A crisp, clean, excellent example of the German Octoberfest style. A lot of these reviews miss the fact that German Octoberfest beers are different from American versions. This beer is excellent to world class, not merely OK.

Poured from the Euro-green bottle into a shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces a big sticky off-white head that persists. The beer is a crystal clear, pale, slightly amber golden color, with light carbonation.

Wonderful aroma of light toasted malt- I'm thinking mainly Vienna malt. Grainy, bready and hint-of-honey aroma-flavors are the main highlights. A creamy mouthfeel complements just a hint of lingering hops bitterness with a light floral quality. Underlying everything is that unique mineral quality that never seems to be present in American beers.

This is just an awesome lager beer and a brand that literally defines the style. A must have/try.
