From the Oktoberfest 2017 1 liter can, it pours a golden color with a modest head into the glass. Malt and bready scent in the nose. The mouth gets the same with a light carbonation bite. Prost!!

Pours a crystal clear light bronze color. Effervescent with large bubbles coursing upwards. Thick huge white frothy head when initially poured slowly dissipates steadily leaving no residual head or lacing.

Smell has notes of grain, dough, floral hops and hints of sweet dough.

Taste has notes of grain, dough, sweet honey, kind of bitter hops on the end. On the sweeter side with a honey like sweetness. Sweetness lingers to the finish.

Feel is fuller bodied, mild carbonation, a bit heavy from the sweetness.

Overall a solid beer more in line with the festbier tradition.

easy to find around germany come fall, but not as good as most. Was expecting much better from this Munich stalwart. Hacker-Pschorr puts this brew to shame....

Brilliant golden yellow color, perfectly clear, white head. Noble hops are prominent on the nose, and the Pilsen malt makes a welcome guest appearance.

Taste is magnificent, grassy hop flavors hit up front, then the soft caramel and toffee notes segue in, giving this a rich flavor profile that should be the baseline for the style.

Pours perfectly clear light yellow, almost looks like cooking oil. Bright white fluffy head, good 1/4" retention. Moderate lacing.

Smells of lightly toasted biscuits with only a suggestion of banana.

Taste is very similar to aroma. A hint of floral hops is faint in the after taste.

Feel is surprisingly richer than it's appearance would suggest. Still light, but straddles the line between weisse and traditional lager.

Overall, this is much better than I remembered. The word weisn on this almost scared me from re trying it, but the use of it's yeast compliments this lager wonderfully. Prost!

A crystal clear golden with a finger of whitish head that settles quickly. Very mild lacing. Aroma has some sweet malt, bread crust, and, some light, mild grassy notes. The flavor is very mild, overall. Pleasant, for sure, the grassy qualities are there, the toasted bread is there, and there isn't an overkill sweetness to the beer; which is good. The feel is medium-ish body, average carbonation, and dry. Pretty good balance to this one, between sweet and bitter without all the caramel bit.

Pours a very clear lighter golden color. The head is quite thick, 5 finger (ok, insanely huge glass), white, frothy. Nice lacing on the glass.
The nose is quit malty. I don't get much beyond it.
Taste - kind of a buttery flavor. Malty. Slight hop on the backside, but very slight.
Feel is quite full bodied.
I bought this beer because it came in a set with a huge stein, but it isn't a bad beer at all. I wouldn't mind having another.
