A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

Bottle 500ml from Parkhill cellars. Not their best beer. Aromas of wet leaves, with hints of grass. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a thin head.

The color is a pale, clear gold. Thin white head that doesn’t stick around for long. Smooth and easy to drink, but not much in the way of flavor or body. Getting some light grain and some hay and grass. Little bit of hop bitterness at the end. It’s not bad, and it’s got some character to it, but there isn’t much going on here for me.

Bottle at home. Golden amber pour, thick bubbly white head. Nose is rich, sweet lager malts and some toffee. Yum. Palate is a bit watery perhaps but nice notes of lager grains, bready malts, hint at toffee and a long sort of Helles linger. Nice stuff.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle from Binny’s in Lincoln Park. Pours a rather pale gold, lacking the round orangey notes. Nose is odd. Lots of nutty melanoidins and a touch vegetal at first then just becoming nutty and bready. Minimal hop notes. On tasting, crisp and clean, higher than anticipated bitterness. Really quite refreshing and clean, but lacking round and full malt notes. Okay.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 Well done o-fest. Clean and tasty. Little bit of noble hops compete with deep malt character.

SanfordBrewer (1634) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Golden with a thin white head, medium-full body, and medium carbonation.

Aroma is very much like their Original Hells Lager -lots of sweet, cracker-like malt and buttery, leafy, noble hops.

Flavor is German Helles all the way, maybe with a bit more body and hop bitterness than usual.

Overall, a good beer, and although possibly slightly different than their Helles, not anything like the other traditional examples.

olio (10462) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2011
Draught @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu.
Pours clear golden colour with small head. Aroma of dry hay field, herbal notes, light malts, hops, clove and grain. Flavour of grain, colve, hay, malts, light fruits and grass. Palate is very dry and somewhat bitter at the end.

GTAEgeek (2333) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. Pours light yellow with a thin off-white head. Smells like a pilsener, with notes of hay, grapefruit, and lemon peels. Just a little biscuity yeast. The flavor is sweet, with just a hint of tartness. The palate is medium, fairly acidic and sticky. This beer is surprisingly good. Looks like a pale lager and smells like a pils, but the flavor is remarkably pleasant and mellow, and the palate is very crisp and refreshing.

3.5
Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2011
Würziger Duft mit minimalen Andeutungen von Metall. Geschmack getreidig mit guter Hopfenherbe, sehr süffig. Im Abgang malziger. Gut trinkbares Festbier, das durch seine Weichheit und hohe Süffigkeit überzeugt.Test vom 23.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

3.4
kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2011
(bottle) yellow gold with small white head. Aroma of grain and sweet malt. Flavor is sweet bready malt, a whiff of grassy hops.
