This one didn’t do much for me within the style. Poured with a better head than some of the others of its class and with the normal amber-orange color. The aroma was somewhat caramel-like and malty. The flavor featured caramel malts, low roastedness (I would have liked more), even some grassiness (which I’m not a fan of). For an original German, not overly impressive. Too sweet and nothing to help balance it out. I’d drink it again, but I’d certainly choose a few others over this one, which is surprising #3 on the site (within style) as of today.

5 liter keg can. Pours amber\copper with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, and yeast. Flavor is a full bodied malty delight, caramel malts, mildly carbonated, yeast, citrus. Good brew. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Pours a beautiful copper color w/ a modest head that degenerates quickly to a skimpy, thin ring. Aromas of stewed veggies and sweet malts spew forward. Medum nectar w/ mellow residual effers. The texture is thin and soft. Big fruity malts, w/ said stewed veggies and herbs. The finish is bttered gently and leaves a lingering malty sweetness to ponder. bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 28, 2006
"not sure why this is so highly rated, kind of ho hum for me. Poued a nice amber color with a nice head to it. Aroma was carmel malts. Flavor was fmalty and raosted flavor a grass after taste to it which i didn’t expect. Mouthfeel was okay refreshing but flavor killded this one. eboats (1115) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 5, 2006
Poured the color of maple syrup with no head. The aroma was sweet and malty and resembled a dopplebock. Flavor was sweet malts, carmel, bread, and some hops and yeast. Kind of had a barleywine taste to it. Finish was fairly spicey with a little kick to it.

Whats to say? Its a pretty decent Oktoberfest. Comes in the bigger 500ml bombers, and is pretty amiable all around. JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Pours red amber with breif off-white head. Strong aroma of roasted caramel malts and yeast. Flavor is of malt with a mild yeast presence. Personally I prefer Paulaner. StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2006
A mid orange-copper brown coloured beerwith a thick white head. A strong aroma of malt and caramel with a yeasty element, slightly soapy. The beer is fizzy on the mouth. Yeasty flavour with malt and some sweetened fruit, like ripe bananas. The finish is fizzy yet sweet and malty. Bottle - purchased from the Beers of Europe.

Amber with a nice white head. Aroma of figs, caramel, and honey, with a touch of banana to boot. Thick and malty, lots of fig, caramel. and honey in the flavor. Smooth, relatively heavy mouth feel. One of my favorites of the style. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 1, 2006
On tap at the Hessen Haus during the 2006 Crescent Moon Beer Bus Trip. Medium gold in color with a white head. Straw-like aroma and subtle honey-malt smell. VERY SMOOTH! Very nice malt content. Not similar to the Hacker fest bier that I tried at Die Wiesen.
