A- straw yellow color and a big white head that disipates and leaves little lace.

S- cereal grains, light spice, sweet almonds, vegetal hops.

T- a really nice marzipan like sweetness, not overpowering. Light and refreshing, with prickly carbonation, and a good bitter aftertaste.

O- Some beers are just made to be quaffed without any thrills. This is one of them. What a session brew. Prost!

Poured from the 1 liter can into the beautiful 1 liter Paulaner mug.

A - Dark straw yellow color with nice creamy white head that dissipates quickly. Pretty good lacing but not the greatest. Lot of bubbling going on in the mug as well.

S - There's not a lot of smell going on. I'm getting the sweet malty smell, not much on anything floral or citric.

T - A very well balance of sweet malt and bitter hop but just not a lot else to it. I don't want to say it, but there's also a grassy/grainy sort of taste in it. It's not like a musty adjunct type taste...but it's there and it's not doing any harm. Carbonation is excellent.

M - Light bodied but not watery. It doesn't categorize anywhere near an adjunct type body.

D - This is perhaps the beer's highest point. You will have no problem downing this on the final hot summer day's. With the perfect balance of sweet and bitter and the perfect carbonation, this beer's drinkability is almost as good as it gets.

Poured from the big ass can into the Paulaner mug. Beer produced on 06/16/10 with a best by date of 03/16/11. What am I going to do with this 1L mug after this beer? Pale yellow color with a small head that did not last very long. Not much for lacing either. I blame the mug more than anything for the lack of head and lacing. But the pale color is not what I would describe a good Oktoberfest as having. Has a hoppy and sweet aroma. Smells floral with notes of honey and grain. Too sweet for my tastes but otherwise a solid lager. Very floral and grassy in nature. The malt tastes very sweet. I would of preferred a more toasted nature. Feels a little heavier than it probably is because of the lingering sweetness weighs on the palate. Perfectly carbonated as to be expected. An arm workout hoisting the heavly mug and 1L of beer. No problem downing the entire contents of the can. Probably will be a little drunky after finishing this.
