Light golden-brown colour. Fresh grainy aroma and light caramel. Somewhat watery of body, and a little caramelly. Reminds me of some Russian dark lagers.

(Draught) Pours a clear golden color with a descent-sized white head. Sweet malt and some hops. Nothing too exciting.

Bottle from BevMo. Orange tinged gold color with a huge white head. Fresh veg aroma. Not bad, just not beer. Rather light body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is really sweet malt with some sort of herb/veg flavor. Maybe even a hint of mint. It’s incredibly unusual, and somewhere there’s a beer drinker who would love this. It’s just not me. Finish is rather clean, but grainy. The aroma, appearance, flavor and palate aren’t that bad. Despite that, I just don’t enjoy it. DP.

Draft. Clear dark amber with a small white head that diminished quickly. Good sweet malt aroma. Medium body with thin texture. Moderate malty flavor with a medium finish.

Ratman197 (9800) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at Old Chicago Westminster poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, light fruittiness and light earthiness with a crisp lingering carmel finish.

Gold pour, big white head. Very malty aroma with caramel notes and nice bready notes. Lots of bready malts and a crisp finish. Nice.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2006
On tap a pint at Pizza Plant. Fresh with abundant lace and white head, apple juice appearance of body. Taste is a bit complex, with fruity toasty nutty malty character. Nothing tremendous. Fizzy carbonation detracted. Ayinger was superior vertical on Octoberfest.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
On draught at the German Village Oktoberfest. I guess this is a newer offering from Warsteiner and isn't a terrible attempt. Hazy orange color with a thin light beige head. More hops than malt in the aroma, which is kind of a change in this style for me. Medium-bodied and almost over-carbonated with the hop profile dominating, although the malt begins to assert itself a little more on the backswing. The finish is rather slick. This isn't a great beer by any stretch but it does the job nicely on a cold Oktoberfest evening.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle from angrypirate06. Pours with a very pale golden body with a small white head. Too light in hue for even a domestic German Marzen. Aroma is grainy and a bit corn like (reinheitsgebot?), toasty with light metallic notes and a sweetness. Taste is grainy and finishes dry but with some odd and inappropriate fruit esters in the finish. Thin and dry. Not really good.
