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!

Light yellow color. Sweet caramel aroma. The taste is sweet, can detect some honey and spice. Carbonation hits you on the back end. This has a much lighter taste than your normal Ocktoberfest.

0,5l on tap. Clear yellow with white head. Aroma is rich malty, a bit of caramel and some herbal hops notes. Moderately sweet. Body is medium with average carbonation. Finish is quite dry with long pronounced bitterness and some tarty notes. I also sensed a bit of metallic aftertaste.

mmmbeer (1390) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2016
12 oz. bottle from 6’er poured into a shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow color, razor thin white head with several frog eyes on the surface. Aroma of "Euro-hops" and wheat. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is very refreshing and definitely tastes more like a lager than a Marzen, middle holds up well, finish is crisp and refreshing. Hey, it was free- old lady brought it home with her from work since she held some sales rep with a big contract- nice!

Clear straw colored pour. Aroma and taste are classic marzen. Sweet biscuit. Not bad. Not my favorite style.

Thought this was a hefeweisen when I smelled it. Smells like bananas. Sort of sweet corn flavor and slight bitterness. A good lager style beer. Would drink again.

hershiser2 (2068) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2016
$2.25 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours clear gold with only the dusting of a head. Aroma of fall: grasses, browning leaves. Flavor is malted grasses, autumn leaves, mild corn, slightly sweet grains. Very drinkable.

Dorado limpio y espuma blanca. Aromas de cereal, ligero floral y sulfuroso suave. Cuerpo ligero y sabor como en aroma con final seco y sulfuroso equilibrado.

Kauge (1591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle from Sip. BB 22.06.2017. Pours pale golden, clear body with a bit of floaties. Good off-white head that retains and laces nicely. Straw aroma with grassy hops, pretty nice. Tastes of malts (loads of cereal notes), with dry and grassy bitterish finish. Very dry on the palate, with thin but active carbonation, and - as advertised - rich body. Simple but well made. I’d love this to be available year-round if I were a lager guy.

Clear, golden colored, medium white long lasting head, nice lacing. Aroma is of malt, some grains, light honey, herbal and grassy. Taste is medium sweet malt, grains, light butter and more honey, medium- herbal grassy bitterness. Medium- bodied, soft carbonation, bit creamy.

11.2 oz. bottle. Clear straw color with a white head. Nose of biscuit, hay, light malts. Taste follows nose, with some fruitiness and sweetness. Mildly bitter, crisp finish. Very drinkable.
