Cask, gravity, Wantage Beer Festival 19.11.10 Pours gold, touch hazy and with very little head, in fact it’s quite lifeless and lacking in get up and go. Sweet, sluggish, heavy and syrupy and nothing like a decent German lager in my eye’s. Worst of the night. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

[Keg at Zerodegrees Reading] Gold, slight white head, mod to strong carb. Strong continental grassy hop flavour with green leaves and a little citrus behind. OK pilsener, certainly should not be classed as an Oktoberfest despite the name and time of year implying this.
