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.

Served in a Paulaner krug.

I saw a half-gallon swingtop of this at a local store and knew I just had to buy it and try it. It pours a clear amber-gold topped by over a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises honey, light caramel, light orange zest, sweet flowers, grass, and light greens. The taste brings in more of the same, with the grass, flowers, and newly-arrived light biscuit taking the fore. The body is a rather light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a kinda watery feel. Overall, a very easy-drinking O-Fest, but one that's jut too light, too thin, too grassy; in short, there's not as much O-Fest character here.

Tasted at Epcot, of all places.

Reasonably clear (mild haze). Light amber/deep gold color. Nearly no head and certainly no lace.

Smells "clean". Mostly malt aroma with a strong raw grain element. Very low hops.

The flavor matches the aroma. It starts with a blend of raw and fully malted pale grain. Rich bodied for the style. Good carbonation. Decent but not special.

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.
