Awesome 1L can into stein. Love it.
Pours clear gold with a one-finger, fluffy white head that fades quickly into a thin layer of soapy suds with nice lacing. Looks pretty much exactly like it's supposed to.
Nose is has a nice, light herbal hoppiness to it, alongside a light pale malt sweetness that has just a bit of honey. Fairly light.
Taste follows the nose - nice balance, with the hop character combining the herbal characteristics from the nose with a nice, grassy bite towards the front of the palate as well. Malt character is perhaps a bit more forward than in the nose - again, pale malt with just a bit of honey. Finish has another grassy hit, just a bit of alcohol, just a bit of grainy cereal malt.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, maybe just a hair on the light side, with a nice, light creaminess. Carbonation is certainly reserved, but really works beautifully with this one. There's a very light lingering dryness after the finish starts to fade.
Drinkability is spectacular. Beautifully flavorful, great balance, excellent mouthfeel. Nice to get a German beer like this where you actually know how long it's been on the shelf - beautifully fresh. Love it, beautiful beer.

330 ml bottle into dimpled mug, best before 5/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of bread, toast, cracker, honey, pear, apple, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, yeast ester, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of bread, toast, cracker, pear, apple, honey, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of bread, toast, cracker, pear, apple, honey, light caramel, light pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of malt and yeast ester flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Oktoberfest style. All around great balance and robustness of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
