Half litre bottle. A: Golden, medium, thin head,
moderate retention, some lacing, appetizing. S:
The combination of orange and malt reminded me
of Munich Helles style beers. T: Predominantly
malt, hints of grain, crisp, clean tasting. M:
Slightly heavy body, moderate carbonation. O: A
decent enough subtle Helles, not earth shattering
but went down pretty well.

16.9 oz. can poured into nonic

L: yellow gold, light gold, clear as water ... so clear it's freaky; lots of bubbles cascading up through the column; almost no head, but I gave it a super light pour; foam is white, and it keeps a nice collar

S: sweet bread malt; sweet biscuits ... really sweet and fruity at times, almost as fruity as an English pale ale

T: a ton of sweet bread malt taste with a surprising bit of grassy hop bite -- it's not at the pilsener level, but there's detectable hops here, both grassy and spicy. the sweet malt backbone is the top feature. it's almost like apricot at times.

F: fantastic ... light, effervescent but solid

O: by far my favorite Octoberfest/Marzen so far ... in fact, it gives me hope for the style, because my run through a few of them last fall was disappointing. this one is super sweet but with a pinch of grain and hops to offer some balance.

for the price (about $9/4-pack of 16.9 oz. cans), it's neither cheap nor expensive ... but cheap enough and good enough that I can see myself grabbing a 4-pack of this a couple times a year. a great break from the American hop scene.

1/2 liter bottle of Austrian lager, Stiegl. I'm accustomed to seeing the pils around my area. The local college in Steubenville has an exchange program with a college in Austria all of the Catholic college kids come back state side with a craving for this industrial style lager from Salzburg. A deep golden akin to apple juice with a large white head forming thick with flowing stream of carbonation bubbles in the glass, speckled lacing sporadic but there. The nose has nice floral/herbal hops in the back end with an upfront, bread dough sweetness with hints of cooked vegetable pretty straight forward Euro lager truth be told, but pretty clean so far. An enjoyable rolling malt sweetness, think biscuit malt with some mineral water, just enough herbal hops to give it a zing, completely clean dry crisp lagered finish. This beer is meant to be drank in number, not complex at all but doesn't really set out to be that type of beer. This is industrial style mass produced lager with a decent flavor, I can't complain it is what it is. Not leaps and bounds above an American style light lager, but there's more tradition in this glass than your average BMC. Goldbrau is right it says it all it's Gold beer, highly force carbonated yet finishes clean with just enough hop snap to keep you coming back for another sip. If those college kids want to relive their semester abroad more power to them, I can see the sentimental value in a lot of bad beers this is just extremely middle of the road to be a go to beer for me.
