Poured into a glass mug. Pours clear amber with a tall, off-white head that dissipates slowly. There are lots of tiny streaming bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Some lacing is left behind as the head dissipates. There are aromas of bready malt and grassy and floral hops. The taste follows the nose. It's very bready. The hop bitterness is not strong, but it does lend some nice balance to the flavor. The body is light with adequate carbonation. The finish is smooth and dry. The drinkability is high. Overall, this is an excellent example of this style. Definitely give it a try.

12oz bottle into a frozen mug.
A - Beautiful, crystal clear dark, autumnal amber. Pretty white head that dissipates quickly, leaving little lace.
S - Typical fresh "hay field" smell of a well-crafted euro-lager. Not special, just lagery goodness. Would love to smell a bit more crystal in this one.
T - The taste of any world class lager with some extra caramel and honey notes. The hop bitterness comes out a little more as it warms up.
M - A bit dry, especially at the end, but crisp and refreshing.
O - What a great lager! I'd only had Sam Adams Oktoberfest before this and I thought it was pretty darned good and looked forward to it every Autumn. This was just such an incredibly better Oktoberfest beer. Paulaner Oktoberfest is available at my bottleshop year round and it's going to be a trial to make myself wait until Autumn to buy it.
