Tap. Craaazy light. Had to check with bartender that it was right beer. Crisp body. Good balance of European malts with some good yeast. A good beer, but not what I’d call an Oktoberfest at all in taste or appearance.

I was very disappointed with this beer very light and tastes like a pilsner more than anything.

paintedmaple (405) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2014
.52 gallon bottle with flip top...nice. Golden, lemony beer that reminded me more of a wheat than a Marzen. OK to drink...would be good ice cold on a hot day.

Draft, golden pour with white head. Light malty aroma. Flavor is light with malt and light spice hints. Very mild overall.

doubelknv3 (981) - Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Golden-cloudy, white head and minor lacing. Citrus, lemon, and mildly floral aroma. Medium bodied, lemony, citrus, medium bitterness, mild dry zing. More pilsner like than Marzen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 4, 2013
2 Litre swingtop. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of some floral hints, some lemon, dry malt. Tastes minerally with some light noble hop presence on the finish. Light, drinkable lager that borders on a pale lager.

On the light side of the scale, this beer from the source looks yellow, a little thin in the edges, as it pours. The body fills in a bit as it fills the glass, though it leans lighter with a yellow hue in what finally reveals itself as a pale orange body. The head, off-white, is soft but rises to nearly a finger. Retention is pretty good, and the lace left is mostly spotty with a little patching accompanying. While clean, the aroma's fairly light, but it's not exactly weak. It is a little fainter than it should be. Along with fruitiness, caramel and biscuit dough, there's a slight grainy astringency, but it's not too strong. Sturdy malts offer the traditional mix of toast and caramel as well as fruiter type of sweetness. Slightly spicy with a bit of leaf, and a touch herbal as well, the hops definitely seem to be German. The body is light to medium, certainly lighter than Americanized bersions, but with biting crispness and steady carbonation all the way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BullBoozer (6) - - OCT 23, 2013 does not count
Draft - pale golden color, thin but persistent head, refreshing smell with only faint hints of grain and malt, drinks smoothly, with only slight aftertaste of lingering grain flavors pasted across the tongue. Decent representative of style, but not outstanding.

fluffy (1630) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2013
a pitiful example of the style, basically the bud light of oktoberfests. thin, watery, flavorless, practically clear. not a surprise the image for it is in a clear plastic cup.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 23, 2013
2 liter bottle from BevMo: Liquid was a golden straw blonde with dense carbonation bubbles rising to the top and created a fluffy pillow of foam head. Aroma is faint with grained malts with a whiff of honey and Euro style hops. The festbier drinks semi sweet with grainy malted barley and a soft touch of the hops but it somewhat boring even though it’s a nice session beer to quaff down while watching the 2012 World Series.
