Malty, sweet. A fizzy head, light and crisp, nutty and a bit of bread/cereal. Hints of hops in the finish, but not much. ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2015
March madness 2015. The beer is well balanced and is pretty tasty. What is missing for me is a greater grain complexity. The noble hops flavor does not come through. bigben873 (258) - Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
March Madness 2015 - A solid lager, good for a hot summer day with a bunch of steamed crabss ffaoe (874) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2015
malty aroma, dark golden in color with a fast fading head. very nice malty aroma with a slight hop finish. nimbleprop (8708) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2015
16oz pint at Clyde’s in Chinatown pours a clear amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is fine, some yeast, some bread, a little root veg, some mild soap, not much else. Flavor has a rusty penny thing happening, some muddle citrus, but mostly just yeast and bread. Merciful, clean finish.

Appearance: medium light amber; clear, with a short off-white head. Aroma: light caramel malts, hint of toffee, bit of grass and light fruit. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: very short, with a slight grassy minerality (maybe a hint of metal) lasting the longest. Notes: This would actually be a better Oktoberfest beer than their own Oktoberfest/Marzen ("Festie", it’s called). Bottle from Total Wine and More, McLean, Virginia.

Bottle. Nose is sweet and floral, juicy citrus -- really nice effect from noble hops -- and a lightly grainy toasty malt character. Pours orange-golden with strong carbonation and a soapy beige head. Oily light body, plenty of malt and juicy citrus juice, light toasting and crisp, dried out, very low bitterness, clean and lightly floral. Reminds of some recent improvements to authentic German Pilsner, especially in the hop department, but the malt is thin and a bit weak, bit tired despite the mild refreshemnt.

Transfer from BA review on 7-7-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light amber/golden color with a thin white head. The head fades fast to leave very little lacing.
Smell – Mainly of bread and some yeast aromas as well. Mixed with this is a somewhat sweet caramel aroma with lighter hop aromas of floral nature.
Taste – A lightly toasted flavor meets the tongue initially. There are light sweet notes of fruit; citrus and some peach and apricot. As the taste advances a light hoppy flavor comes to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to the end and leave a rather pleasant semi sweet/ slightly hoppy flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body is on the average side as well as the carbonation level. Both are quite fitting and appropriate for the flavors of the beer.
Overall – Easy to drink, but again nothing to special. Good flavors, but nothing to go out of the way for. Luvystypotables (2039) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Almost no aroma just a hint of malt. Caramel colour with a short lasting head. Taste of malt slightly sour, weak palate of malt. mike5326 (1780) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Clear caramel color, no head. Not much of an aroma. Light body with a light malt watery flavor with a light finish.
