DrnkMcDermott's rating

DrnkMcDermott (3048) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Draft. Pours very well, with a foamy German type head. Has a nice roasted malt aspect to it, which actually calls to mind a well-made Vienna lager. In other words, this is a pretty okay beer. The texture and mouthfeel come across like a standard American "dark beer," which can get in the way of one's enjoyment. 2004 rating: Color is light as a Hamm's these days, which can also detract. They keep making them lighter in germany to match the lowest common denominator in drinker preferences...

Bottle. Brilliantly clear. Light gold color. White frothy head. Skunk in the aroma and flavor. Light malt, light body. Not that great.

Ritzn (980) - Bavaria, 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 (5686) - 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.

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.
