Poured this at a good temperature with a small off-white head little lace and a clear light amber. The aroma is lightly caramel malt. Flavor is like aroma and seems to be just the regular warSteiner with some more caramel malt. Body is okay. It's an okay Beer But not much of an Oktoberfest beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Filtered tan-orange-yellow body. Creamy, steady white head. Doughy body, very pleasant lager tones. A touch of noble hops balances it out. Very fresh tasting...though it says it was best before May 2014...it is late August 2014 as I drink it...perhaps a mistaken date as this tastes pretty good still. Respectable offering at a great price.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The body has a deep golden color with lots of nice carbonation and great clarity. A small bright white and loosely packed head sits on top but it quickly disappears and leaves no lacing behind. The nose has light malt with a touch of toasted biscuit and some nice floral/perfume like hops. Also noticeable is a hard mineral water note in the nose. The flavor has the same toasted biscuity malt and floral hops in the nose with mineral sweetness up front that quickly turns dry by the finish. The palate has a light to medium body with smooth yet active carbonation.

Malty aroma that goes with the light orange appearance and thin white head.Taste of toasted malt lite bittering hops and mild carbonation.a good solid marzen but in my opinion the Sam Adams Oktoberfest is better.still very good to get me through summer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into dimpled mug, best before 5/28/2014. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of honey, bread, cracker, pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with decent strength. A bit too much yeast fruitiness in the nose. Taste of honey, bread, cracker, light caramel, floral, grass, pear, apple, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Slight herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, bread, cracker, light caramel, floral, grass, pear, apple, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish. Nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good Oktoberfest style. Good balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
