If there is the prefect beer this is it. It starts with the golden color and a great sweet hoppy aroma. Before you taste it you are in love. Then the taste hits you It is perfect smooth, flavorful and sweet yet bitter. Everytime I drink it I can't help but think it is perfect My first ( and I would guess) only 5.0 rating. You have to taste this beer.

By far the best, and I mean BEST, brew that I have ever tasted! I first tasted this great bier while at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport, KY after a Reds game.

This is a very tasty oktoberfest, like a really good, full-bodied, hoppy helles. It is bright gold, a little bubbly, with a very large barely off-white head that very slowly shrinks to a permanent thin top, leaving some foamy rings of lace. The aroma is very nice with a full-bodied bread crust quality along with grass, herbs, some butter, a hint of lemon and zesty. The flavour is similar, a creamy butter quality blended with a strong bread body, some grain, hay, west grass, herbs, lemon zest and hint of pear. It’s zesty, has great sweet-bitter balance with a tingly-zesty bitter finish and a light alcoholic spiciness and warmth. It’s wonderful, complex, always interesting, and very full of flavour.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Nice malty aroma with a hint of spiciness. Appearance us a beautiful clear golden. Taste is what an oktoberfest is supposed to be, great caramel German malt base with a hint douce from the hops. Ether palate is very clean, this is an excellent beer.

Go you good thing! Mind you, after 9 steins of this stuff in a day at the Munich Beerfest, it sort of lost some if its defining characteristics. Good head, and quite flavoursome.
