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."

highlandlad (1412) - 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)

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 (8358) - 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.

macdeffe (52) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2004
This is a very good lager. It good notes of aroma hops which isn’t very common in traditinal european lagers. More similar to czech beers than other german lager I have tried. My favourite german lager...

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Bottle - 500ml. Limpid gold body topped with a nice foamy head. Decent and well-balanced malty/hoppy aroma with flowery notes. Taste has some character and hides the alcohol pretty well. Not extraordinary, but quite drinkable.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2004
I found it thin and unvenetful, it has the required malt overtones. A clean brew but nothing special

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Golden-orange color. Decent durable off-white head. Sweet, malty bready aroma. Flavor sweet and toasty, minimal hop contribution. Has some nutty flavors in the background. Overall a bit thin on the palate and flavors seem to fade quite quickly, but has a very clean refreshing finish. An average German Oktoberfest.

Bottled. A lemony grassy slightly sweet aroma to this light orange coloured beer. The taste is malty with a pleasant buttery smoothness. I liked this.
