Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
12 oz bottle. Deep orange colour, crystal clear with no head at all. Lovely deep rich maltiness. Munich malt and some decocted malitness are on display. Flavour shows a kiss of floral hops, lingering light breadiness. Not a lot of complexity, but this is all about being easy to drink… something it accomplishes well.

3fourths (9204) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Clear copper colored body with almost no head formation at all. Smells of sticky, sweet maple and sweet white corn, with a heavily sweet caramel and caramel corn note as well. Some faint cherry wood also shows up at times. Low carbonation, slick and oily, with flavors of semi-sweet maple malt and light plum and cedar. Medium dryness in the finish. Ok to below average.

blipp (8389) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Color is amber with a thin and quickly vanishing off white head. Aroma is very light, some caramel, maybe nutty malts, and a little bit of spice. Palate: very easy to drink but maybe a little to watery and carbonated. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, malt and light spice, nothing that leaves much of an impression. Overall this is not a very complex beer. However, is is very easy drinking and pretty cheap, so I’ll probably end up getting it again. (yay! first rating!)

Ibrew2or3 (8281) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Courtesy of Sea Bass. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. The aroma is sweet lager type malts, rich Munich grainy malts, moderate roasted malts and corn. The taste is rich maltiness with Munich malts, caramel, caraMunich, biscuit and some nuttiness. Wow, great malty brew.

b3shine (8247) - Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent deep gold with white lacing. Smells of malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

gyllenbock (8165) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear light amber with a small thick head. Aroma and taste of grain, malt, caramel and crispbread. The finosh was dry. Drinkable but nothing special.

laiti (8135) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here.

Tap. Pours with a clear amber body, with a huge tab head. Aromais grainy, toasty, lightly hoppy, and buttery. Taste is creamy, caramel, toasty, and dry. Medium dryness. Lively.

9/3/10. On tap in a pint glass. Plain, grainy aroma with a grainy, almost chocolatey flavor. Not bad.
