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

Pours yellow with a white head. Slightly grassy aroma. Smooth, easy drinking. Ok, not a ton of flavor.

[Bottle] Poured from a large format bottle. Clear and honey in color. Very little head on top. Nose is of grains, grass and vegetal notes. Flavors of musty grains, mild toast and some weird fruity notes. Weak body. Man, this stuff was not good at all. Tasting notes from 11/2014.

Franckg (654) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Arômes prononcé de grains maltés et de levures. Le goût suit cette mouvance. Très âcre dus aux grains et très faible présence de houblons. Carbonation moyenne et faible amertume. Dans la lignée des lagers blondes allemandes commerciale et sans explosion de saveurs

Appearance: mostly clear, a deep gold with some orange notes to it; solid finger of slightly yellowed head, decent lacing. Aroma: slightly grassy, with malty cereal and light toast. Taste: definite notes of toasted white bread, cereal grains, lightly grassy and earthy hops. Finish: medium-length, with lingering grainy notes and just a bare hint of metal. Notes: Not bad at all. Extremely drinkable palate, perfect complement to an Oktoberfest feast. Not close to the best versions of the style, but when it’s the only game in town, that’s fine. On draft at various places in and around ’Germany’ in EPCOT at Disney World.

1.5L (I think--giant swingtop bottle). Thanks, T! Pours a clear pale amber with a light frothy off-white head. Aluminum and maybe a bit of artichoke on the nose. Creamy light body with lively intermittent carb. Leaves, aluminum, and artichoke on the mid palate. Muddled finish.

2 liter swingtop bottle, from Dutch’s for $18. Shared with friends. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Good dots and ropes of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly creamy. Light slick body. Lightly dry finish. Toasty caramel malt, lightly spicy, light rough bite to it. Lightly peppery. The flavor overall is slightly below average for an oktoberfest, but it’s still pretty solid and classicly german style. Nothing great or impressive about it, just a solid oktoberfest. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Decent stuff. Mild metallic. Huge bottle was very fun ("I’m trying to cut back so I only brought ONE beer!!") and a great price for the 2 liter format.
