Pour - nice dark, golden color with a big, frothy, pancake batter like head on top. Clean and clear in appearance with nice carbonation and lits of tiny bubbles streaming upwards. Plenty of lacing in this big liter-size mug.

Aroma - sweet malt aroma with some notes of apples and caramel. Not a whole lot else going on. Smells very much like what it is, a darker, sweeter lager.

Taste - honey wheat flavor on the tongue with some caramel flavors coming in the back. Very solid malt flavors with decent carbonation on the tongue and a dry finish. The more sips of this I take the more I realize why this is they type of beer that folks are drinking at Oktoberfest. It's pretty straightforward with no palate killing flavors. Just a smooth, slightly sweet yet balanced lager. Certainly not an easy style of beer to brew but one that will appeal to a good many people in times of revelry.

Overall - easy drinking lager with a touch of honey-like sweetness in the finish of every sip. The hardest part of drinking this beer is lifting this huge liter-sized glass mug over and over again! Thankfully it keeps getting lighter with each gulp. Prosit!
