The best beer in the world. Without rival - except perhaps Weihenstephaner.

I have had this beer both on tap and in a 16oz bottle. It is a remarkable beer in either form. I seek it out. I don't think I have a single negative comment about this beer - to my palate it is perfect in every way. It pours a pure, bright golden color with a white head. The smell is primarily of yeast - it reminds me of making bread, the subtle burn you feel if you bring your nose close to the bowl of yeast and sugar and water. There is some of that in the flavor as well. There is some hop, but its bitterness is negated by the malt and yeast. The malt flavor is not detectable per se - it is felt in the soft texture of the beer and it counters the bitterness of hops. Yeast is the dominant flavor. Breadiness. Mouthfeel is superior. It feels smooth and wet - there is not a hint of chalkiness or dryness to be found here. Like a loaf of bread, this beer can become heavy if one overindulges. That said, it is highly drinkable if your intent is to savor its impeccable flavor. If you, like me, love lagers, this is a beer you should seek out - there is nothing revolutionary about it...German purity law etc...but it is so perfectly executed that I simply cannot imagine a better, more satisfying beer.

Served in a 0.5L Stiegl...glass...at Beelow's.

At the time of this writing, this beer is classified as an O-Fest. ...The hell did I miss!? Whatever. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises fresh flowers, grass, mild biscuit, and a very slight twinge of pine needle. The taste brings in more of the same, the flowers and grass really shining brightly, showing off what simplicity can achieve. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, this was a damn fine beer (awful for an O-Fest...), one whose popularity here I can easily understand. Good times.
