Little white head, yellow color. Like a a yellow cloud.

Smells very bready, malty goodness. Like the pilsbury doughgirl in heat...

tastes of sugary malty goodness, like sugar smacks with hops and alcohol.

Smack, smack, sugar smacks, give me a smack and i'll smack you back.

Good beer ya.

20th review on BA
Bottle poured to pint glass

App- Straw colored yellow. Very thin head that left almost instantly. Left no lacing at all.

Smell- Smells a bit skunky like all german beers do. Its hard to pick up on a lot of scents in the glass. It's very hard to discern this from a lot of other German Macro lagers.

Taste- Slightly malty and a bit yeasty all at the same time. Has a taste of bread to me. Its crisp in the first sip then gets a little bitter.

Mouth- Leaves a slight taste on the back of the tounge. Its very light with very little carbonation to speak of.

Drink- Pretty decent but not up to the standards of the other very good Oktoberfest beers that I have had.
