COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the beer that they serve only at Oktoberfest. It is NOT sold in North America. It is a much lighter beer than the common Oktoberfest-Marzen.

Poured a dark golden hue with a head of foamy ivory that quickly dissapeared. The nose was of toasted malt and a floral/fruity hoppiness. The tatse starts with sweet malts, dark breads and some hints of toffee. Mild to medium bitters come next offsetting the malts. Tastes sweet, bitter, dry, malty and hoppy all at once. The finish was nutty, smooth and mildly bitter. The feel was moderate due to medium to low carbonation. This was a great session beer, and would do just as well in a large stein. A smooth, simple, malty beer, that’s great anytime.

Low malt aroma, lighter amber color, but darker than the spayed oktoberfest. Low hop taste, malty, toastiness on the finish. Finishes dry, very drinkable and tasty. Would like to have more of these. My favorite German Oktoberfest if the 4 German Oktoberfest beer we sampled at my homebrew club meeting..

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Very mild. Not much of an after taste. Goes down easy. Overall a great octoberfest. Had this on tap in Hagerstown, MD. Wife loved it as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Let me start by saying that oktoberfest might be my favorite lager style. My opinion is biased. I like the toasty aroma of this one. Probably less bittering hops than some, making for a smooth quaffability that I find hard to resist. Fantastic with pizza.

On tap at a German restaurant. A very nice lager! Full-flavored with the right amount of bitterness. Refreshing. The beer I ordered was simply called Hacker-Pschorr lager, so I assume this is the same stuff.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours with a big billowy head, but it doesn’t last. Not much aroma, maybe too cold. Beautiful caramel/orange. Smooth, well balanced. A very, very good beer.
