Thechasm442 (856) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2012
12 oz bottle poured in a stein. Pours a clear yellow gold with a finger of white head and ok lacing. Aroma is malts, bread, honey, and floral hops. Taste is malts, grains, mild hops, bread, and a little spice. Mouthfeel is thin and easy to drink in mass quantities. Decent Oktoberfest.

Cerveja excelente! Corpo leve, aroma destacado do lúpulo, e obviamente como a família exige, baixo destaque do lúpulo.

panzerwolf (311) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Malts and some grassy, herbal notes. Kind of simple in its taste, not very bitter, just very much average. Pleasant enough, but doesn’t really stick in your mind in any way, either. Nice, though.

hauxe (481) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2016
Pours clear gold from the bottle and leaves a large, foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, with a large dollop of honey. Taste is overall sweet with a light bitter twist at the end that feels just a touch rancid. Simple overall with no twists or turns, but I can see this being a decent accompanyment to a heavy German meal of schweinshaxe and sauerkraut - something balance the sweetness and hide the flaws. Body is medium. The 6.3 ABV is very well hidden.

BrewWhatIWant (34) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
If I’m not mistaken, this is one of the six official breweries of Oktoberfest in Munich. Having never been there, this isn’t quite what I expected. It pours a clear straw colour with a foamy white head that fades quickly. Nose is floral with hints of caramel. Taste is extremely sweet. Notes of honey, caramel, cereal, and spices, but little maltiness.The hops start with a sharp bite and quickly fade to a light, floral taste. Full bodied and moderately carbonated. This is for malt what so many IPAs are for hops. Good flavours, but too unbalanced to be a really good beer.

Color amarillo claro con espuma blanca y esponjosa. Vistosa de burbuja fina. Aroma es a pan. Sabor a pan dulce y caramelo. Buena sensación en boca, cuerpo ligero muy bebible. Me ha gustado mucho.
