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."

badwhale (339) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle to glass pint. Pours a clear amber color with a decent off white head. I can’t describe the smell, but it’s not appealing to me. Flavor is very....not much. Maybe sweet skunky malt. Bleh.

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

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2014
Nice oktoberfestbier, probably my second favourite out of the more common lot. Sweeter malt than most, well balanced and smooth for 5.9%.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 29, 2013
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.

Dzhigga (54) - Kirov, RUSSIA - NOV 11, 2013
Light bitterness. Medium malt. Some honey and citrus in flavour. Small head. Interesting beer, but not something special. Not bad.

caesar (4711) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2013
Bottled, large sample. Clear golden color, short head. Aroma of sulphury german yeast, slight spicy hop, bit grainy malt, hint of dust and cellar. Soft bitter taste, bit malty. Ok stuff.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2013
Bottled, gift from my mother. Golden colored, medium to small head. Hoppy "German" nose, somewhat soapy. Hopbitter flavor, some malts, quite thin mouthfeel. OK, but not overly impressive.

madquacker (1019) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2013
Soapy and fluffy. Golden colour and low carbonation. Nothing to make it stand out but a clean unobjectionable quaffer with a high ABV kick.
