3.75/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a clear medium golden color with a one finger white head that fades very rapidly. Upon fading there is only a very light lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is of a yeasty and biscuit smell. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter notes of a lighter citrus and some herbal aromas as well.

Taste – The taste begins of a drier malty flavor. Some flavors of a more lemon nature come to the tongue. With the lemon are notes of yeast and some hay-like flavors. Toward the end, grassy and herbal flavors along with the lightest bit of citrus sweetness move into the taste and create a lightly hopped crisp taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is average to slightly above average. Both are good for the style and create a very crisp feel on the tongue.

Overall – A crisp and refreshing brew. While not the most complex, it is refreshing with a nice aftertaste left lingering on the tongue. Not too bad.

Having been to Munich several times for Octoberfest, I need to rank this as the most authentic "American" version of "tent" (zelt) beer I've ever enjoyed! I had this brew at Victory and they've hit a grandslam with this brew. Don't compare it to any other style of beer. The folks at Victory (who by the way trained in German) know what they're doing. Save yourself the time and $$$, try Zeltbier on a cool Autumn afternoon and you're in Munich!

Walked into Beermuda one Friday and this just happens to be on tap for 2 dollars. Seeing it's over 6% for a pint I found it a best buy.

A - Not very dark looks kind of like Hofbräuhaus Oktoberfest very clear bright amber brown, more yellow if anything. Head is minimal with just a 1/4 inch that fades.
S - Not too malty has a herbal hop bitterness, some lemons, and a mild bit of biscuit. If I was untold I would have sworn this was a Pilsner.
T - Again drinks more like a pilsner with skunky balanced yeast/malts, some herbal hop bitterness, and a clean bit of malt.
M - Light to medium it drinks rather well. On par with the style.

Overall it was a decent beer nothing to seek out again, but for 2 bucks it was pound able.

Beer is yellow and clear, served on draft in a shaker pint. White head, small and large bubbles, moderate carbonaiton, moderate retention, some lacing.

Aroma is clean and mildly malty sweet.

Beer is wet and easy drinking, love it. I really do. This is my sort of beer, clean and clear and just a joy to drink. I want a keg of this. Definitely a repeat.
