Drank several .5 liter cans of this several years ago. Would like to purchase more. Problem is I live in Dallas. Very smooth going down. Nice European taste. One of my favorites.

Taste: delicate barley bread notes, balanced malts to hop. Mild sweet nose. Bright Gold in color, clear, with a tall white head of foam. Medium to medium lite body. Crisp and easy drinking.

Modern Golden Festbier instead of the traditional amber Marzen. Biscuit and apple backbone, with spicy and floral noble hops for balance. Almost like a more biscuity Dortmunder.

Poured into dimpled seidel. Fizzy, but only a ring of head. Light straw color.

Nose is light, sweet malt.

Taste is malted, with light, vague fruitiness, and a balancing hop spice at the end.

Mouth is pretty smooth.

Paulaner's lighter Oktoberfest exemplifies the more helles side of the style, and even bears some resemblance to mailbock. A serviceable lager, very sessionable.
