Beer review from BA Mag Sep 2007.

Saturday September 22nd marks the first day of Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Americans will be celebrating this holiday till the end of October as most think Oktoberfest is a month-long event. This beer is brewed year-round so you can celebrate O-fest anytime you please. Whatever works, right?

Brightly glowing orange-amber color shows a perfect clarity. Three fingers of off-white froth slowly collapse to a thin lace. Malty aroma with bready tones on top with light layers of caramel and biscuit, faint alcohol vapor and herbal hop in the back of the nose. Very smooth mouthfeel with a fluffy moderate body and a semi-creamy palate. Lots of malt character right from the get-go, fresh toasted grain with a long maltiness that brings a bit of sweetness. Hops are casual and walk onto the palate with a well-balanced bitterness, along with herbal and floral flavors. Slight alcohol warmth in the semi-sweet finish.

Just the sheer balance and cleanliness of this lager is amazing. If we had to come up with a benchmark brand for every style, this would be our pick for O-fest beers.

Serving type: bottle

5 liter keg, moderate carbonation at best out of these. Very nice lacing and clarity.

Malty with toasted and bready tones in the aroma, alcoholic vapors are quick and clean.

Smooth and clean with a solid maltiness, lots of toasted flavours floating around. Bready sweet on the palate with a hop bitterness that grows to balance, little bit of flavour comes through in an herbal note.

Not too bad from the mini-keg, I'd get this again for sure when it comes around again next September.

Serving type: on-tap
