This beer is limited in brewing, so if you want it get it when you see it as it can be hard to find. That being said, it pours nicely with a generous head into a beer mug. The foam is plentiful a presents a nice sweet aftertaste to compliment the malty aromas. The beer itself is light and refreshing with more of a hoppy taste than expected from the taste of the foam. Is this a yummy beer? Absolutely, but is this beer super delicious? Not really. It is definitely a good beer, but not an excellent beer one would expect from a pricey limited edition Paulaner. Grab a can if you have not had it, but do not grab more than one.

Pours a clear yellow, almost helles lager color from the 1 litre can into the Masskrug that came with it.

Smell is of light pilsner malt, with a touch of darker malt. Hardly any hops. Faint grain and alcohol.

Tastes more like a Helles lager than an Oktoberfest. I think it is a Helles lager honestly, with perhaps a touch more caramel or munich malt.

Honestly can't believe this is 6% alcohol. It's very water, very thin, but I suppose it's ok. I wouldn't pay the prices they charge for this beer.

Pours a nice clear golden yellow with large white head. Head is not very long lasting, no lacing of glass. Aroma is very faint grassy malt. . Taste is non descript, sweet, boozy. Mildly tingly mouthfeel,

Bought this because of the free glass.

A: A dark golden hue very nice looking brew, a nice two finger head at the top and left a little bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Not to crazy of a nose, a little bit of bicuit and hops and slight hint of lemon zest.

T: Same as the nose, nothing to crazy with the taste, wheaty, and biscuits throughout, and hop presence is there as well.

M: Medium bodied and a good amount of carbonation.

D: Easy drinking beer, very subtle and refreshing but nothing wild on the taste side of things. Glad I got the monstrous glass with it!

Appearance - Your basic medium yellow that is very clear and with a medium head. Not very impressive but still not bad looking

Smell - Hoppy, very light tones of grain and sweetness.

Taste - A very light beer tasting beer with a good medium bitterness but mellow enough to be delicious and drinkable

Mouthfeel - last longs and has great carbonation to keep the good flavor around for several minutes

Overall - a decent drinking beer but I would want a bit more on the appearance and semll

Stein and 1L can gift set from CBX.

A: gold; 3-finger, puffy white head; nice story and info on the can.

S: sweet malt; light bready yeast aroma; sweeter than I expected.

T: sweet malt; light bread crust; not much bitterness - perhaps some dryness on the finish, but barely; quite sweet, but still OK.

M: medium mouthfeel; low carbonation; a touch slick; nothing surprising

O: a nice Oktoberfest beer; perhaps a tad too sweet, but still very drinkable - I can definitely knock out a 1L can of it.
