50 cl bottle into a mug. Clear golden body, minimal head, very little lacing. Subtle grainy pale malt and floral hops on the nose. Crisp and sweet clean taste of grainy pale malt, a hint of apple in the background, dry finish with a very subtle hop bitterness, slightly bitter floral aftertaste. Medium-light body, high carbonation. Overall a very drinkable beer, wouldn't take an effort to down these in liters in an octoberfest tent. Not special enough to buy to be had at home again though.

A: crystal clear; light amber; 1 finger off white head that receded quickly to a thin collar; no lacing;

S: more fruity hops than caramel malt;

T: fruity and earthy hops up front, then caramel malt; a little metallic on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; light to moderate carbonation;

O: less caramel malt in the flavor than most American Oktoberfests; the metallic finish was a little off putting;

A fantastic Oktoberfest, not overly strong, refreshingly smooth!
Dare I say, I like this just as much as Hofbrau.

Crisper and lighter bodied than other (American) Oktoberfests I've had, with a good deal of head. Pleasantly carbonated, very refreshing.
