Bought this because of the free glass.

A: A dark golden hue very nice looking brew, a nice two finger head at the top and left a little bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Not to crazy of a nose, a little bit of bicuit and hops and slight hint of lemon zest.

T: Same as the nose, nothing to crazy with the taste, wheaty, and biscuits throughout, and hop presence is there as well.

M: Medium bodied and a good amount of carbonation.

D: Easy drinking beer, very subtle and refreshing but nothing wild on the taste side of things. Glad I got the monstrous glass with it!

Appearance - Your basic medium yellow that is very clear and with a medium head. Not very impressive but still not bad looking

Smell - Hoppy, very light tones of grain and sweetness.

Taste - A very light beer tasting beer with a good medium bitterness but mellow enough to be delicious and drinkable

Mouthfeel - last longs and has great carbonation to keep the good flavor around for several minutes

Overall - a decent drinking beer but I would want a bit more on the appearance and semll

Stein and 1L can gift set from CBX.

A: gold; 3-finger, puffy white head; nice story and info on the can.

S: sweet malt; light bready yeast aroma; sweeter than I expected.

T: sweet malt; light bread crust; not much bitterness - perhaps some dryness on the finish, but barely; quite sweet, but still OK.

M: medium mouthfeel; low carbonation; a touch slick; nothing surprising

O: a nice Oktoberfest beer; perhaps a tad too sweet, but still very drinkable - I can definitely knock out a 1L can of it.

Ein Maß. From the can into the seidel. Finger of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
Hay and barnyard smell, in the best way.
Nice grain taste, low bitterness, little honey and smooth.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation. Clean finish.
Nice flavor and something to drink by the liter.

Poured thh one liter can into the "free" glass that came with beer for a clearish, dark gold beer with voluminous head that left some lace patches down the mug as I drank. Not really a medicinal or aluminum type smell, although the hops take on a distinct earthy and grassy note. Hops are the smell for this beer, although some light citric notes in the hops as well as touches of bready sweet malt make an appearance. Like an good German bier, this brew is light-bodied and easy to drink with the dominant taste being the sharp hoppy bite. The hops are like they smell, earthy and dry, and are balanced not so much from any citric hops (there are some) but also from a moderate usage of bread/barley malts and a touch of sweetness shines through here and there. This easy to drinkness, as it were, makes this not only a good beer to quench your thirst but also easy to keep drinking (which might be the point since it's an Oktoberfest bier). A little pricey but you get a souvenier for your bucks.
