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.

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.

pours amber with decent fine bubbled head. nicely malted with light caramel flavor and a decent bitterness on the tounge. recommended as a good quality oktoberfest.

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.

Pours a nice clean clear dark brown color with a large, frothy even creamy white head. Aroma is malty, grain, toasted, somewhat herbal. More on the sweet and not too bitter with a very slight bite. Enjoyable easy drinker.

Limited Edition. 500ml flip top bottle. Golden color...but more body and taste than most Oktoberfest. ...drier version of its vererable Amber sister, Original Okterfest.
