Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear reddish brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing which somewhat stuck to the glass. The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, a mild grassy hop and a earthy yeast with a hint of caramel. The taste was moderately sweet with a light hint of caramel in the beginning and finished with a nice malty sweet flavor that had a mild hoppiness to it at the end. The flavor stayed with you for a decent amount of time allowing for the taste buds to fully enjoy all this brew has to offer. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry yet just a little oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall the maltiness and mild sweetness of this brew works so wonderfully together. No wonder they call it the original. This just so happens to be the first Oktoberfest I ever tasted many years ago and in my opinion still is one of the best.

Drank as Hacker-Pschorr Original Oktoberfest. Aroma was pretty decent sweet malt coming from the characteristic dark orange pour with a moderate head. Taste is malty and lightly sweet but nothing special beyond that. Finish is clean with a little sweetness. Original Oktoberfest is a typical macro with a muted flavor -- pretty middle of the road.

16.9oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a medium amber with a decent head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and slight toffee. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is darn tasty as I am not a fan of this style.

Keg at The Southern. Pretty much yer standard Germanic lager. Pale gold, thin white head. Grassy nose, light vegetal notes. Light astringency on the taste, crisp finish, could drink it by the litre if required, but not required today - forgot my leiderhosen.
