Enjoyed from the 16.9 brown bottle. A well-balanced German lager. Nice malty middle and very smooth palate & finish. Great color- deep golden. An excellent beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured to a bright yellow with some carbonation and a thin white head that reduced quickly and left okay lacing. Not much in the nose except a little grain and some floral scents. Mouthfeel was medium boided with little bite, and the flavor is more of the floral and grainy hops.
This was an okay beer enjoyed cold on a hot day, but nothing special.

One liter pour on tap at the Hofbräuhaus in Munich on 5/31. Clear straw yellow color with a small white head. Lightly sweet and grainy aroma and taste. Nothing special going on here. Just something that tastes decent and is easy to drink quickly and drink a large amount of. Glad I had it at the HB Haus, but the beer itself is not worth the 6.60 Euros I paid.

BOTM club 6/08 This beer pours a golden yellow with no head. Aromas are slightly sweet and skunky. The flavors are sweet and slightly dry. Typical helles beer. Not that bad though. Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth, MI. Was served very cold, and was golden yellow color with a frothy white head that left some lacing. Aroma of malt and hops, with light citrus and flowers. Taste was slight lemon, pine, hops, and citrus. Mouthfeel was fizzy. Overall was nothing spectacular, but was quenching and pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glugs of Octo’s, vom fass at the beer garden in the Viktualienmarkt. Not sure of the name. Soapy, herbal, intensely sprucey hop aroma with noble menthol hints. Pale, lemony, grassy and dense with coniferous hop and the same lingeringly sweet biscuit note as the weisse. Welcome to Munich.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 12 fl. oz. Clear, golden yellow color with ordinary white head. Aromas of sweet malts and some grain. Light bodied with a soft texture and a dry finish. Flavor is lightly sweet to start, then a lightly hopped, dry bitter end. Nothing wrong here, just nothing to brag about. If anything, I could definitely drink a lot of this.

Very full palate, especially for a lager. Somewhat grassy aroma. Very smooth; high class beer. Get this if it’s available!
