3.25/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Orangish body, clear; big, frothy head

Aroma: Grassy, spicy, hoppy

Taste: Spicy, tart, citrusy, hoppy; ok, but not as good as the hype

Remarks: initially had this beer in bottle, but did get to try it with dinner at the Hofbräuhaus in Munich. No real change in the rating.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Serving type: bottle

4.34/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: straw colored beer with a nice thick head
S: Bready with a sweet aroma
T: Sweet malts with an almost Pilsner like hop character. Bready and spicy all at the same time.
M: Great carbonation cives this beer a refreshing quenching mouthfeel
O: My favorite of all the fest beers I tried this year. It has a lighter taste but higher alcohol than most. sneaky beer that requires one to monitor intake closely. this beer slides down easy, very festive
