BrettTaylor (747) - Radford, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Poured from bottle. Pours a pale gold color with a 1 finger head which is prett long lived, leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of malt, somewhat bready, and a touch of green apple. Tastes malty, bit of yeast, and mild hop bitterness. It is clearly an Oktoberfest, it is not as good as other versions.

Magnífica lager con un sabor muy redondo como a pan que te deja muy satisfecho. De las mejores de su estilo. Repetiré sin dudar.

Really nice taste! This is what a beer should taste like. Strong and even taste, not too strong but not any watery taste at all. Colour is golden, bubbly and a thin white head.

Pours nice golden color with a clean white head. Forward, malty nose with minimal hopping noted, some grass or vegetal notes along with a doughy character. A rather flat character in the mouth, maybe a bit more carbonation would help this. Attenuated finish. Drinks clean but not terribly interesting.

0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: Malzig, würzig, leicht alkoholisch. Erscheinung: Dunkelgoldenes Bier, relativ flacher, aber stabiler, weißer Schaum, sehr schöne Gardine. Geschmack: Malzig süß, leicht würzig, minimal bitter. Nachgeschmack: Vollmundig, der Mund wird leicht warm durch den leicht erhöhten Alkohol, Süße hält sich recht lange. Gesamt: Solides Bier, typisch für seine Art.

Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle. Golden coloured leaning into yellow. Decent head. Aroma of noble hops. Taste is spicy, bready and grassy. Creamy texture. Some alcoholic warmth. Ok. In a blind tasting I would have taken it for a Helles.

Tony_Grayne (245) - Borisov, BELARUS - DEC 10, 2016
500 ml bottle. Crystal clear bright yellow golden colour. 2 finger white steady head. Flat carbonation. Aroma: salty crackers, cornflakes, grain, sweet malts, faint hops on the background. Almost like a basic pale lager nose. Flavour is sweetish malty, cereal, grain, grassy & lemony, alcohol touch. Very basic short hoppy finish. Dry finish. Thin texture and prominent abv. Somewhat boring.

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