Definitely not impressed. For a 200+ old German brewery this was very bland with little aroma or taste. Poured a beautiful golden with a small head but tasted like two year old flat fest. Disappointed

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, corn notes, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is sweet Pils malt, light earthy and spicy hops and bitterness with a clean lager character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

The aroma is of a light malt grain. The body is a clear copper color with a pillowy head to startand laces nicely as it slowly fades. Mild sweet malt grain taste. Average carbonation. Mild bitterness with a bold character.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of malt sweetness and bit of citrus. Taste of malt sweetness with a bit of caramel and citrus. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body, smooth but short on flavor. Fairly average beer for the style.

Warsteiner Oktoberfest has a medium, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, gold appearance, with low-to-moderate lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of yeasty bread, and the flavor is of the same, with bread crust, grassy hops, and even some cream ale (cream cheese cake icing) aspects. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly prickly. Warsteiner Oktoberfest finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. RJT

11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Cork and Barrel 23rd Street in Lawrence, Kansas. Best before 20 May 16. The pour is a clear gold yellow with a 1/2 inch white head. The aroma is light sweet malt grain along with a bit of citrus. The taste is the clean sweet malt grain, very much the representation of the nose, along with some of the citrus towards the back, which gets bit unclean in longish finish. As the beer warms, a nice honey herbal comes out giving the beer more flavor. The palate is light bodied with a high level of carbonation and the sweet malt in the finish.

Draft. Pours clear faint copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like faint malt, sweet fruit, corn, and bread. Light body and low carbonation. Smells malty, like fruit, corn, bready.

Ooh! A German Oktoberfest from a brewery that’s been active since 1753. This should be good, right? Wrong. Even with its strangely light color, this Oktoberfest looks quite nice. It smells like... well, practically nothing except for some cereal grains. Flavor is, you guessed it, cereal grains. Malt flavors are nowhere near as smooth or rich as the other Oktoberfests I enjoyed today. These types of beer aren’t exactly renowned for their complexity, but this one is totally one-note.Pretty boring.

Not a fantastic beer. A light Oktoberfest by style standards. I could certainly drink a lot.
