A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

Clear light amber (golden) pour. Very nice head, lacing and retention. Light, slightly sweet nose, with notes of pear over biscuit. Almost light medium body with a touch of smoothness. Above average carbonation that provides a nice effervescence throughout. The flavor profile is laid back, but has a very nice balance and a bit of complexity. It begins with pear and a touch of lemon, then flows into a rather toasty biscuit light sweetness. The middle effervesces into a slight bitterness over a receding biscuit. The finish approaches crisp and has a noble hop flavor note over a slightly dry character. A solid Oktoberfest, but not world class such as Great Lakes, Hacker-Pschorr or Ayinger.

I would have expected more from this brewery. Light pour. Nice grainy aroma and flavor. Maybe a touch of hops. Not very full bodied for a marzen.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 17, 2014
Draught at Temple Bar Rotschild. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy and bready malt and some diacetyl. Sweetish flavor with grainy and bready malt, some butterscotch and a drier finish, mildly bitter and a bit crisp. Light to medium-bodied. Probably better without poe diacetyl (possibly from dirty tap lines?) but still quite easy-drinking.

solidfunk (4785) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Good balance, easy drinking. A little yeastier than some of the other classic marzens. Finishes with very light sour note. Bottle at Scion.

Found this one on the shelf at Cape wine ans spirits in Delaware, under the name Octoberfest. Next time I’m there I’ll leave it on the shelf. Weissbier, Korbinian, and Vitus are great, but this one left me completely disatified. No taste, sad appearance, no aroma, I have loved all the other Weihenstephaner, but this one disappointed.

11.2 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, yeast and grass. Taste is malts and grass.

erickok (4017) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
Golden body and huge head, quite clear. Say malts, but of good quality. Very faint hops only, but not unpleasant. Easy to drink for sure, with softer carbonation than most German pilsners. Excellent mouth feel, also from the foam, but a bit too sweet for my taste. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

A bit sweeter and more coope body than a typical pale lager but not a whole lot going on here

Bork (387) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Highly drinkable and refreshing German-style pale Oktoberfest. Nice lightly bready maltiness but a little too many flowers in the hops. Not bad.

ibrubeer (159) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Draft @ Four Points LAX. Light color with little head. Light body. Tasted mostly like a hefeweizen. Not much like a modern Oktoberfest.
