Decided to try this back to back against Paulaner's Okto. Pours with almost no head, and what's there is gone in an instant. Doesn't lace at all either. Pleasing color, though - a clear cider gold. Smells sweet - bread, apple, and plum. Taste is less pronounced than Paulaner, but very similar - sweet, fruitlike malt tempered by a dash of noble hops. Nothing unpleasant, but flavors lack the clarity of the Pauly Okto. Mouthfeel is this beer's strongpoint: not thick, not thin, just right - Goldilocks would approve. A very drinkable beer, to be sure, but I wouldn't choose this over the Paulaner.
