raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Barely chilled. Like the label. Little hazy,pale looking lager. Excellent head,with droopy lacing. Subdued but present aroma of noble hops,yeast and grain. Body is a little lite,somewhat fizzy but for the style,pretty good. Upfront grassy flavors. The malt and yeast are mainly all that follows. The malts come off as bit more sweet than expected with aroma but still don’t show much. The finish has some grassy hop notes and yeast.Finish also picks up some dry grainy flavors as it warms up a bit. This is a decent Ofest it’s got a clean malt and hop taste,with a good yeast,but there are many I would rather drink. Little dissapointed as I do like me some German lagers.

Bottle shared in Watford - thanks Fergus. Pours clear gold with s creamy, white head. The nose has some wheat, pale grains, some hay. Light-medium sweet flavour with sugary pale grains, wheat bread, low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish, some toasted honey, crunchy grains, wheaty biscuits. So so.

Bottle at home picked up from Watford M&S. A clear golden light orange coloured pour with a lasting white froth. Aroma is semi sweet, apple and raisin, little wheat. Palate is semi sweet, frothy, moderate carbonation. Flavour is semi sweet, nutty apple, little age, loose wheat. Not bad.

Better than the Munich Helles to me. Bit more body slightly nutty sweet give this one a little bit more deepness.

Cavie (4585) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. Brilliantly clear. Light gold color. White frothy head. Skunk in the aroma and flavor. Light malt, light body. Not that great.

Ritzn (1136) - GERMANY - FEB 15, 2017
Amber with little white head. Aroma is herbs, dusty malt, some gummy bears. Taste is a sour bite, dusty malt, some hay juice. Not so easy to drink. Rather harsh.

erickok (5805) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2017
Aroma is certainly on the sweet side for a German lager (although in line with other Oktoberfest beers I remember). Very quaffable though, easy to drink, not devoid of all character. Decent brew, for what the style is worth. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

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