COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Aroma is not strong with dough and floral hints. It has an amber color but not much of a head. It’s hoppy and smooth with hints of a yeast flavor. It’s a decent all the way around.

Tap (Bier Bier, Helsinki)
Pale orange, keggy head. Sweet malty aroma. Full smooth palate, almost slick. Sweet malty taste, sticky. Bland and keggy. Not much aroma can escape the keggy head, and it messes up the mouthfeel too. Even lagers can be killed by keg.

Docavey (69) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Had this from the bottle purchased at total wine. Made in PA. 5.6% alcohol but doesn't feel heavy. Amber color due to toasted caramel malt. German hops and very citrusy flavor with good topical German bitter flavor. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tekstr1der (426) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Pours bronze with a fast-disappearing head that leaves a tan ring. Aroma is caramel dominated by various german hops. Flavor is weird, with overcooked/burnt food taking the forefront. There are some caramel sugars and bready malt in the mix. Weird though. Smooth finish though.
