A - pours from a massive flip top bottle to an enormous paulaner stein   a toasty amber brown color. Huge off white foam billows almost past the top of the glass. Dissipates rather slowly leaving thick lacing on the glass.

S - aroma is pleasant. firm malt character with lots of nutty notes as well as whole grain toast and caramel. There is also a leafy green herbal quality that is fairly strong for the style.

T - lightly sweet caramel flavor up front. The full depth of the malt flavors come through as it warms on the tongue with notes of almonds, cereal, and toasted bread. The toasty notes mingle with some earthy hop character creating a light roast coffee flavor. Hints of leafy greens  at the backend with a fairly long finish.

M - medium bodied with a smooth yet creamy texture. Medium bodied on the lighter side.

O - Nothing mind blowing but simple, flavorful and  fairly well balanced. A very nice example of an Oktoberfest/märzen lager. Plus it comes in an awesome 65oz flip top you can use as a growler.

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!
