Pours amber with large slightly off-white head with good retention that leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is very light caramel malt.

Taste is sweetish bready malt, caramel, light fruity notes with low herbal bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth medium with moderate carbonation.

Overall, it seems to be one of the best of Oettinger beers. I would say it is Maerzen/Oktoberfest beer, but not a Munich Dunkel.

I bought a half-liter of this at a local discount super-store for .39 euro cents + .08 VAT. I didn't have much hope, given the ridiculously low price, but was very happily surprised.

There was a nice, resilient head, which slowly died off, leaving a small cap and no film. The beer was a light, amber color. The smell was weak, nearly absent, but the taste more than made up for that.

A full-bodied, nutty, very pleasing orchestra of flavors greeted me. There was a very slight hint of fruit - prunes, but not in any sort of a bad way - tumbling off into nearly indiscriminate, but interesting, flavors: hops, fruit rot and a ghost of caramel perhaps.

A moderate bite of carbonation fronted an overall dense beer. Too deep to be a session beer though.

For the price, an unbelievable deal.

.5L served in a glass mug

A- Clear Light brown, with a thich course head, had to be poured in several tries.

S- Toasted malts, slight touch of herbs and earthyness. Toush of hops.

T- Toasted malts. Deep nuttiness, earthly tones and hops.

M- medium body and medium carbonation.

D- Not a bad winter beer, but I wouldn't seek it out.
