This is one of my favorite beers. It is amber and smells wonderful. The malts sing out and make me wish I was in Bavaria drinking a "mass" in a "prosit for Gemutlichkeit". I forgot to add this review when I had this in the fall. Germans love it, and you will is worth the wait for 8-9 more months..Oktoberfest 2012. Malt flavor is tops, but it is not sweet. It goes down so smoothly that you wish it was sold by the liter here.

Thanks for the nice gift set Dr. K. That's a big ass can right there.

Poured out of liter can into the Paulaner stein provided.

A) Got a little aggressive on the pour, and had to let this settle a bit. This had a big rocky head, looked like a float. Head settled to a dusting, with a little sticky lacing at the top. The color was a hazy golden yellow.

S) Heavy on malt sweetness, light hops, and some white grape juice aroma.

T) Follows the nose pretty closely. This is sweet, bready, a little buttery. There is a hint of the hops, grape and some alcohol.

M) The palate is a wave of malt. This is pretty smooth. A medium body with the right amount of carbonation. The aftertaste lingers a bit for me.

O) A solid Oktoberfest option. I can't put it in my top five, but it's good overall. I paired this with an episode of World's Dumbest, and it went down pretty well.
