Appearance: Yellow, lots of carbonation bubbles, but only a mild head.

Smell: Bready, sweet.

Taste: Fruity right off the bat with apple/grape flavors. A little bit of grassy hop comes through. Light body, fizzy feel. Very sweet.

Overall: Beer #2 from the Paulaner mix pack was the Octoberfest Wiesn. Summit recently put out a Wiesn fest beer so I was interested to see how this compared. Unfortunately, I didn't particularly care for this beer. Too sweet, with raw grape/apple flavors usually found in cheapo malt liquors. Strange mouthfeel too.

Pours a clean, clear, golden color. There is a white frothy head, about two fingers of it, that soon settles to only a halo around the edge.
Not much to the nose, there are however some malts and grains to be picked up.
The beginning is neutral, slight sweetness, followed by a balanced body, some more bitterness perhaps, coming to a nicely bittery finish.
Nothing special, but still enjoyable.
