      Package: bottled
      Score: 14 points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Golden. Malty aroma. Malty flavor, with some hops, not at all bitter. "Helles" Alt? That's a new one. (As of 2004, it's no longer in production.)

      Place: Peabody's Ale House, Oshkosh WI
      Score: 14½ points
      Overall Impression (3)
      Bright golden-brown. Big thick head. Fruity-floral hop aroma. Medium body. Sweet maltiness at first gets obliterated by a huge fruity fairly bitter blast of hops. Tasty beer, but not an Oktoberfest.
