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.

Murrow (93) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Bottled. Pours pale to medium amber. White head quickly dissipates. Subtle aroma of overripe fruit. Sweet malt flavor up front with hints of ripe red apple and pear. Nicely balanced with touch of hop bitterness. Slightly dry and earthy finish with a small amount of alcohol. Light bodied, smooth mouthfeel. A pleasing, refreshing beer.

shrubber85 (10668) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Draft. Lightly buttery barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Moderately sweet barley malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Nice body. Smooth - this was my 4th liter of beer during Oktoberfest so some of the subtle nuances may have escaped me.

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.
