COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, roasted malts, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very enjoyable oktoberfest bier.

It had a dark brunt orange amber color which is very different from the light golden Spaten Oktoberfest that I remember enjoying a few years ago. The body had good clarity and the head was thin and faded fast leaving very little head or lace. The aroma was light and had floral hops with a slight skunk popping out though sweet caramel and candy like malt notes. (My wife noted that is was like smartees candy.) It had a sweet candy like malt flavor with some mild floral hops. Hop bitterness was very light and coved up buy the sweetness of the malt. It finishes on the sweet side with hint of grassy hops. It was about medium bodied with a smooth texture and light carbonation.

Huge white head, clear bright-golden colour. Very fruity and hoppy aroma with honey notes. Spicy taste and a lasting, bitter palate. Good one!

Nice oktoberfestbier, probably my second favourite out of the more common lot. Sweeter malt than most, well balanced and smooth for 5.9%.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head, short duration and moderate lacing. Aroma has notes of cereal, hay and malts. Flavor is moderate malty, grassy notes, moderate hoppy, slightly bready. The final is slightly bittery with light sweet notes.
