1 quart, 1.82 ounce can exclaiming this is a limited edition as it is the official beer of the 200th Munich Oktoberfest. Okay, that's pretty neat.
Poured into a seidel--yellow, maybe a bit darker than a Budweiser. Little head which dissipates immediately, no lacing. Not impressed with the look of the beer... except that it's in a seidel, which is always pretty cool...
Get some malty notes in the smell. Not much else.
Tastes surprisingly good! (Surprising because it didn't look like much.) Somewhat malty, not overly so. Very mellow. A nice, mild beer with just a hint of bitterness. I like this.
Mouthfeel isn't exceptional. Foams up alright. Fairly average, amybe a bit betetr since it successfully balances between being so carbonated it bites, and flat. I'm giving it a 3.5, since it may be just better than average. But I'm not really sold that it shouldn't be a 3.0. Close call.
Drinkability ranks high. This sits light and tastes good. There is nothing about this beer that would make me hesitate from grabbing another, except that it is almost 34 ounces!

Pours a clean, clear, golden color. There is a white frothy head, about two fingers of it, that soon settles to only a halo around the edge.
Not much to the nose, there are however some malts and grains to be picked up.
The beginning is neutral, slight sweetness, followed by a balanced body, some more bitterness perhaps, coming to a nicely bittery finish.
Nothing special, but still enjoyable.

4.1/5 rDev +7%

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.
