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."

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 11, 2005
Shining yellow color, fizzy and luminous. Creamy and adherent foam, good persistence. Detached malty scent, light metallic on the end. Slightly dry, little lively taste. Determined alcohol and malty notes on the end. Lightly watery.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a decent, white head. Very soft mouthfeel, but otherwise this is all malt - lovely, sweet malt with only a moderate bitterness. A wee hint of metal. But overall a very pleasant brew. 100600

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2005
50 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. A clear golden colour with a rocky beige head. Malty aroma of some flowors. Good taste of malt and fruit, hints of bitterness.

pivnizub (8810) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2005
Bottle: Light golden coloured, thin fluffy layer; shy malty nose, traces of fruitiness (citrus), traces of cardboard too; sweetish start, fruity (honey) malty taste, sweetish flavour, some very light bitterness in the short finish. O.K., but not overwhelming at all.......

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Pours a clear brownish-copper with a light tan 1/4 inch head. Lots of fine lacing. Smells sweet and lighlty malty. A bit grassy like fresh hay and lightly sour. Taste is grassy up front followed by caramel malt. Fruity with a floral hoppy finish. Mouth is a good balance. Lightly crisp and lightly malty. It’s not bad and damn drinkable. Really smooth and satisfying even though it is not an outstanding Oktoberfest. A solid choice for a session brew this season.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2005
Quaffable German Oktoberfestbier. Poured a pale brown colour with a lasting moderate head. Gorgeous nose bursting with aromatic hops. Smelled fresh and inviting. Creamy palate and very smooth. Delicate malty body with hay-like hop notes. Marred by a slight chalkiness in the finish - sample may have been past its best. Otherwise excellent. (Bottle)

yayforbeer (752) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2005
A decent and drinkable example of oktoberfest, but has a few rough lager edges. I liked the Hacker-Pschorr and the Paulaner versions better.

Sammy (8582) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2005
malts without being sweet,and drinkable. Some bitterness in finish for aftertaste. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Light colour. Grassy herbal. Palate cleaner. Complements of Raymond at Abbey Brewing in Miami Beach, where they very suitably carbonate.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2005
One of the best examples of Oktoberfestbier out there. Don’t pass this one up- creamy, slightly sweet and bitter. Great brew.

Very little aroma noticed. Thin head. Light brown, slightly hazy color. The taste had a nice taste of hops and malts.
