On the light side of the scale, this beer from the source looks yellow, a little thin in the edges, as it pours. The body fills in a bit as it fills the glass, though it leans lighter with a yellow hue in what finally reveals itself as a pale orange body. The head, off-white, is soft but rises to nearly a finger. Retention is pretty good, and the lace left is mostly spotty with a little patching accompanying.
While clean, the aroma's fairly light, but it's not exactly weak. It is a little fainter than it should be. Along with fruitiness, caramel and biscuit dough, there's a slight grainy astringency, but it's not too strong.
Sturdy malts offer the traditional mix of toast and caramel as well as fruiter type of sweetness. Slightly spicy with a bit of leaf, and a touch herbal as well, the hops definitely seem to be German.
The body is light to medium, certainly lighter than Americanized bersions, but with biting crispness and steady carbonation all the way.

Purchased as a close out at the LCBO for $3.85 for a 500ml flip top bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a small head that is gone pretty fast. Medium gold with a iridescent quality.

S- Good hops here.

T- Mellow. Very mellow and light. Hops and malt are there in good proportions. Touch of sourness to it but not unmanageable.

M- Interestingly light for the style. Not dry but it is crisp.

O- Nice to get this rarity to try once. No idea where they pulled it out of but was happy I got it. If I saw it again I would not buy it as there are many other beers out there that are better but this is a good brew.

Food Pairing

This pretty good brew went well with..... Grilled cheese sandwiches with onion

had this on tap with one other beer the entire trip. just too sick the rest of the time and so on this last day i had these two on tap in germany at epcot.

decent, albeit light pour with a small head that glazed the side of the glass with some decent lacing and a nice bit of head. aroma is light bready malts, hints of caramel and a touch of a nice grassy hop note, nothing crazy here. smooth and clean flavor, light with a heavy caramel flavor that melted into a really nice light hoppy note and a smooth and clean finish.

overall not a bad beer, not worth 8 bucks but not bad.

Strangely enough unas bitches, I got this beer on tap at Epcot Center in the Germany section of the World Food and Drink tour. A grossly overweight person had just run over my heel with a scooter, and I was so mad all I wanted was a brew at 10 in the morning. So I found this on tap, bought a commemorative Disney mug to fill with it, and drank up. I felt a lot better.

Appearance - Pours a super orange body, almost looking like liquified pumpkins, into my massive mug. Nice one finger head sticks around for a while, leaving adequate lacing. Good looking beer.

Smell - Spices, malts, caramel, and some toasty notes round out a subdued but nonetheless complex nose. Smells like an Oktoberfest brew!

Taste - Light buscuity toastiness, some caramel, sweet and spicy notes all swirl the palate, making this a unique, tasty beverage.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium body. Nothing too special or remarkable here, it just goes down like beer. However, they didn't do anything to mess it up either!

Overall - Give this beer a shot! I have no idea where you could find it, I just lucked into it at Disney, of all places. It looks like it is hard to come by in the States, judging by the number of reviews. Who knows? It is certainly a unique beer to try, one all of your friends may not have tried before!
