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."

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is hoppy with some spices.

I’m kinda wondering what year this was.... no clue of date. Not impressive sourish malt aroma Nice head cream colored lasted a short while.. Nice lacing. Sorta lemony sour malt taste, with bad sour-bitter aftertaste. I think this is worth once a year, but not much more.

Dedollewaitor (14103) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2006
Yellow see through (pilsner look) with little white head. Aroma of pilsner malts and easy hops. Easy fruityness & easy spice. Little Watery texture. Short slight hoppy finish. Average!

No head, fizzy golden-amber, sour spicy sting. Skunk started here. This one needs to be consumed fresh.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2006
Looks like a pale lager, smells like a pale lager and sure tastes like a pale lager. And it leaves a real nasty cloying feel in my mouth.

Draught at Berliner Bierfestival. Clear pale yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Flavour of malts and hops. Hoppy finish.

It’s amazing that I love Franziskaner so much, cuz the Doppelbock and this left much to be desired (and this on draft, nonetheless). Somewhat off aroma, some grass, some earthiness. The pour was nice an amber with a nice thick head that thinned out but laced well. The flavor was bready and somewhat spiced and the alcohol was detectable. Some grass in there too (not my cup of tea). Mouthfeel was fairly standard.

HenrikSoegaard (10771) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2006 Bottle. Creamy good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Nice hoppy and malty aroma. Fruity hoppy taste moderate bitter finish. Oily palate and lively carbonated. Nice oktoberfest.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Light in color, considering the malt accent of this beer. Clean, firm, smooth, good for a session beer.

Svesse (6295) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2006
(Bottled) Golden colour with a firm white head. Malty nose with citrus, pineapple (yes, rather unexpected), hints of butter and toffee and a slight bitterness. Same aromas in the flavour, with the fruit leaning more towards apricots. Malty finish with more fruity than dry bitterness, rather short. Not as I expected, but still nice.
