Coppery golden. Appley aroma , which fades rather quickly. Full bodied, with some dusty hops, as well as a hint of that apple that I detected in the aroma. I suspect this is rather old, and will have to rerate.

Oktoberfest usually aren't style, but this is a very good one, light, malty and balanced. It one of the best of the Marzen style that I've ever had. Cheers Ecrvich and Many Thanks

Bottle (label reading Festbier) - Clear light amber body, not lasting yellowish head; Quite simple malty sugary honey nose; Light thin body, simple bitter sweet; Some length in a malty bitter finish, simple honey sweet sugary flower aroma. Not really interesting and no really well composed.

Doughy malt aroma. Clear clean appearance with a nice tight head. Plenty of lacing. Very clean tasting with just the right amount of malty sweetness. Finishes off with a good dry hop flavor.

Fairly light color for an O-fest, with a big white head with a malty yet perfumy nose (the Hallertau is definitely a common characteristic of the three Wolnzacher brews I’ve tried). Unusually complex for the style, with superb balance. I’ve been disappointed with O-fests lately, and this is one outstanding exception to the trend.

Unusually hoppy for this style. This reminds me of what Victory Lager would be like if it were an Octoberfest beer. The nose is strong Hallertauer. The malt contains, I believe, less of the roasted character that you find with most Maerzens. Instead, this one relies upon hops for structure, which join up with the malt very nicely toward the end. The finish is extremely long and dry. A great beer.

Wonderful noble hop aroma. Lovely apperance in the glass. Great head and lace. The beer is medium bodied with a nice toasty malt complexity. Well made and great. Just enough hops.

(re-rate) Golden colored, dense 1/2 inch head and decent lace. Nose of caramel, toast, perfume, sugary malt and others. Medium bodied, smooth with loads of flavor. Toasted caramel, honey, nuts, elegant malt up the wazoo with a nice load of hallertau’s to balance. Fairly crisp, a bit dry in finish with mineral notes poking through here and there. An absolutley delicious oktoberfest. The best I ever had.
