I had this beer on tap last year and couldn't pass up the big, glorious 1 L can this year. First, don't expect a traditional Oktoberfest/Maerzen. This is more of an amped up Helles, really more akin to what is being served at the real deal in Munich. Pours into 1 L krug a clear goldenrod with a voluminous head of airy froth. Soft, warm cereals matched with a pleasant fresh, grassy hop character - lemon rind, hay, green peppercorn, and meadow grass. Perfectly balanced and meant to be drunk by the liter.

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.
