COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the beer that they serve at The Oktoberfest. Sold in the US as "Superior Festbier"

Unser Oktoberfestbier ist die hellere Variante des traditionellen Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen. Sie hat sich im Laufe der letzten Jahrzehnte fest auf der „Münchner Wiesn“ etabliert und sich gegen das ursprünglich dunklere Märzen durchgesetzt.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of roast malts, caramel, and a touch of spice(ginger?). Flavor has a nice smooth sweet roasted taste. A little bitter on the finish.

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Malty and bready smell. Similar taste, noticeable bitterness. Clean and drinkable but not very exciting.

floydian1 (1338) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 28, 2015
Draught @ Bavarian Bier Cafe, Eagle St, Brisbane during their Oktoberfest promotion. It pours clear golden with a good sized frothy white head. Nose and taste is sweet malt grains plus light floral/grassy hops providing a light crisp herbal bitterness. Nice clean medium bodied palate. Eminently sessionable.

vadie (1225) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
Jaune doré avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme des céréales et un peu du malt. Le goût est des céréales, mais avec plein du corps pour une bière tellement claire. C’est un très peu sucré, mais le sucre la fait un peu plus épais. La finale est des céréales avec un peu d’amertume qui est bien en équilibre avec le malt.

Clear golden with a great frothy white head. Fairly sweet with earthy bitterness. Nothing too crazy, but I just really enjoyed this. Could easily have a few of these.
