The beer pours a deep golden in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy white head. The aroma is honey, grain, straw, grass and flowers. The taste follows the aromas, rich golden grain, honey, sweetness, but then the dryness of straw and grass, with a moderately bitter finish. The beer drinks refreshing, smooth, but crisp. This is an absolute top notch lager, it would be a joy to drink by the liter at Oktoberfest, or anytime.
