Pale copper hue. Mostly malty in the nsoe with some metallic scent. Maybe from the cap? Bready. Medium mouthfeel and the smells of breadiness and maltiness are reinforced in the taste. More substance. Prettty enjoyable.

Yes this beer is delicious. BUT I’m not all about it like some folks. Could be the style doesn’t appeal to me like it once did. Sweet malts on the aroma, bright and clean carbonation on the palate. Would be easy to drink this by the litre in an enormous stein.

Pint bottle from Trader Joe's. Very thick head but with minimal lacing. Lighter bodied than was initially expecting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Trader Joe.
Poured a brilliant, crystal-clear copper. Nice pillowy head and good lacing. Smelled sweet malt, caramel and biscuit. Body is lighter than expected and carbonation is higher than expected, but this is a very malty beer nonetheless. It has a faintly astringent/cloyingly sweet aftertaste at first, but I got used to it quickly.

Pours light amber colored with huge white cloudy head. Rather light malty aroma with hints of bread and caramel. Flavor is primarily caramel and lightly roasted malts but well balanced so it’s not as sweet as some Oktoberfests. Very smooth, clean finish.

Very nice Oktoberfest beer. I had the opportunity to taste it side by side with Paulaner, Spaten and Weihenstephen fest beers all on tap. This one was my favorite and the one I thought most truly represented the style. Nice amber color, good Munich malt sweetness and a distinctive German charecter.

Very very smooth. Extremely easy drinking. Before I knew it bottle was gone. Very malty and sweet, good strait forward marzen.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 They make great beer in the town of Aying. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. Pours a clear amber with good foam retention. The aroma is strongly of DMS. Way too much sulfur in both the nose and the flavor. Lots of cooked corn and vegetables in the profile. There are much better examples of this style being brewed in the US. I am surprised that their quality control has let this slide and have the feeling that the batches which did not quite turn out as desired were exported to places where the beer drinkers are more "understanding".

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a brilliant orange color with a thick light tan head with good lacing. Some of the longest legs I've ever seen on a beer. Aroma is subtle sweet malt as is the flavor. Mouthfeel is quite light on the tongue, has a smooth finish and almost no aftertaste. In essesence, the quintessential Oktoberfest beer.
