Had a half liter of this on tap at Schnitzel Platz - a nice German restaurant in the Chicagoland area. I've had this one a long time ago, before I really learned to enjoy beer and thought it was wickedly bitter. It's been 6 years since that time and I really enjoyed it this time around - quite a surprise.
A - Came with a thick frothy head, almost aproaching the consistency of shaving cream, lol. Quite clear yellow gold color.
S- Pretty general german beer smell, you know that that this is an old school german beer, nothing experimental or extreme here, just the smell of good quality german beer.
T - Crisp, refreshing, well-balanced. The moderately bitter hops and the sweeter malts of oktoberfest come at you all at once, and the alcohol is very faintly perceivable. A very classic, agreeable taste (if you like beer)
M- Perfectly carbonated for this style. Moderately high, but seems very well suited for it. Seems to break up the heavier grain bill of the oktoberfest style.
Overall - 4.5- 5. Refreshing, clean, yummy and satisfying. Don't miss out on this one ON-TAP. Don't seek out the bottles. They're green and skunk too easily.
Serving type: on-tap

Another beer I'm shocked I haven't gotten around to reviewing.
On tap at The Seehund. Pours a translucent light amber color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is malty with some honey, sweet bread, caramel and floral hop notes. The taste is floral hops followed by the malts. Caramel and honey towards the end with a bit of floral hops. Medium bodied. Overall, great representation of the style.
