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!

12oz picked up today at the COOP.. Poured into my small hefe glass 2" foamy head.. the brew is crystal clear straw golden. Nose is grainy pale malts with some very light spicy hoppiness... This is a pretty damn nice helles.. but completely in the wrong category for an octoberfest. Flavor mirrors the nose. pils malt with spicy/lightly floral hoppiness...

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a cloudy yellow color. Has a wood like aroma with some light malt. Light body beer with some good hop character to it. Mostly empty finish. Overall a good, easy drinking beer, but nothing spectacular.

Best beer at Mt. Angel Oktoberfest, even if ridiculously overpriced. Nice light color body, with sweet malts balanced by some gentle hops, good head thats a pleasure to drink through, crisp, refreshing, I could drink a keg.

Bottles at Brian’s place. How haven’t I had this? Anyway, pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A big fresh hoppy and sweet toasted malt nose. The flavor is wonderful: fresh spicy hops, toffee, sweet toasted malts, a bit of berries. Super flavorful and easy. Lovely.

Bottle. Clear straw. Fast dissipating white frothy head. Muted bread yeast, banana and lemon blossom aromas. Banana and bubblegum to begin, followed by some mid palate bitterness and a long, sweet but crisp finish. Great with pork belly, sauerkraut and in multiples.

11.2 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Bright golden clear appearance with an average white head and active carbonation. Aroma of pale malts, noble hops, earthy notes, bread, light yeast and a touch of fruitiness. Similar flavor, mild bitterness and light sweetness. Very clean, crisp and easy to drink. A nice rendition of a style I’m not crazy about. Prost!

Well rate beer took me to this alias beer but my bottle clearly says oktoberfest. Aroma smell of caramelized malt with a good sweetness. The color is on the pale golden side where most beers of this style I have seen are towards the amber orange side. The taste those is delicious light on the hops with a good sweet malt and with a slight aftertaste I’m used to having in a pils. Overall very good and very sessionable.

Tasted from the tap the 12/09/2014. Golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of malts, cereals, grain and herbal. Taste has some honey but with the predominance of grain. Easy to drink and almost no aftertaste. Average carbonation and light to medium body. Next one please!
