sweetness, some grain and bit of citrus in the background. Has a mild bitterness and a very clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp, clean and quite refreshing. Has a nice balance. Enjoyable beer for the style. It looks a bit like a typical Oktoberfest, but it is still quite flavorful

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Aroma: Really reminds me more of a Helles or even a Pilsener- the nose is met by noble, grassy hops with some slightly sweet grains. Appearance: Bright, transparent gold body with a solid, bubbly white head. Flavor: More full flavored than the nose suggests; the sweetness of the malts linger a bit more than the initial hop character and concludes with a pervasive dryness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Not the beer to buy if you are looking for a more typical Oktoberfest, but a nicely done lager of the German tradition.

Daytonbeer (638) - Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours clear light yellow with white head and no lacing. Aroma of malts and very light smoke. Taste is malty with more hops than I expected. Also a little skunky.
