Ein Maß at the Cannstatter Wase. Deep golden color, large fluffy white head with nice lacing. Aroma of black pepper, straw. taste is peppery green hay. Nicer than most Oktoberfest beers.

Many thanks for this swing-top bottle to kevnic2008. Piwo srednie ogolnie mowiac/ piana tez srednia i średnio trwala. kolor ciemno zloty lub jasno bursztynowy. Smak ziarnisty lekko karmelowy sporo toffi i krowki. trochę słonecznika prazonego w karmelu. ogolnie słodkawe i delikatne piwo choć niewielka ilość chmielowej goryczki tez dalo się wyczuć.

Seems like the Brewmaster was told to make an Oktoberfest style beer, but had to brew it with existing inventory. Beer has a slight toffee aroma. Flavor is sweet, a little malt, and some carbonic tang and that’s about it. Appearance was a small creamy head. Totally forgettable beer. Give the bottle to a homebrewer.

500ml swing top bottle, last new rating from local grocer going out of business, a German beer among the Balkans. Golden Marzen color with lots of bubbles and a thick head. Nose is not only malty, but more like a cereal grain mash that sometimes comes with cheaper German imports. But at least it’s gain and not corn, thank you Reinheitsgebot! Taste, though, is a little bit watery, and there’s a bit of fusel alcohol. But then the fare code is indecipherable, so I can’t say if it’s been on a store shelf for too long. Despite my downgrade on taste, it’s probably pretty good in its homeland, as I hope to one day discover.

clear golden color with nice full lacy head. Very weak malt aroma. Taste is much better but still nothing to write home about either.Has some hints of Sekt in it.Too bitter and carby for a normal Oktoberfest Bier. If the label did not say it was was a Fest beer I would have classed as a below average Pils

BeerViking (3983) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Flip-top bottle bought in Germany, amber with a fast-settling head and light aromas of dry hay and caramel. Dry-sweet and a little dusty, with hints of onion and cardboard. Not so good. .

500 mL swingtop bottle. Kind of a dark pee colored pour with a quickly dissipating head. Bready / toasty, malty, medium to lighter palate - but not a lot here for my tastes.

Imported bottle. Reminds me of the traditional fest beers that I had in Germany in the mid 1980s. Aroma is fresh. Light yellow straw color, somewhat lighter than a lot of fest beers. Great taste and blend of hops and malt. Sweet finish. I would buy this again.

* Old rating, best before 03.02.11. Süffiges, leicht getreidiges und leicht süßliches Festbier. Nett.
