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 (419) - 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.

Bottle at home. Aroma is grainy malt, straw, touch of hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Not a bad Festbier.

LazyPyro (595) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2016
0.5L bottle. Clear golden yellow colour with a small white head which didn’t last long. Aroma: grainy malts. Taste: grainy malts, hint of grassy hops, light sweetness, low bitterness to finish. Light, with moderate carbonation, a somewhat smooth but watery texture, otherwise quite like a lager. Not the best Oktoberfest beer that’s for sure but it’s a bit better than your average macro lager at least, and very easily drinkable.
